Album Review

Tiger Asylum Records [coll] – [Tiger Asylum]

mickeyslim   3/21/2012   A Library, CD

Some very different things on this collection from Tiger Asylum records. 15 different bands execute some form of improvisational experimentation. Ranging from brass ensembles to full force free-jazz to soulful spoken word (of which I am migthy fond.) Includes tracks by Ben Miller of Destroy all Monsters solo work and work in Push-Pull Orchestra. Mothguts and Herb Robertson blow my mind away with their punch in the face jazz explosion. We also hear the words of Ra Washington, who performs his own poetry on one track and has a woman read it on the second. Wish we had more of this guy. Khouri/Soderberg (A library) make quasi-soothing electronic space warbles. Chris Welcome is a slow, heavy stepping, free moving drunken haze in front of a bar just before last call. Lots of cool stuff on here, something for everybody, play before time runs out!

Oh yeah, there???s some cursing and shit on track two..
