Amalgamated: s/t

Amalgamated: s/t

This curious CD was recorded back in 2004-2007 and mixed and mastered (by James Plotkin) years later. Some of it has crunchy, MBM-like breakbeats, and some of it is more solitary, minimalist mood excursions. “Borborygmus IX” is a softly throbbing piece filled with ominous piano, and “Unworm Ascending” is a subterranean bass guitar journey. Some of the tracks with dusty breakbeats remind me of The Grassy Knoll, which is a name I haven’t even thought of for years. This isn’t quite acid jazz, but it’s acid something.
