Following in the footsteps of a highly productive 2018, Shorter Flagpoles continues the meta-political work of Peter J. Wood by critically responding to the current moment both at a structural and individual level. Aesthetically, the work fits right in with PJW's recent output: heavy drones, destroyed text, harsh blasts, and long silences fill both sides of this tape to create an unsettling affect. Includes studio versions of the sets performed during the 2018 tour with Gerritt Wittmer and the 2019 tour with Christopher Burns.

I cannot praise this album enough. This album is absolutely terrifying! The many starts and stops creates this very h settling tension. Each start expands on the stopper idea previously. It’s like the music equivalent of walking through thick fog while passing out multiple times throughout trying to find a place to orientate yourself. There may or may not be something sinister in that fog, but you don’t want to stick around to find out. Bought the vinyl so I summon the fog demons through spe showhornwithteeth
