|Power free jazz: Loud. Aggressive sax, metal-derived guitar, loud drums, intense bass. Compositions bring the complication of prog/metal. The sax helps it sound like jazz, but the overblowing gets intense and raspy. When these guys play live, they *sweat*! I liked 2,4,7 best.|
|Ragnar of Ravensfjord|
Rockin’ jazz-prog quartet from NYC with some funny song titles. A bit of “Red”-era King Crimson, “Electric”-era Miles Davis and maybe even Soft Machine. At times they do get boring but in general this is has more quality moments than not. |
((((1)))) Guitar fuzz, plenty of sax and interesting time changes.
(((2))) Sorta funky yet very King Crimson-ish, gets pretty wild later on.
((((3)))) Playful, laid back, more straight-ahead jazzy with a few hints a rock & prog.
(((((4))))) Upbeat, proggy with a strange “Peanuts” (or really Vince Guaraldi) style to it.
(((5))) Nice, downtown jazzy style then gets too spazzy & busy to remain listenable.
(((6))) Twangy intro expands into a decent sax & drum driven tune.
(((((7))))) Swingin’, circular proggy jazz ‘ala Soft Machine then a klezmer section (didn’t see that coming by).
(((8))) Decent mix of modern indie rock guitar tone, prog and jazz-fusion. A little to repetitive though.
(((9))) Busy, with bunch of changes but often slow and just “there”.
((10)) More noodly jazz with guitar & random experimental horn bits, too improv-y and weird to really rise above the annoyance factor.
