The Other Side of Life is proud to present:
WEI ZHONGLE‘s most recent album “Nu Trance” is like a broadcast from the future, it’s as if a very singular post-kosmische sound were vaguely situated in the tropics. Can, This Heat, and 80′s Downtown New York lay somewhere in WEI ZHONGLE’s world mutant genetic imprint. The members of WEI ZHONGLE are nomads. The intuitive vocals by Rob Jacobs are sometimes in English but mostly in a language of his own inventive but perhaps also channeling ancient vocal traditions, while laying down hypnotizing guitar. The effects-enhanced clarinet by John McCowen floats over and weaves through it all, pulling everything out in four dimensions. Minds are blown when these three elements merge.
John McCowen – Clarinet
Pat Kuehn – Bass
Phillip Sudderberg – Drums
Rob Jacobs – Guitar, Vocals
A pastoral suite of electronics, acoustic guitars, synthesizers and rhythm machine, Breslin is the latest work from FLANGER MAGAZINE, the duo of Chris Bush and Ben Zoeller, whose previous work in the group Caboladies serves as a touchstone. Imitation strings, electronic interruptions, and nylon acoustic guitar figures touched with reverb are the perennial players in this work.
