Album Review
David McWade
Reviewed 2007-10-11 
Improv, experimental jams of various styles. The artist is KZSU dj David Bug. Most tracks are very long and they all sound different (often with changes within songs), the improv theme is what holds them together (and it appears to have been recorded live in-studio). The artist clearly has a great deal of range and skill.

Start with 2, 5

1 Lo-fi, fuzzy noisy indie rock jam

2 Excellent, celestial and twisted classical sounds like Legendary Pink Dots circa 'Asylum' (or earlier) meets Robert Rich circa 'Calling Down The Sky'. Worth the length. My only complaint is that the astrologers consider Saturn to be a 'bad planet'

3 Long, jammy, drums and electronic noises, evolving, good

4 A lot of changes: starts echoic celestial, compendium of different types of synths and instruments (strings and horns, etc.) Then with about 10 minutes left gets darker, pensive, and more industrial-ish, later gets sparse. The last 5 minutes are very nice, makes me think of MIMIR.

5 Starts minimal, gets kind of intense, chaotic modern, dissonant classical with piano mixed with electronic sounds with about 6:30 left, brilliant and pretty. Haunting voices, minimalism, more dissonant chaos.
