Modular Set – “Beached on the Half Landing ” – [Howell's Transmitter]

Abstract jazz-rock aided by electronics and loops. All instrumental, with guitar/keyboards/drums, a bit of violin, and a couple of horns in the mix too. Some sections reminded me of Iceburn’s grunginess, others of Soft Machine’s spacier moments. There is a big Crimson caveman guitar riff on #4, and a nice chugging beat on #7, other than that the playing seems mostly unstructured. Not particularly well-recorded. but then again I suspect this Bay Area band itself gets by with a lo-fi sound. I dug a lot of their ideas. Weird but worthy.
