Dustin Wong - Mediation of Ecstatic Energy

Dustin Wong

Mediation of Ecstatic Energy
Record Label: Thrill Jockey
Review by John Noyd
August 2013

A mad dash of flashy contrasts ranging from gracefully impatient to spaciously contagious, the concerted fury from Wong’s electro-shocked six-string ink-blots steer from weary pirouettes to imbedded shreds.  A lunging jungle funneling squawks, snorts and groans among galactic static and gurgling murmurs, “Ecstatic,” snaps, relapse and recaps swimming in brazenly layered loops as the occasional drums and floating vocals conjure a varied menagerie of musical avarice simmering in a vapor-trail cocktail poured over dancing stampedes. The last in a trilogy of pedal-driven guitar smarts, the former member of art-rock ensemble Ponytail bristles in blissful missiles, stunning machine-gun runs bundled in an elastic tapestry whose wild-eyed asides slide into clock-work waltzes. Witness this bewitching wizard playing Madison’s Good Style Shop September 21st and Milwaukee’s Quarters September 23rd.
