descriptions, reviews, &c.

Anthony is a really tremendous improviser in Chicago who I first saw with this post-rock [for lack of any other reasonably descriptive term] group Binges that was just mind-blowing. Essentially a prog duo with an incredible mathy drummer that has a great feel named Chris Robert and Anthony playing bass, guitar, sax, tapes, effects and percussion all at once [one line on one instrument, change etc etc] so it sounded like a disturbed version of On The Corner-era Miles but without any goofy noise or fusion tropes at all -just completely solid music. He gave me this solo disc last year and it has been in heavy, heavy rotation. I'm thrilled to be able to release it and am excited that people are finally giving me stuff that has all the same values of the music on brokenresearch without it having the same sounds or mechanics. This track reminds me of some Pole/Merzbow hybrid kinda slowed and throwed. One of my faves on the label for sure.
