This Chicago trio plays an intoxicating mix of dense, lurching dub and funk, switching rhythmic gears often enough to keep things both dangerous and hypnotic. This is dub beamed through a prism of Rough Trade-style post-punk, with bassist Wayne Montana (formerly of Trenchmouth) shining in a starring role. The stand-out here is "The Origin of the Heatray," an unsettling piece featuring keyboardist Damon Locks's melodica, sounding like a lone voice of outrage and reason in a maelstrom of chaos.
