In the autumn of 2012 MV & EE were roastin' venues across the great divide on the deep space circuit (and beyond). This memphis hoot was about 1/3 in on their major "coast to roast" tour, flyin' free(k) flag flutter, flannel amps and good ol' US blues with multitrack tapes/matrices to prove it. the duo exchanges on this ride were monumental demarcations and this one brings you SO THERE, it's like you were sitting with headphone monitors for a private showcase (literally) of their far reaching music, which at this point is now at a legendary peak. should you need an introduction, extended jams/exploratory tunes meet alien vocal contact and explosive fuzz drenched "acoustic" folk forms…then there is the raga off trail. this becomes the earth for them to jettison wings into what might seem like "no direction (home)" but actually is clear articulation & yet never played the same way twice. dig it…LISTEN to their live shows, they have to be heard to be believed. the deployment of the compositions on this HEROINE document a watershed period of MV & EE and they have moved beyond their early influences (help yourself/jerry garcia/charles plymell) to become unique masters. Matt & Erika flying on a general out of SOMEWHERE untouchable freedom rag with weirdness & execution that literally blows away most contempo units trying to mine the same sonic depths. no COMpetition. there's a vibe at this show that is totally outta time and once again proves that there can be some kinda link between guitar deities of yesteryear, all things "dead" and general good ol' greatness when it wallops ya in the inner ear. catch a slice from this tapers dream and stim out. their "environments > feelin' fine" is worth the synapse burned.
