SoCal based quintet that take us on an improv jazzy avant-garde experimental journey. Would be an amazing live performance I would have thought.

Like: Alan Sondheim, Rene Hall (LA Duo)
No FCC’s (Instrumentals)
Play all; although Part II may lose some listeners, the one’s who stay will surely thank you for it though.

1) Part I (7.31) Brooding creepiness that gives way to manic mayhem to conclude.
2) Part II (21.58) Flute based extravaganza to begin. Sounds like a group of poison dart hunters on the prowl, who then in turn get attacked by killer bees – All this while the piano is playing serenely on. It’s all over the place from then on, ranging from the fluttery to the frenzied. It’s not for the faint hearted. Last 35 seconds is barely audible.
3) Part III (8.44) Slow slimy start with various effects. Gains momentum about halfway with the piano & guitar taking over, then it takes on a more brooding seductive quality.
4) Part IV (5.49) Gritty & loud from the outset. A wall of noise with chains & indecipherable background spoken word (sort of Jesus And Mary Chain) A departure from the other tracks, last 2 minutes it breaks down to more of a chicken gargling with a chainsaw moment.
