Although in and of itself often tempered to the point restraint assumes new, often disturbed (and disturbing) psychedelic or even filmic, properties, this music arrives like a spitting and foaming scream into the insanity of the void and the myriad challenges and questions it inexorably.

Music for Zeitgeist Fighters is the album Gary Mundy, as Kleistwahr, has been promising since properly resurrecting the project for 2014’s This World is not my Home. It’s expansive but concise, beautiful but full of rage and thunder. The music is exquisite in ways noise rarely is, but coursing throughout is this undercurrent of revolt and defiance. In a single month, both Skullflower and Kleistwahr have used the opportunity given to them by Nashazphone to deliver seminal works that reflect the world of 2017 through their own troubled prisms

Christ, It’s Lonely is the title of part three of the most recent release from Gary Mundy (of Ramleh) under the name Kleistwahr, and it’s about as good an indicator of the bleakness to be found mired on This World Is Not My Home as might be required to gauge its intent. pure ecstatic trance music with some curiously redeeming qualities. Tell The World You Tried is the title of one portion of the album; that might possibly be the reaction of some listeners who only made it so far through what is initially something of an endurance test for the uninitiated. Mundy does bring melody and vocals of sorts into play, admittedly scouring them to purgatory and back, just the same as he treats the other sound sources; but as each movement leads to another, so moods heave and plateau, crepitating and flensing sound to the point of damnation and, more importantly, back.
This hot elegy album for the dearly departed Lone Justice is sheer rockabilly road-trip, as well as an illuminating artifact by a smart (albeit frustrated) "crossover" band. Blends of hardcore old-country roots and fast modern originality can be iffy on the charts, but the efforts of post-Emmylou Harris drummer Don Heffington, Little Steven collaborator Ryan Hedgecock on guitar, and bassist Marvin "Mandolin Man" Etzioni are committed
