Reviews for In hoarse cartography

The Wire, October 2005

'This is awesome, unclassifiable stuff. In Hoarse Cartography is a collection of improvised, amplified, freeform jams which relocate the spirit of ESP disc or Kraut marginals like Anima-Sound to a rehearsal room in Brighton. Instrumentation - like Interstella Space-era Coltrane - consists of drums plus instrument; in this case wigged out electric guitar rather than cosmic sax. Information is kept to a bare minimum (no track title, no personnel) and the limited edition CD-R arrives in an obliquely spray-painted jewel case which signals hand-made, refusenik intent. All of which forces you to concentrate on the music, which ranges from the sparsely exploratory to the completely bizarre - track four consists of giggles punctuated by squalls of unfettered guitar noise. But there is always something to capture the imagination, particularly during the elongated psychedelic jams that somehow come across as scrawny, lo-fi descendants of prime 1967 Pink Floyd. Available for a fiver, from the Foolproof website.'

Comes with a smile, September 2005

'...Best of the bunch is the feral roar of the Raised by Wolves duo of Andy Pyne and Matt Colegate. 'In Hoarse Cartography' is a collection of untitled recordings that recall the vintage freakouts of Amon Duul, the explorations of AMM and pretty much everything that The White Stripes don't do with the guitar/drums format. Raised by Wolves strength is to transport the listener into the heart of a particularly fearsome workout of Interstella Overdrive over the course of the album's nine improvised snapshots, with some distant cromagnon hollers to boot. A heady brew.'
