<I>Astral Cinema</I>, the fourth Fretless AZM album on Holistic Recordings, leaves behind some of the noodling that marked his earlier works and instead goes for more straightforward tracks. The opening track, “Framed in Funk,” is succinct and clean, which makes it more effective. “Thought for Food” has multiple lines vying for melody (plus some ghostly noises), while “Steppin on the Cracks” has a thoughtful groove and some nice guitar work. “Big Wheel Butterflies” adds some modal melodies to keep things mysteriously interesting. The final track, “Out House,” is pretty gentle, but nonetheless pleasing. Check it out.
