To And From Concentrate

(Sillybird) Used LP $8.00

The one and only LP by this mid-90s Oakland trio rewrites chaos theory as we know it. Are you on the cutting edge of physics or not, asshole? “To and From Concentrate is a dissonant barrage of guitars jangling on the backbeat, arrhythmic bass lines loping and clambering through myriad time signatures, and drums switching meters at the drop of a high hat,” says the Bay Guardian. “The album's six tracks -- each one clocking in at exactly seven minutes and six seconds -- are exercises in endless displacement; instruments join for an instant, then scamper in divergent directions, dropping in at one beat and out the next. Vocals add to the din with syncopated cantos of blank verse about high school cheers.”
