Just Sold Out!

CD

❔

We're not sure we know what "convulsionaries" are – but we can definitely say there's a skittish, twitchy approach to the way that Brandon Seabrook approaches his music – almost a sense of pulse gone out of control, which manifests itself in his unflaggingly unfurling angular lines on the guitar – and the great interplay he shares with the cello of Daniel Levin and bass of Henry Fraser! If you think you can guess the sound of the set, even after hearing the first few notes – then you'll quickly guess again – as the whole thing is explosively full of surprises, with so many tonal shifts and unusual moments of phrasing from all the players involved. Titles include "Mega Faunatic", "Groping At A Breakthrough", "Bovicidal", "Crux Accumulator", and "Vulgar Mortals".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
