Now for some Austrian free-post-classical-rock-jazz. Oh yeah baby. You know you want it. Right in yer ears, all the way. Easy does it! There! How do you feel? What? Your blinking brain hurts? Oh dear, I think I pushed it in too far. Now let's see, if I can just ease it out a tad.....there we go! How's that? Better you say? You like the violin? Why, that's wonderful! The piano sounds divine & the subtle electronics work well in conjunction with the left-of-field time signatures? Ah yes, that's what I was thinking! It sometimes sounds like Tortoise except sporting a huge eccentric muso beret? Aye, that it does. Definitely even more avant-garde than that though, wouldn't you say? I think they're proper mad jazzers, these lot, to be honest - very good players but rather.......what you say? "Full of themselves?" Yes, rather! I kind of want to leave here as I feel the first itchings of a massive beard beginning to sprout on my face but i'm intrigued & comfortable enough with the experimental nature of this intimate four piece & their strange, progressive musical brew to want to remain seated & soak up the "vibe" How about you? Ah, you want to stay too! Let's get an large espresso each & some quality smack in then. I feel that may help things along....
