By pushing the boundaries of what a bow and a pair of drumsticks can deliver, the Montreal-based viola and drums duo Hangedup mesmerised audiences for years. The band steadily expanded its strategies and sonics over its 5-year history and was at the peak of its powers with Clatter For Control, the third and final full-length. Gen’s bi-amplified viola rig, linked to a live audio looper, creates a vortex of jigs, reels and air-raid drones, pummeled along by some of the heaviest polyrhythmic skinbeating we’ve ever heard. An unbelievably beautiful racket that finds the band utterly on fire, swooping and slamming around with varying degrees of controlled chaos. Both noisier and more melodic than anything they had yet put to tape, Hangedup raised their compositional and improvisational bars on Clatter For Control. Eric and Gen played as if sharing the same cortex and spine.
