ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Tastefully minimal without monotony, bc>ad is a collection of powerfully subtle pieces each building upon the previous with an audiophile’s sense of sound and balance. Each track presents a fresh mood, maturely keeping tabs on the trio's vast musical vocabulary. The group explores genres and themes that are linked by simple structures, resulting in expressions from jazz to post-rock to breakbeat and beyond. With this unique release, Collective Acoustics will deny and maybe even confirm your wildest categorizations.

Although the 11 tracks have a common thread in sound, the approach of each song varies widely, contrasting the familiar jazz trio sound with Hammond organ, analog synthesizers, percussion, and electric bass. These guys owe as much to DJ Shadow as to Herbie Hancock. The music is built on tight interplay and adventurous recording techniques, somewhere in the territory of Daniel Lanois or Mitchell Froom. The memorable sounds grab you at first listen, but ten more passes in headphones only raise your interest.
