Kimmo Pohjonen working together with King Crimson's rhythm section, you can't go wrong there. All three wizard in their own field. A guitar that does not sound like a guitar. An accordion that sounds like an organ once, like a bagpipe next. And as accordion, too.
After an ambient opening, staccato rhythms come head-on. This sets the mood for the album with four tracks penned by Pohjonen, the rest between the band. Some have politely distorted guitar, Wasabi Fields is laid-back and Jacaranda sounds like KC from Discipline-years; a field-day for Pat Mastelotto. The closing Snow Reader is nearly ambient again. And in between is everything from sonic attacks to even experimental, but mostly an up-tempo mix, all carrying the same signature. Incredible and original stuff!
