This release from David Grubbs (SQUIRREL BAIT, BASTRO, GASTR DEL SOL, RED KRAYOLA) finds him twining together the diverse
strands of his vast interests. Working with Andrea Belfi (drums, electronics) and Stefano Pilia (guitar) creates a sympathetic groupthink for David. As in the days of
Gastr del Sol, songs float in idiosyncratic, exceptionally unhurried arrangements, featuring vocals on just 4 of the 11 tracks. The welcome return of his distinctive overdriven guitar tone is a highlight of the record. And C. SPENCER YEH (BURNING STAR CORE) plays some absolutely apeshit violin on two tracks.
Vinyl version.
