Quiet Life  Wild Pack
quiet life wildpack-300x300
(Mama Bird Recording Company)
This high-energy indie-folk band has done quite a bit of travelling, based locally in New London before moving to San Luis Obispo, California and finally Portland, Oregon. Opener “Record Time” captures that “on-the-road” blues feeling from the get-go, with an endless-highway rhythm for a “drive out to Ohio” concerning a mysteriously ended relationship. The song’s use of lap steel gives me a “surf rock” vibe, which is interesting considering the next track “Devil’s Kin” using a rumbling guitar and beat to capture an even more “surf” feel. Other tracks explore other elements of Americana as well, such as the slow-simmer country-blues “Come On, Come Back” prominently using a swelling organ that reminds me of New Orleans. “New London” gives the city a seven-minute tribute, with piano, harmonica and organ setting a nostalgic atmosphere for lyrics about boarded-up shops, a one-night stand and murder. Wild Pack is an enjoyably diverse album overall, and if you’re interested in seeing Quiet Life live, they’ll be at New Haven’s Café Nine on Thursday, January 30th, opening for Spirit Family Reunion.

Chicago Underground Duo Age of Energy
(Northern Spy)
I’ve seen this duo described as “avant-garde jazz,” but on their sixth full-length as a duo, cornet player Rob Mazurek and drummer/ percussionist Chad Taylor mostly tackle electronic experimentation. The first side consists of twenty-minute “Winds and Sweeping Pine,” with fluctuating cyber-sounds and muffled vocals that capture the feel of a strangely welcoming computerized landscape. The brisk percussion kicks in after a while and leaves before returning in a more tribal (then more jazz-style) form for some eerie sensual darkness toward the end, concluding with synth, free-sounding cornet and fast-paced percussion for an unmistakably jazz sound. Side 2 continues with more subtle electronic and cornet textures on “It’s Alright.” The electronic-free “Castle In Your Heart” follows, dominated by Taylor playing a Zimbabwean-inspired melody on his mbira (Mazurek plays cornet again too.)  The title track brings the album to its very usual close, with whizzing sci-fi electronic sounds backed by jazz drums crashing along, soon joined again by Mazurek’s inventive brass playing.
