Now this is glorious, this is indeed something very special, don’t take my word tof it though, here, read this, “check out this insane video and album by Oort Smog and made by the incredible Dylan Pecora, recorded by our guy and best engineer in the world Daniel Zaidenstadt featuring Upsilon Acrux members Patrick Shiroishi and Mark Kimbrell, if u enjoy music that takes a journey, if u are of the mindset that music can change u , well here it is…” so said yet man Paul Lai from the recentlu born again Upsalon Acrux. And well, here it nearly is, becasue of the eway they have it set up, you need to use the link and head to You Tube, it is workth half an hour f your time though, it really really is. The track is from rom the album, Every Motherfucker Is Your Brother, available November 11th, 2022 on AKP Recordings
“Oort Smog aims to continue the sax-drum duo tradition, inspired by early formations such as John Coltrane and Rashied Ali and continued through the years by Anthony Braxton & Andrew Cyrille, Sax Ruins & Dead Neanderthals. Mark Kimbrell and Patrick Shiroishi combine elements of brutal prog (both are members in Upsilon Acrux) and free improvisation in their long form composition Every Motherfucker is Your Brother. Written over the course of eighteen months and recorded during the pandemic/George Floyd & Breonna Taylor protests, Oort Smog drew from a number of influences to create their own sound – one of urgency, heaviness, and hope. EMIYB is the band’s second offering, continuing the complexities of their first record, a hybrid of tightly arranged changes and free jazz improvisation. Daniel Zaidenstadt returns as engineer to help sculpt the sonics, blending and fully utilizing the space of Human Resources to its fullest potential”.
The duo do have a couple of tastes of the new album up on Bandcamp right now
Every Mother is the band’s second offering, continuing the complexities of their first record, a hybrid of tightly arranged changes and free jazz improvisation.
