Deep and useful stuff. Sample all tracks and purchase the CD at CD Baby.
Finally, here's a pic of Stratospheerius, the "full-on electro-fiddle-trip-funk" band whose CD I reviewed back in July. They rocked the legendary Bitter End last night with an all-too-short early set.
It's good to know that some things, like the Bitter End's tiny bathrooms, never change. But electric six-string violinist Joe Deninzon (who was born in St. Petersburg, Russia) leads this most excellent band through some serious rhythmic changes. Is it prog-rock? Jazz fusion? A jam band? Ask the portraits of Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell on the walls, I don't know. A little of each maybe. All I know is it's kickass. They closed the set with the instrumental "Heavy Shtettle II: Heavier Shtettle." I said kickass, right?
Here's a bonus shot of drummer Lucianna Padmore in action. She is an even more awesome musician in person than on CD.
