La Musica Surreale (From the Midwest) 7
This is a great CD it will make you laugh and scare the hell out of you. Melodies that will stick to you like a great one by Thelonius Monk and sound collages that would seem more like the soundtrack to a Star Trek episode. Complete with Funk, Swing, Polka, Turkish, hipster, and shit kicking country grooves and recorded at the high point of this particular line up. This is the Horn section album with additional guests of Jason Beers (synth) and Christine Brebes (Violin). The packaging is unique in that it is hand made to look like an action figure case. This is the album to buy a hard copy of because like the first album (cowtown ballroom sessions)this package design is only the first thousand CD's and then it will return to conventional packaging. This local Kansas City band has continued to make people scratch their heads and utter 'I don't understand it but, I like it'.
