The tricky-to-Google NYC noise band Aa (a/k/a Big A little a) have sent me three recordings I’ve enjoyed in the past couple years, none of which have titles on them. The first, from 2003, was an apparent demo CD with a pig lady teaching four monkey students with arrows in their quivers on the cover; the second, from 2004, was a 12-inch vinyl album with the same cover drawing but a different one on the back where arrows kill the pig and one of the monkeys exposes his nipples; the new one endorsed below (which has two tracks, the highly polyrhythmic and somewhat Pop Group-reminiscent first of which may be their best yet) is a CD whose white sleeve is affixed with a sketch of two women staring upward. They also tend to include several extraneous little paper drawings with their releases, but those are easy to throw away.
