Boomkat Product Review:
Geoff Farina was the founder of crucial early 90s indie outfit Karate, yet since then he’s widened his horizons a little playing with some of the free jazz scene’s most interesting players. Here he teams up with Ken Vandermark Trio bassist Nate Mcbride and drummer Luther Gray to make some very good noise. Of course Farina takes care of the guitar, which already makes this more interesting than your usual free-jazz horn led fare, and he places his textures and feedback sheets over some quite phenomenal percussion and bass. In parts this reminds me of Tortoise of course, since they were always flirting with jazz form and jazz sound, but ‘Almanac; is more progressive than that, more ‘out there’ and more willing to go to places Tortoise probably never dared. This isn’t a pop cd, there’s no short, sweet tracks to hook you in, rather this is a record which needs to be heard from beginning to end, you need to give it your time and let it drift over towards you. If you miss the days when jazzy post rock filled the local indie shelves then this album is without a doubt for you. Highly recommended.
