"Strangle, Strangle, Strangle..."

From Tolerancia Picante

On Tolerancia Picante Norwegian rock band MoE join forces with saxophone player Mette Rasmussen. The music’s mix of no wave, sludge, rock and free jazz maps “the sound of a world without empathy, filled with contradictions, lies and abuse of power. The sound of a world that wants to build walls rather than build understanding. This is jazz, this is rock and this is noise.” Tolerancia Picante features sleevenotes by Beat poet Anne Waldman.
