Release Notes:

The Magik Markers, Elisa Ambrogio and Pete Nolan, return as a
duo with their first 'full' release since 2007. Once known for
their experimental, noisy, psychedelic free jams, the group
reinvented themselves for 'Boss', opting for a more
structured, coherent approach. Their new album 'Balf Quarry'
continues in a similar vein.

Mining a similar no-wave/garage-rock sound, comparisons to
Sonic Youth circa 1986 (Evol) are easy to draw (even noted on
the press release) - not surprising considering that they not
only toured with them but at one point had Lee Ranaldo behind
the desk. 'Balf Quarry' is, however, by no means dismissible.

Although just ten tracks make up the record, it feels
incredibly eclectic jumping from slow paced, blues rock-tinged
dirge tracks such as 'Risperdal' and the vengeful, 'Don't Talk
in Your Sleep', to raucous, Stooges inspired hardcore on
'Jerks' and 'The Lighter Side of....Hippies', to sparse
ballads 'State Numbers' and 'Shells'. During '7/23' the group
even touch on surf-rock, but collectively the whole package
still seems to work.

Ideas within the album feel like they are being stretched to
breaking point without ever sounding excessive or needless. A
sense of anxiety and apprehension is notable throughout, and
is only relieved when the band reveals their riotous, unhinged
rock side. The strength here seems to lie in the duo's ability
to trigger uncertainty - even after repeated listens their
effective use of repetitive refrains seems to instil

Scott Colburn produces, bringing a similar vibe to his work
for Animal Collective. Ambrogio's strong vocals certainly
benefit from being brought to the front of the mix - although
in another SY comparison there is certainly an element of Kim
Gordon, both in sound and lyrical styling. Clearly keeping
tuneful and maintaining a melody plays second fiddle to
conveying a mood and atmosphere and it works well. Only on the
contrived sounding µPsychosomaticã does the method seem to
fall short.

'The Ricercar of Dr. Clara Haber' is the only piece on the
album that alludes to the groups past. In many ways
superfluous, it's an instrumental jam that fails to draw the
listener in, sitting uneasily amongst their new found more
formulaic sound. Feeling more like an after-thought forced
reference to their past the album would flow better without

Haunting, detached, tense and occasionally discordant, this is
an intriguing album that certainly won't be making the radio 1
play list, but is likely to garner the group greater cult
appreciation - even if it is, to some extent, closing the
door on their original art/noise driven fan-base.
