"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Wednesday, August 24th, 6am - 9am: Rhyton
Drawing from psychedelic rock, roots musics of many stripes, and modernist soundscapes, Rhyton explore new tunings and juxtapose country rock against synthetic “alien” sounds. Their new record 'Redshift' shows this adroit trio taking it to the limit and defying expectations with the transformational ability of turning a Joe Walsh guitar line into a bagpipe. Their shared love for Greek folk instrumentation, Alembic bass slap, and Pretty Purdy grooves recently required a music journalist to stretch too hard in describing their sound as Interstellar, No-Wave Cop Show Music. New record is on Thrill Jockey, they are touring east of the Mississippi in August.
