Lean Left

Lean Left throws together two explosive duos - the sax/drums collision course of Ken Vandermark and Paal Nilsson-Love with the piledriving guitarists from The Ex - to make up a positively apocalyptic quartet: an elemental musical force featuring Grade A international players zoning in and scrambling together rock, jazz, noise and blistering free improv into a highly-charged onstage assault, each member taking their sounds and bodies to the edge and often snapping out of the wilds and into glorious passages of regular rhythm.

The Young Mothers

LAST AVAILABLE DATES: October 8, 9 and 10, 2017

"The Young Mothers second release 'Mother Dearest' (a loving protest album) is recorded and produced at the legendary Sugar Hill Recording Studios in Houston Texas (Lightnin' Hopkins, Beyoncé). A Hip Hop, Punk, and Afrobeat influenced Free Jazz album by a band that's fully aware of the musically and politically necessities of these times; the album is collaboratively composed and pulling all of the bands influences together. This is what Jazz means to me in this time and age." - Ingebrigt Håker Flaten

Shipp, Lehn & Butcher

"What is remarkable about Tangle is that it isn't exactly a "tangle": the distinctions in the musicians' approaches instead invite a kind of independence of listening (akin to the independence of hands and feet practiced by a trap drummer) in which we follow parts singly, in pairs and as three (or sometimes more depending on the scale of individual activity). The experience is then all the more remarkable when there is evidently intentional interaction among the parts. We're invited to a benevolent conception of time in which it is conceived as both static and dynamic, both still and moving, like time experienced as two places at once.
The final brief track is called "Tiefenschärfe" ("depth of field"), the title suggesting just how we might approach this remarkable music. Butcher's playing at the outset is as lyrical as Stan Getz."

Stuart Broomer. Point of Departure.

http://www.pointofdeparture.org/PoD57/PoD57Ezz-thetics.html

 

The combination of personalities is winningly combustible. The rhythmic push and pull between Butcher, Shipp and Lehn is a delight, with all three conjuring up graciously dissonant figures whose frequent crisscrossing gives the music a kaleidoscopic character. All of the players are drumming with razor sharp focus, but they also have more serene impulses and create glistening soundscapes in which the analogue keyboard is well complemented by the two acoustic instruments that are inspired to match the strange and beautiful noise that fills the air. Music with an on-the-edge intensity that is nonetheless handled with considerable rigour and attention to detail.

DUOT & ANDY MOOR "Food"

 

You are a duo, until one day you suddenly become an augmented duo. Not with some other thing, but with someone else. And you're not any ordinary duo: you are Duot. You've been a stalwart of the Spanish jazz scene for over a decade, nonstop. No safety net. Just your instruments and yourselves. It was a possibility and you did it. And you still continue: you've kept your own voice and demonstrated that in Spain you can leave music school and concentrate on your career in free improvisation in general, as well as constructing a discourse of your own in particular. ?That's where personality gets constructed, yes, the only place where intuition develops that allows you to interact in a context of freedom, both unprotected and exposed: the raw, inclement, ruthless stage. There are evenings when the clubs are packed; likewise there are nights when only a couple of spectators are there before you. You play and you play, and you keep on searching, without knowing precisely where you're going, nor where your ?nal destination is. Only one thing is for sure: the exact path is paved when the duo, Albert Cirera and Ramon Prats, rise above the convergence of their ideas and their sounds. !Then, one day, Duot joins Andy Moor, and they are no longer a duo. They are something else. Bigger, stronger, richer. It's as if your music had always been a crossroads that someday had to converge to provide some different meaning. Moor is a universe unto himself, both with The Ex and with his dozens of projects and musical adventures, and his encounter with Duot is a controlled explosion of in?uences, lineups, and disparate ages; yet you resonate together in the same frequency, nonetheless. ?This is a disc to be listened to with your eyes closed, insulating your consciousness so that nothing else can enter, and also so that nothing goes unnoticed: not a single note, nor sound, nor the faint echo of the last whisper at the end of each track. !The music contained in Food is stunningly sincere. Cirera, Prats, and Moor speak the same language, their own, which is not that of Duot with a guest, but that of a trio. Though newly born, they express themselves as a singular force that, between them, brings decades of experience. Something seductive and magni?cent has been captured here, and Duot now feels the overwhelming need to share it on those same terms.

Phicus

Phicus is a trio from Barcelona composed of Ferran Fages (electric guitar), Àlex Reviriego (double bass) and Vasco Trilla (drums).

They speculate with silence, pull the noise out of joint, rearrange the timbre, scrap the tradition to explore their very own harmonic universe forged of the energy of a blazing forest into flame, where solely simple, lanceolate, obverse-shining leaves remain alive. 

 

If you ask about genre associations, a day is not enough to point them all. Thus, to mention only the least mistaken ones – meditations without compositional structure, Velvet Underground with aesthetic colloquialism at the back of the mind, the taste of the early Sonic Youth, and finally… what would happen if Keiji Haino met the noble man of AMM in the dark corner of Robadors square.
