NEW MUSIC: Waldo’s Gift – Kaleidoscope

1540221814138-2

Here’s some wild and freakish playing and composition from UK trio Waldo’s Gift. Jazz, post rock, avant prog and more combine on this fluttering, frenetic, precise yet freeing instrumental track that features an equally compelling video clip by Waveform Media. This beast grows and mutates, centred around that incessant metronomically pummelling rhythm. Hypnotic and thrilling stuff!

Their debut album ‘Improvisations’, released May 10th consists entirely of music composed on the fly, performed live at The Gallimaufry in Bristol on December 19th 2018. The album art was also created in the moment by artist Holysseus Fly. Speaking on the release the band share “We love playing improvised music together. It really is so cathartic to just play. To express your emotions in that moment. This album honestly captures that process, the three of us expressing. No overdubs or edits. We simply chose our favourite compositions from the performance as a whole. Having Holysseus Fly creating the artwork at the same time ties it all together.”
