BEATS AND SAINTS
exploring the relationship between rhythm and melody, this portland quartet turn the connection between pulse and phase inside out, on a set that reminds us of badbadnotgood and angelo badalamenti’s twin peaks.
The record finds vibraphonist José Medeles, percussionist David Coniglio, trumpeter Josh Thomas, and guitarist Knate Carter in a loose, playful mode, interpreting songs by Charles Mingus, Björk, the Breeders, and Stereolab, alongside two new Ensemble originals. Melodic, surprising, and rhythmically dense.
