JÜ – Summa (2017)

jü

“Jü plays the music of ecstasy.
Psychedelic noise rock, power-jazz and folk all form an integral part of their compositions, evolving from seemingly rigorous, repetitive swirling patterns that deliver spectacular amounts of energy.
Apart from obvious reminiscences of the golden age of fusion (late 60s, early 70s), Jü’s main objective is far from evoking that era.
By pushing their instruments to new limits, entranced audiences are transported from the continuous present into the future, ideally, leaving behind past ways of thinking about music itself.
Despite being seemingly restrained by their strict form of composition, disciplined by the common ground of tonality and dynamics, the creative members of the trio are allowed plenty of room for spirited improvisation.” (translated from Hungarian) Barotányi Zoltán / Magyar Narancs Source

nose

“Sunwatchers are a New York-based ensemble (featuring current & former members of NYMPH, Dark Meat, Chris Forsyth’s Solar Motel Band & Arthur Doyle’s New Quiet Screamers) that blur the lines between avant-jazz, punk, psychedelia, Ethio-jazz and desert blues, creating joyous, chaotic, mystical elegies to modern sound. Their eponymous 2016 album was released on Castle Face Records in 2016, and the band will release their Trouble In Mind debut, “II” on February 2nd, 2018.”Source
