Endless Melt unveils its first release for 2013, a new cassette from Tasmanian mainlanders, Cross Brothers (siblings Daniel and Patrick Cross). 'Live at Rat Palace' documents a recent performance at the artist run space in their former hometown of Hobart. Devolving the audience's collective ear with thirty minutes of unraveling guitar munge, punctuated by unwound anti-rhythms at every turn. Imagine Dead C playing free jazz or Masayuki Takayanagi's New Direction Unit following its most self destructive urges. 'Live at Rat Palace' follows Cross Brothers on a descent into vertical nihilism, plenty of horrors escaping their twin six stringers before settling in the void.
