    SSAB are the duo of Brian Degraw and screenwriter and film director Harmony Korine. This CD contains only one 27-minute track, but at least it's a good one, with what seems like a bunch of shorter pieces segued together. SSAB's music consists of lots of free-for-all clanking and pounding on percussions and different stringed instruments, mixed with bits of samples and electronic collage, as well as some weird singing and chanting that sounds like an Appalachian take on the Residents, circa 1974. It seems to represent the dark, twisted underside of America retching up from the nightmare bowels of a primordial swamp. At times it's noisy and filled with dissonance like in one section where a symphonic opera blares in the background. At others it moves at a more relaxed loping pace, and then all of a sudden a harmonica and banjo will bring it into earthy folk territory, but with a Deliverance-like slant. It gets even more dark and creepy towards the end with the fundamentalist preacher droning in the background. ~ Rolf Semprebon
