Jandek ‎– "Not Hunting For Meaning" (Corwood Industries ‎– Corwood 0797) 2009


Jandek's difficult 59th album, or could this be called an EP?
I like the title a lot.Hunting for meaning is the main cause of human misery in my book.Accept your situation like Jandek obviously does, and you will become happier. Nihilism can bring one peace if you, or society, allows it. Find comfort in the meaninglessness of existence.Its like this because IT IS....more philosophically referred to as the Anthropic Principle, if you wanna get fancy about it?
Music-wise,if 'Music' is an appropriate adjective for this aural torture? The 'Corwood Representative' treats us to more untuned solo acoustic guitar and wolf like vocals that sound like he's shitting broken glass. The guitar sounds almost in tune on this one, but I wouldn't hunt for any meaning beyond expressions of Isolation, grief, and emotional torment.
Pop this on at your party when you want the fuckers to leave.
That's what the 'Front porch Shimmy' is I suggest?


1 Front Porch Shimmy 4:10

3 Silent Wander 29:23
