A thing of the day, another slice, for what it might be worth, to the heart of this or any other mater, that and a golden arm that has rusted from the elbow to the hand from leaning on your windowsill. Waterman Fragment are from Boston, Massachusetts, they say they were “born in harmony with oblivion”, their warp and their weft is woven with instinctive colour, they don’t obviously sound like anything or anyone, their tactile awareness glows in a deliciously warm way, you don’t need out words, here they are with a just released album that you can find via their Bandcamp page
Waterman Fragment are a two piece, Arthur Waterman : galling fetters :: invocations :: warp, Anaximander Fragment : lumber saws :: apeiron :: weft and actually they’re not jsut from Boston, they say they’re a “bi-coastal experimental recording project headed by Anaximander Fragment (Santa Monica, CA) and me (Boston, MA). We are long-time skronk/noise/underground artists who began recording together in the early 90’s lo-fi/noise scene in Northern Connecticut. Our self-titled album, and our first LP under the name Waterman Fragment, is a nine-song excursion into our shared aesthetic honed to its purest form. No-wave noise, dark primitive dance rhythms, aggressive post-punk, and even indie pop are all drawn into our DIY imagination and re-emerge transformed into a pure visionary strangeness. If nothing else we trust you’ll hear us as artists who, like the Organ, do it our own way.
