If there was any doubt that Mats Gustafsson had the required talent to work alongside a jazz band with math-rock leanings (and therefore, constricted to a measure) while retaining the freedom of his intense sax delivery, How To Raise An Ox single-handedly dissipates them all. This incredible collaboration shows the best of Zu in terms of math-rock and free improvisation while leaving enough space for Gustafsson's short and energetic sax outbursts, complimenting without overshadowing the Italian collective.
Heavy & Experimental Music in general, Movies, Upcoming Shows, personal stuff, and anything I find interesting will be posted here. Taking requests too (comment box down below).
The name of the blog comes from the Nurse With Wound album's subtitle, Shipwreck Radio Vol 1 and 2 (Seven Sonic Structures of Utvær and Eight Enigmatic Structures of Utvær), it's also a small inhabited Norwegian island located to the northwest of the country, in the municipality of Solund.
In most cases I'll provide the best as possible quality I can get, along with a link to order the album(s). Always remember to support the music you enjoy.
