Snares of Sixes - "Yeast Mother: An Electroacoustic Mass" . hat it’s like the experimental pieces of The Frankenstein Brothers, interjected with the oddly-reckless metal portions of Fantômas, and the twisted sense of humor and dance-ability found in Purr Bats-this. group is mind-blowingly awesome.
Yeast Mother scratched an insidious and pervasive itch for me, Walton explains. In many ways this is an album I have been striving to make since my high school years. Once I fell in love with challenging and confounding music, I have created many vehicles to try to replicate the feeling of awe this form of music inspired in me. Especially Likely Sloth, Nothing and Self Spiller were all created to satisfy this craving. With Yeast Mother, I believe I have finally reached that goal.
Initially slated be a full-length album, Walton realized that he complexity and density of the material encourages listening in small dosage, and SNARES OF SIXES’ Yeast Mother: An Electroacoustic Mass EP was finalized.
With Snares of Sixes, he manipulates them in the service of an art-rock album you would not be too embarrassed to show your sexual partner. Guests include but are not limited to someone from Musk Ox and someone from Winds and someone from Dolven and someone also from Sculptured. The result, which may or may not follow logically from that list of associations, is a four-track EP containing more twists and turns than most musicians complete in an entire career.

Yeast Mother: An Electroacoustic Mass. Even only at four tracks, it is not surprising that it took Jason Walton five years to make this first Snares of Sixes album. It’s not even because of his more pressing obligations with Self Spiller and the recently defunct Agalloch, although that busy schedule probably played a part. No, it’s that the sort of bugged-out avant-prog he’s built this latest project around isn’t the kind of expression that happens overnight.
