Brandon Seabrook's Needle Driver

BRANDON SEABROOK’S NEEDLE DRIVER: Review in The New York City Jazz Record

“Guitarist BRANDON SEABROOK is a familiar face in New York’s new music circles, having played with Peter Evans and Jacob Garchik among others. NEEDLE DRIVER is a trio with bassist Johnny DeBlase and drummer Allison Miller, a take-no-prisoners merging of avant garde jazz, progressive rock, and heavy metal. Nothing settles into a groove—it’s nervous and constantly changing up. Seabrook probably wouldn’t want to hear the comparison, but the abrupt start and stops, constant tempo changes and ultra-fast virtuosic guitar work are reminiscent of classically-influenced British rockers Genesis, Yes, Hatfield and the North, and Gentle Giant. […] a sort of merger between shredding and Philip Glass minimalism.” – Jim Motavalli, The New York City Jazz Record

NEQUIENT: ‘Wolves At The Door’ Album Review – SonicAbuse

“If NEQUIENT had stuck to the three-minute-an-less formula when composing this album, it would have been a solid grind effort characterised by its ferocity and intense musicianship. What raises it to the ranks of the exceptional, however, is when the band break cover to deliver something that, whilst equally intense, traverses different sonic territory. The seven-minute ‘on the day of execution’ is the stand-out track, lurking at the heart of the album, ready to tackle the unwary with a demonic glimmer in its eye, but equally impressive are ‘coins for the ferryman’ and ‘screaming across the sky’, both of which make good use of their expanded run time to explore hitherto unexpected territory. The sense of dynamic works well as the listener is never allowed to become numb to the overwhelming speed of delivery and, overall, Wolves At The Door stands out as an intelligent, cranium-melting work of deviant art. 9″ – SonicAbuse

RICARDA COMETA: Review – The Quietus

“A revelation outta thin air, courtesy of this dazzlingly trigonometrical spritz of minimal rock clang from Buenos Aires. […] Ricarda Cometa 2 is wholly instrumental, but its arrangements are lyrical and florid. Heuman can play like a proto-free jazzer or Valerie Scroggins from ESG, frequently in the same movement; Espinal shreds the demarcation between rhythm and melody with a playing style that compares to Captain Beefheart, Bill Orcutt, Arto Lindsay and, especially, US Maple’s Mark Shippy.” – The Quietus
