Hay, Emily / Dutz, Brad / Peet, Wayne – “Emily Hay / Brad Dutz / Wayne Peet ” – [Pfmentum]

Nice concoctions from these three. KFJC has enjoyed earlier pfMentum
releases under each’s name in the past. Dutz’s “When Manatees Attack”
is still slaying away in our recent adds. Wayne Peet’s B3 had plenty of
outer and “Inner Funkdom.” Here Peet is often on piano and in numbers
like “Filthy Washer” he’s laying down contemplative netting for Hay’s
windy flute to gust through. And on “Metamorphafasize” he’s again slow
and subtle, questioning the notes while Hay this time is taking her
flute through enhanced sample and sustain modes. She is just great on
this, kind of like a Kali Fasteau muse…so creative, and an element
of persistent playfulness, she plays her own funny bone at times for
some rhytmic laughing. She even gets some Shelley Hirsch-like bubbling
up vocals on tracks like “A Lotta T’s” and “It Can Be Thick.” The
former has some theremin courtesy of Peet, and the latter features the
B3!! The tracks with Peet on that organ, really sink my battleship in
the best way, something about it pumps up the energy. All tracks really
are gorgeous, no one oversteps anyone, Hay seems to be on point, but
that may be just the fate of the flute and vocals, higher register grabs
more immediate notice. Dutz is probably the secret weapon here, cool
gongs, congas, steel drums! Again the B3 worked best for me, I think it
has a heaviness that contrasts better with the flighty flute. I do dig
some of the effects (electronic and “natural”) that Hay gets out of her
flute. A mighty mighty release. Double kudos to Peet for excellent
engineering on this as well.
