NineWinds and Edgetone team up to release the latest release from Lords of Outland, a collective of like-minded musicians focusing on modern jazz, free jazz, and sound art. "Thee Uhip " explores the creative process and the art of the thematic.
"Romus' fiery romp is a no-holds barred exposition. He slices through steel with accuracy and ease, equating to a jovial soundscape, scraped with intensifying solos and Everett's colorific cymbals hits. They galvanize your neural system from start to finish, while projecting a take no prisoners approach throughout."
Thee Unhip where will we go? to the land of the unhip where cars are beasts beating on fingers of solid cement and concrete.
Every musical moment is a struggle long tireless days long winding stairs no love from audiences that talk loudly and pay only in shadowy smiles the days of work that turn into nights in far flung places playing long notes in warm sunridden bars where the rooftops are leaking.
In my sleep I dream notes that have no name...
- Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz
"On the flip side of growing pains, you’ve got plain old pains growing. Rent lances them with blazing sax, and on this release the crisp use of electronics sets things in stark relief... Stellar unions include “Sledge of the Hedge”, where it feels like contact triggers are launched on drum strikes, but it ends up with a smoldering finish over static sparks."
- Thurston Hunger, KFJC on-Line Reviews
"There’s plenty of gristle in this group to begin with, and the electronics spin them off balance and into utterly bizarre realms." KZSU, Zookeeper Online
All in all Interesting stuff from these pioneers."
- DM, Vital Weekly
"There is lots of action, and some of it is truly stirring, but I just couldn't quite get my head around everything."
-Aiding & Abetting
