Fire! with Jim O´Rourke - Unreleased? ALBUM STREAMING


The ubiquitous Swedish sax player Mats Gustafsson recorded a second album with his band Fire! with bassist  Johan Berthling and drummer Andreas Werliin on Rune Grammofon. This time they are join by Jim O'Rourke for some textured dark crawling psychedelia. The album is called "Unreleased?" although it was already released in May 2011. Despite Mats Gustafsson's presence, this is no jazz or free jazz or improvised music per se, this is closer to some krautrock jam fronted by a saxophone, the sound is dirty and menacing : dark krautrock? Whatever, an intriguing and fascinating set.
You can spook the entire album down here.
