MARISKA BAARS / WOUTER VAN VELDHOVEN / RUTGER ZUYDERVELT
Zeeg

[Ace/Digitalis Industries, www.digitalisindustries.com]

Apparently representing the best of Dutch underground, "Zeeg" is a trio made up of Mariska Baars on guitar, voice and drawings [though you can't hear those], Wouter van Veldhoven on tape recorders, metallophone, melodica and musicbox and Rutger Zuydervelt on guitars, loopstation and various effects. Put the three together in one room and you'll get something that is most closely akin to Finnish scare-house Uton. Each sound is delicately explored as to be savoured on the tip of your tongue. As strange as the source of each noise may appear, it is a part of a larger scheme. Barely audible plucking of the strings meshed with consistently loopy, though low-key percussive barrage ensures end-effect is haunting in its scope and thoroughly satisfying. As the piece wears on, the variations become more pronounced, though each step is carefully measured and considered before it's actually taken. Breath-taking in its unity and its revelation, "Zeeg" is one contender to lull your heavy eyelids that are dropping quickly.
