KEY PRESS FOR AGE OF ENERGY:

Review in eMusic
“Really a wonderful album that throws enough curveballs to keep the album perpetually interesting and uncategorizable. The sort of avant-garde music that could appeal to a wide cross-section of genre fans. Highly Recommended.”

Chicago Underground Duo review in The NYC Jazz Record
“The whole album has this feel of hearing the sounds of the environment, being inspired by them, but never forgetting to respect the lay of the land.”

NY Times
“This long-running avant-garde outfit, consisting of the cornetist Rob Mazurek and the drummer Chad Taylor (along with a wealth of electronic effects), has a typically venturesome new album, Age of Energy, on the Northern Spy label.”

Time Out New York
“On the lush new Age of Energy (Northern Spy), celebrated at tonight’s gig, Mazurek and Taylor collage unbridled cornet-drums improv with celestial drone pop and synth-haloed dub.”

Review in the Chicago Reader
“Despite the fact that the duo’s sound has evolved consistently across its six albums, this new one is something of a shocker.”
