Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2008-03-13 
Mix of free jazz and psych guitar in a multifaceted jam. Many tracks start off with a low-level burble of electronics, synth, and drums, a bit like experimental dance electronica. Then, the sax and trumpet come in for some free-jazz sounds often backed by a solid and ferocious drum beat. Some nutty guitar also adds a psych/fusiony kind of craziness. Great stuff with a fresh sound.

All tracks SEGUE, so watch beginnings and endings.

1- Low burble, somewhere between mellow and ominous
2- Psych groove, even a tad funky.
3- Fast dark jam
4- Low burble
5- Lonely horns, builds to an intense hovering jam
6- Medium-speed interlude, odd crunchy rhythm later
7- Crunchy rhythm continues w/cool-handed guitar solo
8- 24-second BLAST
9- Bass guitar groove, cool stuff
10- Groove continues (more complex), picks up a sax
11- Turns up the guitar heat after a quiet triplet rhythm
12- Solid triplet jam, after a wandering burble
13- Burning and nearly METAL! Easy, chugging start.
14- Lingering, with small breathy horn sounds
15- Fast, in a cooldown way, builds to explosive finale
