's always got sounds that hold our attention – but he's almost even more compelling than usual here, in the company of drummer Paul Lytton
– whose approach makes for a record that really bristles with invention! Lytton
's got an approach to the kit that's a bit like some of his electronics – crisp and crackly, with these continued bursts that really charge up the tunes – leading Wooley
's trumpet to equally staccato expressions. The bass of Christian Weber
holds the whole thing together, with kind of a gentle undercurrent at times – and titles include "La Grande Mort", "Nickel Eyes", "Moribund", and "Pushing Up Daisies".
