Von Hemmling - La Guerre Est Meurtre (2002)

Old faithful Elephant 6 collective musicians, Von Hemmling is amongst them. La Guerre Est Meurtre is an experimental, noise album that Jim McIntyre gave out for free a while back. McIntyre was formerly a member of Apples in Stereo and also has been a hand behind Pet Sound Studios where some famed albums where recorded. Although the album is made up of several sections, that doesn't mean that there aren't many quick changes in beat and tempo and instrumentation within each section. The music bounces all over the places and has sound samples of singing or conversation sprinkled about. If my memory doesn't fail me the sections are intended to be listened to in whatever order the listener sees fit, something also done on another E6 album, Circulatory System's Inside Views. A good thing to try if you're feeling adventurous.
