Cloudland Canyon's Requiems der Natur 2002-2004 edges wearily forward, often at the pace of an imbecile on his cell phone in rush hour traffic. One-half of this overtly experimentalist duo, Kip Uhlhorn, beckons from Brooklyn rock outfit Panthers and joins German musician Simon Wojan in Cloudland for improvisation previously tried in a limited number of live performances. The inklings that translated well to tape require a close, patient listen, as Uhlhorn and Wojan meander through sometimes epic-length test runs of drunken unorthodox jam sessions laced with vocal shrieks and field recordings. In occasional moments of grandeur, the duo finds delirious mashes in howling and cheap synth bursts, such as the end of 'Clearlight Intryâ?� or in the bells-and-machine commotion of the obviously mislabeled 'Joyful Noise.â?� These Requiems were recorded in seven days, and for anyone in earshot, it must have been a hell of a long week.
