descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The 7th LP from legendary avant-prog unit, Upsilon Acrux! Upsilon Acrux will pillage your stereo field, butting coruscating, contradictory lines of unequal measure against explosive percussion, compelling resolutions, and intricate melodies. Boasting a revamped lineup of dual drums, dual guitars, and Fender Rhodes, the group delivers a massively propulsive, wildly asymmetric takedown of conventional rock structure. Heralded for their "paradoxical mix of intricacy and immediacy" by PopMatters, virtuoso guitarist Nels Cline once noted that "Upsilon Acrux makes some of the most detailed compositions I have ever heard." Longtime fixtures of the Los Angeles experimental music community, their approach to instrumental rock music is unique, stellar, and sweeping. These sounds are burning, stoked by angularity, mania, and profound mastery of the balance between beauty, tension and release.

Like a blossoming, expansive cult, Upsilon Acrux have had roughly twenty different members work and play in eleven different iterations of the ensemble, of which seven have made records. The band maximizes the impact of its present configuration by dividing and deconstructing its lines, passing rhythms and melodic fragments through its rank. Even at their most brutal and challenging, the music is elegant, with each member working in tandem to realize and articulate bafflingly complex gestures with fluidity. The record was tracked at Infrasonic in Alhambra, CA, with overdubs recorded in the so-called "Appetite for Destruction" room at the storied Record Plant in Hollywood.

Despite having shared the stage with a diverse range of noteworthy and fantastic groups, including the Locust, Dillinger Escape Plan, Blonde Redhead, Yowie, the Peter Brotzmann Quartet, Man is the Bastard, Cheer Accident, Zs, The Fucking Champs, Henry Kaiser, Don Caballero, Child Abuse, Ruins, the Flying Luttenbachers, and many others- Upsilon Acrux make and destroy cities in the time it takes most bands to cross the street for coffee."-New Atlantis

Also available on vinyl LP.
