Trouble In Mind

This quartet continues to defy adequate description, incorporating elements of free jazz, psychedelia, punk, Ethiopian and Thai music and funk into a dizzy, invigorating sound. “II” kicks off with the click of sticks and launches into “Nosebeers”, a righteous burner that writhes and squawks with heady desert vibes and white hot saxophone, sounding not unlike something akin to Group Doueh jamming with John Zorn. “The Hot Eye” is next, and the band doesn’t let up revving up an anxious marching beat into a raging squall that ebbs & flows with tidal waves of horn and guitar. The band has more in store for listeners, easing into the third track “There Are Weapons You Can Bring To School”. With it ’s contemplative tone, the song sets a mood for the album, righteous, socially conscious messaging, no more evident than the message embriodered onto the tapestry that graces the front cover artwork: “SUNWATCHERS STAND IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE DISPOSSESSED, IMPOVERISHED AND EMBATTLED PEOPLE OF THE WORLD”.
