Daniel Spicer’s joint review of The Thirteenth Assembly‘s (un)sentimental (Important Records) and Mary Halvorson and Jessica Pavone‘s Thin Air (Thirsty Ear) appears in the May 2009 issue of The Wire.

Spicer notes The Thirteenth Assembly’s “diverse, often surprising compositions,” “mischievous good humour,” and “moments when the music transcends genre.”

He also highlights the duo’s “compelling musicianship” and Halvorson’s “impressive timbral palette ranging from fierce, taut scribbles to subtle smears of effects.”

“It easily confirms her position as one of the most relentlessly inventive guitarists working in creative music today,” he adds.
