This is the first full-length CD release by Norwegian noise artist Andreas Brandal. He has been making music with various bands and projects since the late 80's and released a several 7" and LPs on famous Norwegian label Smalltown Supersound as solo artist, as well as a participant of improv-noise duo Larmoyant. "Drive Home With A Hammer" is not "just another noise record". Once you hear it, you will be unexpectedly surprised by unique sense of Andreas in manipulating with interesting close-to-recognise sounds. His skills in working with macro/micro audio-events helps him to create the powerfull and impressive audio work using both vintage analogue equipment and modern computer tools. There is the smallest audio element that can indicate the way to the hidden layers and perspectives in sound. The album sounds very deep, organic and "analogue", because of hisses, brutal tape loops and "glitches" are the constant "ingredients" of Andreas output. The structure of tracks is clear and irregular at the same time, the music flows freely, but not quiet, because it is created with both composition and improvisation methods.
