AllMusic Review by

Versatile downtown New York percussionists Christine Bard, Michael Evans, and Jim Pugliese use found objects, traditional percussion instruments, and electronic effects to create a live (no overdubs) album that moves through myriad environments and styles. Their offerings span from "Freak Funk"'s wide grooves to the traditional, Far East-reminiscent quiet and water-immersed chimes of "Water Mirage," which is followed by a track that imitates the falling of rain or "Fresh Tears." With pieces ranging from 13 seconds to over 6 minutes, there are many moments of interest and beauty among these rhythm and timbre journeys. EasSide Percussion's self-titled debut is definitely recommended for fans of the eclectic.
