The coupling of these topics with abstract modern classical and electronics is unique as far as I can tell. And this degree of quirky novelty is certainly in line with Kelly’s previous release. After a few listens, I am not sure what I learned but I do feel a little smarter.
Many thanks to Avant Music News for including Orca, Attack!’s upcoming release, C.M.S.O., in their picks of the week alongside Caustic Reverie, Damon Locks / Black Monument Ensemble, Vertical Squirrels, and Arvind Ganga & Riccardo Marogna. Pre-orders for cassette or digital download are available from Strategic Tape Reserve’s Bandcamp or more digital options here, and the album releases on April 16.
