Western Saharan musician/activist Aziza Brahim's new album Abbar el Hamada (Across the Hamada), is a commanding and compassionate musical statement about, and for, the tumultuous age in which we live.

Apparently, destroying our faces once this year just wasn?t enough. After thrashing and shredding us with the Hayaino Daisuki EP just a few months
back, former Discordance Axis vocalist Jon Chang comes shrieking out of Hoboken to smash us in the man-tits with Gridlink. Pissing through 11
songs in under 13 minutes, Chang and his boys Matsubara (guitar), Ikeda (drums) and Okada (bass) whip up the kind of insanely technical grind blur
that kills grandmothers instantly and makes the dudes from Napalm Death feel even older than they really are. Best of all, you can play the entire
album twice in less time that it takes to listen to Reign In Blood, which is perfect for all you ADD-types out there who stopped reading this halfway
through the first sentence so you could IM your co-worker about the... hey, is that a real iguana? What's on TV tonight? Where are my keys?
