Many many thanks to Avant Music News for including Orca, Attack!’s weird little faux-educational-musical-dispatch C.M.S.O. (with Strategic Tape Reserve and David Rodriguez) with the Best of 2021! See the full list, plus honorable mentions, on the AMN website.
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.
