The Collective Acoustics crew adds harpsichord, viol de gamba and prepared drum set to their usual mix of organs, synths, basses and percussion on this record that mixes sounds of the past and present to form a funkier future. The addition of guest musicians playing pedal steel, trombone, saxophones and even something called a buzzaphone, expands the group’s already dizzying atmospherics and gritty grooves. Recommended for the more adventurous listeners of electronica, jazz, and post-rock.
