Boomkat Product Review
'Unreleased?' brings together the three members of Swedish supergroup, Fire! - Mats Gustafsson (The Thing), Johan Berthling (Tape), and 'Andreas Werlin (Wildbirds & Peacedrums) - for a second time, with an ultra special bonus addition of the peerless Jim O'Rourke, just to spice it up a bit. The session was recorded in Tokyo, September 2010, and steadily finds its groove through four tracks of captivating improvised psychedelic jazz. Groove is quite a key word here, with Johan Berthling's Electric Bass and Andreas Werlin's Drums and percussion forming a supple and driving backbone for Gustaffson and O'Rourke to cut loose in brilliantly controlled fashion, taking between twelve and nine minutes per track to reach refined yet heady heights. Ace.
