The Jesus Lizard/Einstürzende Neubauten combo The Unsemble debuts “Act 3”

What happens when Duane Denison of The Jesus Lizard and Tomahawk teams up with Alexander Hacke of Einstürzende Neubauten? Toss in Silver Jews drummer Brian Kotzur and the answer is The Unsemble. The collaboration came together during the summer of 2012, with Denison on guitar, Hacke on bass, and all three members on keyboards and electronics. The mission: a vector for improv and composition that ropes in the rock contortionism of The Lizard as well as the itchy industrialization of Neubauten. What came out the other end is a self-titled album full of twistedly cinematic, propulsively arty, subliminally tuneful instrumentals—among them the double-jointed “Act 3,” which is being debuted here. The Unsemble will be released March 4 via Ipecac Records.
