2017 Honorable Mention Pick 3

Aethenor: Hazel (VHF Records, 2017)

I had to do some searching around to get a handle on the folks that made this record.  It was made by musicians of varying backgrounds and that makes sense as it is a mash of jazz, ambient electronics, and a wee bit of jam rock.

The drummer is a jazz drummer that has played with Peter Brotzmann and he’s pretty much the star of the show.  He’s a very engaging drummer, switching up on a regular basis but all within the context of what’s going on around him.

It’s hard to describe the music these guys crank out.  It has elements of Sigur Ros but not as dreamlike and noisier.  Check it out.
