Decomposed Orchestra is the guest backer on the new Alexander Tucker thing on Latitudes - he normally trades under his name Duke Garwood - and from the opening seconds i'm stunned at the combination of chamber minimalism & eerie meditative improv at work here. Tucker's precious voice lingers around briefly near the start but for the most part, it sounds on 'Golden Dome' like Free Jazz fighting with Terry Riley or at one juncture, desert Blues executed by Faust.... really cool....I'm shit at reviewing truly great improvisational music as you can't take the piss or compare it to loads of irrelevant, childish toss which I really rather like doing. This sounds like two massively talented musical firebrands having a right old passionate duel, the hairs on the nape of my neck are flexing & tweaking. There's loads of edgy drone, squawking sax and classic minimalist structures fighting for space here but you've gotta wait till over a minute into track three for our Alex to let his vocal chords overwhelm you as the music flutters, swoops & almost collapses under the weight of its beautiful dissonance & majesty. This track 'Grey Onion' - for that is what this mini album is called - is absolutely stunning, I assure you. Great collaboration for sure!! CD on Latitudes in the usual lovely package, vinyl to follow.......soon!
