Boomkat Product Review:
Described by Jim O'Rourke as "the rhythm section's revenge", On Fillmore is the duo of Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche and bass player Darin Gray of Dazzling Killmen, Brise-Glace and Yona-Kit. The two musicians have previously played together on O'Rourke classics Eureka, Halfway To A Threeway and Insignificance before recording as a duo for Drag City. Extended Vacation finds On Fillmore moving to the up-and-coming Dead Oceans imprint, concocting a very strange slice of exotica via vibraphone, upright bass, field recordings and angular percussion. This unusual electroacoustic easy-jazz seems like an odd channel for such brilliant players' talents, but geting beyond the bird calls and slinky tuned percussion this is an extremely accomplished and cinematic body of work.
