Avant jazz hipsters improvise. Drum, sax, guitar, and drone. All good! Tracks runtogether.

1.Long intro then sax on the nod, free jazz on Quaaludes with frantic drums, bent guitar
2.post-rock. The fast minor-key guitar strumming’s like flamenco.
3.drum malaise, gets noisy then pure
4.long wails on the sax while the other members rumble
5.playing with echo, nice and melodic, like an old obscure Factory record
6.slow looped beat, minimal, sparse melodic squaks, mild guitar playing
7.swinging, is this ¾?
8.sneaky and melodic
9.introspective guitar & ringing drone
