Similar to the previous set of Lathe singles, Loud & Sad (who on occasion here get "loud") marry Joe's acoustic set up of banjo and percussion with Nathan's stable of electronics. The Bass Rumblings of "Overture" are something I would like to hear more of - perfectly buried beneath squeaks and a massive free jazz drum snare free for all. While I could handle a full album of that, the record takes a bit more traditional turn with a banjo nod to Alan Lomax blistered with welcome electronic interruptions. Soft melodies and lots of subtleties to be found here. Perfect for headphones, and more importantly, perfect for meditation this sub-zero morning in preparation for a bitter, bitter cold run.
