wooden wand and the vanishing voice Gipsy Freedom (double LP, £16.50)label: 5 Rue Christine
This is the sound of them combining their sound more fluently than ever before. Compensating for the relative dearth of wooden instruments this time around is guest star DANIEL CARTER. This is both their most confounding & rewarding release. You may hear faint echoes of Albert Ayler on one track, Iommi-derived riffage on the next, torch songs that sound torn straight from a Gershwin songbook on the next & Can style epic grooves on the next. The sound of a band breaking out of the box & using the discarded shapes to construct strange new universes.
