Free Improvisation

The Swedish multi-reed maestro turns to the relatively calm and linear world of Steve Lacy and finds a very happy medium. While he treats his inspiration's deadpan and deceptively simple melodies with clear respect, he also uses them as jumping off points for his own idiosyncratic deconstructions.

Alternative/Indie Rock

The second LP by the Brooklyn-based Elephant Six darlings offered a richer and more fully-realized take on their 60's-inspired pop which paired heady Left Banke and Fairport Convention-style ambitions with the lighthearted appeal of the Lovin' Spoonful.
