Reviewed 2014-07-27
Psychedelic, long form, globally minded improvisations from the same circles of Sacramento musicians that produced San Kazakgascar. Classical styles from India and the Middle East, jazz, drone, and surf all abound here in a dynamic but meditative, humid stew. This should fit in nicely to shows featuring any of the above musical styles. All three pieces are excellent. No words, no FCCs.

1. (19:21)—Medium-slow, loping fusion of Indian classical music and jazz. Gets surfy halfway in, builds in the final third.
2. (17:24)—Slow, smooth, sultry, noirish, slightly dissonant, gains speed over time and gets especially jazzy, with a dramatic, free jazz final two minutes.
3. (19:06)—Begins with soft drone and tabla. Pushes forward quietly. Lots of soft percussion. Picks up suddenly at the halfway mark, edges toward rock (RIYL Yorgos + the Tangents!).
