Seattle, another all-instrumental trio a la Tristeza. If it's all
about textures (the electronic kind), than the cloth is seamless,
ridgeless, colorless felt. The overall lack of central melody /
dynamics / variety makes this nothing more than a tedious exercise
in synth-tone noodling. The idea is to create improvisational jazz
atop super-clean production (by PNW indie guru Phil Ek no less),
and though there's a framework underneath, it does little more than
repeat, repeat, repeat itself. I liken it to the fading light in
your retinas after the flash-bulb pop, the muzik resonates in your
mind with the annoying echo of bell-like keyboards -- and that's
all you'll remember after your first listen
