Album Review

Two female voices and drums. The context is abstract and experimental, but the drums often pick up enough beats and rhythms to call this "jazz," sort of. Vocals are wordless, sometimes toneless; it's more like language/sonics play than singing, or sound poetry, but often gets into some catchy spaces (6,10,11). At other times, it's like weird cartoony puppetry with insane puppets (4).

DB Boyko (voice), Christine Duncan (voice), Jean Martin (drums)

1- Lots of unusual voicings, drums build up nicely in the middle
2- Low-key vocals, into a steady drum beat. Ends in highfaluten, declaratory voices
3- Extended howl under fast babble, slow exotic tones, and a healthy drum beat
4- A nutso dialogue of cartoony sounds. Gets grumbly and mad.
5- Me/Mine words in interesting tones. Gets into Tuvan style growls. Dark.
6- A nice cadence, turns into a swingy drum beat
7- Galloping percussive sounds, into dry light patter. Later, almost laughing sounds, and cavewoman chant
8- Goofy cartoony sounds, rattly percussion
9- Medieval military march of the puppets
10- Cool drum patter, lotta "ing" sounds
11- Gets into a hearty tribal beat, catchy.
