WHAT WE WON’T SEE
Chris Smentkowski has been a pillar in St. Louis’ experimental music community for more than a decade now. During his tenure in the legendary experimental unit Brain Transplant, Smentkowski mastered both guitar and laptop noise in an unrelenting bout of electric nihilism. With his new drum-machine-driven project, What We Won’t See, Smentkowski brandishes his virulent guitar approach with Scott Tallent on electric bass and vocals. The Scratch Acid and Big Black comparisons are inevitable as Tallent’s throbbing post-punk bass writhes toward the cold beat of automation. Not unlike his Touch & Go forebears, Smentkowski has the ability to tame feedback into a textural weapon, subdued one moment and laying electric waste the next. Combining the disgruntled bark of Tallent’s vocals with the atmospheric swirl of Smentkowski’s blackened guitar phrases, What We Won’t See produces a bleak soundtrack to a working-class world gone wrong.’
