Midwest Trash Vortex is the laid back noise duo composed of Cujo and Bobby of Chicago. With former projects such as Meester Magpie and Static Swamp, its easy to see the roots forming this noisey yet elegant sound. Smoke filling the air and echoes of looping tapes arises a western sounding raga full of wind instruments and more loops. This meditative jam is then flushed into jolts of thick sound rushing the ear. When you start to cringe you are then brought back to reality where things are usually ok and The Eagles can slow your heartbeat. This was an amazing piece we were lucky to track from these two while on tour with friends Scammers. Just shy of 20 minutes there isn't one minute that isn't worth hearing.
Listen along and delight your eyes with great footage of Midwest Trash Vortex live during the recording of this session.
