Boomkat Product Review:
Apparently, the Hat City Intuitive are regulars on the Danbury, Connecticut free improv circuit, although the ramifications of such a statement are probably largely unknown to anyone who doesn't live in Danbury, Connecticut. Here's a (Wikipedia derived) fact for you: this Danbury place used to produce one quarter of all America's hat supply (seriously), hence it acquiring the nickname, Hat City. The band, as is featured on this album, includes such curiously monikered personnel as Sax Blabbath and Sunday Ra, but perhaps more notably, Thurston Moore crops up, laying down some guitar tyranny alongside his elder brother Gene Moore who switches between guitar and reeds. The record never seems to let up, melting together wild amplified scrawl, dissonant horns and creaky, teeth rattling percussion in a fashion that really defies any sort of alignment with jazz. It uses many of the same instruments and calls upon similar principles of free-improv, but there's something absolutely raw and punk-ish about the tone of these recordings. Especially good is last track 'Midwives Remain Salty' which opens up some dissonant string tinkering that's less frenzied but possibly even more angular and bizarre. Excellent.
