Reviews

Some Ditty a Mountain II

Organart, Thing of the Day:

All rhythmically dramatic and building and building in a manner that goes almost unnoticed until you suddenly find yourself caught up in the subtle rush of it all – «Cor! This is good!».
Full article here


Gonzo Circus:

Episch, opbouwend, drums die pas echt loskomen halverwege, maar overal is net dat hoekje af om wat Combineharvester maakt, te onderscheiden van het peloton.


Rokko's Adventures:

Ein halbstündiges, mantraartiges Stück, das genau ein paar Zentimeter über dem Boden schwebt.


FreiStil:

Alles treibt nach vorn. Die voluminöse Basedrum bounced. Die Saiten folgen gehorsam, und Elfen ringen sich durch.


Mow Grass Slit Throats The Like

Vice:

*******


Loop, Nino Kühnis:

… legt McNeill ein Dutzend kurzweilig-bizarre Skizzen an die in der Mehrzahl an knorriges Baumgeäst im Winter erinnern. «Am I confusing you?», haucht McNeill im letzten Song der Platte. Ja. Und aber auch: Nein. Denn wer in dieser Platte einen freund findet, findet einen Freund fürs Leben.


Weltwoche, Albert Kuhn:

«Mow Grass, Slit Throats, The Like» — mäh den Rasen, schlitz Kehlen auf, so Sachen: nach üblichen Massstäben ein schwieriges Album zwischen Rock, Folk, Noise und Elektronik. Nach psychologischen oder Gefühlsmassstäben aber eine völlig plausible Sache.


Auf Abwegen, Zippo:

Combineharvester kombiniert in seiner Musik Elemente aus Wave, Math-Rock, Experimentalkram und Indie. Nie ist der Verlauf eines Lieds vorherzusehen, immer kann sich um einen sehr kurzen Text ein langes Musikstück herum gruppieren oder eine kleine Lesung eingefangen werden.


Kieler Nachrichten, Jörg Meyer;

«Fishes are good at swimming upstream.» So gegen den Strom bewegen sich alle Songs von Combineharvester. Manche sind gerade mal 30 Sekunden kurz — musikalische Haikus als «Hülle» für Texte, die als miniaturisierte Einfälle wie ein fernes Wetterleuchten aufblitzen.


Trespass, Monthy:

Combineharvester's «Mow Grass, Slit Throats, The Like» ist eindeutig etwas für musikalische Borderliner.


Basellandschaftliche Zeitung, Urs Grether:

Eine kleine, feine Superband


Bio & press-pics etc

Combineharvester is Marlon McNeill. Musically he has reached out to various different styles as a member or guest in: Speck (Bass), Trencher (Vocals), I Was A King (Bass), Schorf (Samples, Vocals), Papiro (Electrical Organ), Klangklinik (Guitar), Acid Mother's Temple SWR (Bass), Aie ça Gicle (Guitar).

Under the moniker of Combineharvester (consistently misspelled) he staged his first appearance in 1998 by releasing the cassette « … trees in a field». Followed by «Retrospection» (2001, A Tree In A Field Records), «Mow Grass, Slit Throats, The Like» (2008, A Tree In A Field Records), the River Sound Studio VII Kassette (2010 Six songs played on the acoustic guitar and recorded in an empty room) and recently the 12" «Some Ditty A Mountain II». Besides some compilations and a split single with I Was A King.
