White People Killed Them – White People Killed Them (SIGE, LP/digital)

White People Killed Them is a collaborative project between Deerhoof guitarist John Dietrich, drummer Marshall Trammell and composer Raven Chacon. Their self-titled debut album was recorded in New Mexico in 2019 and offers a wonderfully confrontational chaos of sound over just under 43 minutes. Freer than free jazz, more determined than many takes on improv music, more noisy than any harsh-noise tape, it’s an album that was not necessarily to be expected from these three musicians and is all the more welcome for exactly that reason.
