Starting off with some blurpy synthy noises, a few organ clusters, and a rhythm trying to find itself, this track might leave a listener wondering where it's all leading—if, in fact, a deconstruction is in progress. What's left to pull apart? Surprisingly, the barely organized sounds coalesce into a fiercely swinging, rising chromatic workout. Brian Charette is a monster on the organ, and Jochen Rueckert's drums complete the vibe. I'm usually a big fan of descents into chaos, but this "anti-madness" is a load of fun.
