    This self-titled debut album is another in a series of raw and intimate sessions recorded on the 8-track reel-to-reel deck at the original Hotel2Tango in 1999-2000. The powerful live sound of this unique duo is perfectly captured by Efrim (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, A Silver Mt. Zion), who engineered the record. Eric Craven’s inimitable drumming invokes the polyrhythmic neo-tribalism of The Ex and Dog Faced Hermans while Genevieve Heistek uses a loop pedal to build real-time drones on her amped-up viola and saws away at double-stop madness over top. The pieces on Hangedup range from borderline musique concrete experimentation to 80s new wave pop extrapolations, bound by a minimalist but muscular agenda throughout. Cameo appearances by electric bass and overdubbed effects provide additional well-placed thrust, but this duo can rock as hard as anyone all on their own. A superb debut that set the stage for further unparalleled drum & string attacks on the albums that followed.
