Album Review

Floored By Four – “Chimera Music No. 4” – [Chimera Records]

humana   10/21/2010   A Library, CD

This debut release from these four talented musicians is fresh and characterized by attention-grabbing change-ups and phases, at least in the longer pieces.
1. Nels: Nels Cline opens the set with guitar skills that drive you forward almost to the point of disorientation, but it???s not an unpleasant feeling.
2. Yuka: Yuka Honda???s song opens bubbly with vibes and ends with psyche, and lots of rock with male vocals intervene.
3. Watt: Mike Watt???s song may be the shortest, but it showcases his stellar way with a bass guitar in this upbeat winner.
4. Dougie: Last but not least is the epic-length swirl of electronics, guitars, synths, and theremin-sounding music punctuated by Dougie Bownes??? fine drumming.
