A fantastic, dynamic release by the duo of multimedia artist Bettina Schroeder on electric ukelele, lap steel and effects and Tony Irving (Cyclone Trio, Ascension) on drums. A fiery and ever shifting collision of ideas and quick thinking, with a sound-world that is parallel to No Wave, whilst being amorphous, fleet of foot and loose limbed. Not easily placed in any one genre cupboard. Recorded with characteristic clarity and punch at Tigersonic’s studio in London, and mastered in Alchemix Studios in Brisbane – this is an aural delight and at just short of an hour in length does not overstay its welcome. Released as a cassette in an orange shell, with full colour artwork by Schroeder and a download with a PDF booklet of notes, biogs and more artwork.
To be featured on World of Jazz 447 on July 25th
