Boomkat Product Review:
For this new Latitudes release All Tomorrow's Parties mainstay Alexander Tucker joins forces with Dean Garwood, resulting in three terrific stretched out jams. Perhaps it's got something to do with the fusion of prog influences with jazz and psychedelia, but stretches of this bring to mind the Canterbury scene of the '60s and '70s from which Robert Wyatt and Soft Machine came to prominence. 'Golden Dome' slips into a bluesy cello riff (if that's not too much of a contradiction in terms) that loops in a gutsy, predatory fashion while Garwood lays down vocals and roving sax leads. It's a very rhythmic piece and you can well imagine how this might be constructed live via loop pedals, building up the layers. Taking on a more abstract character is 'Algae Age', a kind of drone piece that incorporates more soloing from Garwood. Here, Tucker constructs a bedrock of sustaining textures, allowing languid reed passages to carve out slippery melodic motifs above. For the final part of the session, 'Grey Onion', there's a more pronouncedly song-like structure at work, with vocals featuring prominently alongside Tucker's descending chromatic riffs. Following on from the recent Mount Eerie release, Tucker's excellent session completes a great end to the year for Latitudes - recommended.
