meets I Dig Monk, Tuned

Velvet Pouch, with its Mingus-like sax/brass soulfulness turning to brittle, Tim Berneian hooks and fine work from Alex Roth on guitar, is a standout. Berne and Jim Black fans, among others, will feel at home with this variously melodious and unswervingly exploratory music.”

The Guardian

“Think Steve Coleman meets Deerhoof, in a darkened room.”

The Irish Times

“With its shifting moods and dynamics this is an album that demands a degree of work from the listener but it’s well worth the effort.”
