ALMEIDA | LONBERG-HOLM | PEREIRA



“Lonberg-Holm distorts his cello to the point that it sounds like both a bass and an electric guitar at once; sometimes it sounds like he’s stretching giant rubber bands over the mouth of a steel barrel, with the whole junkyard assemblage mic’ed and swathed in echo and reverb. Almeida’s horn sound is clean and very dry. He occasionally rises to a passionate cry, but mostly grows and murmurs to himself, emitting long strings of notes and sometimes devolving into a gritty squall. Pereira’s drumming is post-rhythmic, with only a suggestion of timekeeping found in the way he sets up repeated small explosions.” Phil Freeman, Burning Ambulance.
