Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-04-08 
Quartet of percussionists, focusing not on trap drums but on various clanking objects: cymbals, pots, wooden chimes (see picture inside).

Some tracks develop a rhythm, for the feel of a primitive jam (1,5,8) ...
A few others come across as more cerebral and studied (like 3).

A nice change of pace, and not as dull as "all-percussion" might imply.

1- Suite: midtempo chugging rhythm, followed by a slow segment.
2- Duck calls! A short one.
3- Calm, lots of rustling
5- Strange gloopy noises, into tuneful marimba clanking.
6- Wind chimes, lots of rattling
7- Bird-call interlude
8- Fast tribal rhythms
9- Slow and quiet rhythm, like a trek through the desert
10- Fast drum jam, cool but short
11- Fast and metallic street jam; gets quiet
12- Mid/fast with some cool quiet sounds
13- Marimba madness! (except it's played on bowls)
14- Midtempo clacky rhythms
