New Hymn To Freedom
the leaf label
A second mesmerising set of groove-laden, cosmic, electronic, psychedelic, jazz explorations from this astonishing trio.
When electronic producer / analogue synth nerd Luke Abbott, saxophonist Jack Wyllie from Portico Quartet and Aussie composer/percussionist Laurence Pike of PVT come together, something extraordinary occurs. Free-form improvisations often have a tendency to go off on sprawling tangents, testing commitment and losing impact. That’s certainly not the case here though. Despite the free and loose energy, ‘New Hymn To Freedom’ remains tightly wound and not a second too indulgent. If you like your trippy electronica beats with a healthy dose of jazz adventuring and some serious space-drone jams, or your trippy space jams with a healthy dose of drone-electronica adventuring and some serious jazz beats, then come join us in the house of the rising Szun!

"[track 'Constellation'] never loses sight of its original motifs, but it becomes wrapped in so many strands of saxophone and percussion that by the end, the song seems to explode, leaving glittering bits of stardust to settle in the atmosphere." - pitchfork
