Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2007-02-11 
Free-jazz lineup of vibes, bass and two drummers, frequently groove-oriented. It's got a nice dry snap of a beat, and it really cooks when they get going (3). You've also got lots of floaty, electronics-laden improvs, abstract stuff that didn't convince me; it feels like directionless stalling (5,6). Gets a thumbs-up overall, but their sound needs work.

1- Strange swirl of electronics
2- Fast, a nice little beat that gets tuneful
3- Four minutes of active, compelling improv, into a really nice mid/fast groove.
4- Groove continues, then lightly roaring sounds
5- Rock-minimalist? A fast beat with slow guitar-like buzz, after a light noise intro. Then some sampled TV(?) that gets dull.
6- Thick with quiet electronics, kind of a loose beat.
7- Sharp and pounding
8- Floaty vibes, a nice wind-up to track 9
9- Active, pulsing beat
