West Hill Blast Quartet – “Blast #2” – [Foolproof Projects]
Out on Foolproof Projects, Ron Caines of East of Eden and Daniel Spicer provide the noisey aspects of this release, while Gus Garside lays down the broken-beat double-bass, and Andy Pyne of numerous Foolproof projects slams away on the drums.
All the weird instruments give the songs a certain depth, making it free-er than free-jazz. It’s fun, spacey, and loungey in acid-freakout kinda way.
Alto, tenor, soprano, and bamboo saxophones, melodica, whistles, shenai (double-reed oboe), melody harp, and more.
