Album Review

Reviewed 2014-04-17
Calm but noisy free jazz draped with theremin and electronics in the background. Even the fast/loud pieces have a meditative air. Sax and drums lead most tracks, with subtle French horn and less subtle guitar augmenting the sound sometimes, and continual electronics adding ambiance. Conveys free-jazz energy while staying purposely eerie and distant.

1- Hypnotic drone, into a free-jazz sax exploration over calm background.
2- Calm, metallic/glassy. Kind of 'futuristic'
3- Dark and heavy, although not loud. Ominous, w/bass-register humming and dire (but not loud) horn playing. Heavy drums that don't overpower.
4- Careful, drawn-out. Eerie guitar behind a slow sax line.
5- Fast tribal drum beat. Squirrely sax and, eventually, some distorted, grunting guitar.
6- Heavy on the eeriness. Abrasive long tones on horns, giving way to rickety theremin sounds and, later, some heated sax playing.
7- Meditative; sax almost like a wood flute, ceremonial sounding percussion. Slowish with a busy feel.
8- Tougher and dark: Metallic howls and radio-staticky noise
9- Starts spare; builds into fuzzy noise
10- Melodic and rhythmic, but still weird: Bubbly noise, harmonized horns, an odd pulsing rhythm.
