"14 Years of Desperate Research" documents Good Willsmith's live performances from shortly after their formation in 2012. The album's two sessions showcase the band in a period of dense, metal- and noise-infused drone improvisation, predating their experiments with physical media sampling and extra-textual spoken word elements. "Documents that you don t understand" expands over trails of endless sustain and Max Allison's oscillator-derived low-end, conflating Natalie Chami's looped vocal mantras and Doug Kaplan's piercing guitar shred into a damaged high-end assault. On b-side "No one wants to end up with memory," Kaplan and Allison maintain minutes-long loops of squalling white noise and bass brutality as Chami's voice and synth leads weave through the accumulating layers.
