    This debut album by Bristol-based trio Michelson Morley is melodic, exciting and beguilingly atmospheric. Led by Get The Blessing saxophonist Jake McMurchie, electronics and acoustic instruments combine with a minimalist, evolutionary approach to improvisation. At times dark, subtle and movingly beautiful, at others powerful and raw, the results are always innovative, tuneful and exciting. Scientifically aural magic.

    Jake McMurchie: saxophone, effects
    Mark Whitlam: drums, electronics
    Will Harris: double bass

    REVIEWS

    Tony Benjamin, Venue Magazine
    "… this band has a subtle range of textures that really needs our attention. The line-up is predictable and promising, but the idea is more surprising – loose modal improvisational pieces based on insistence and evolution. It’s a mix of acoustic and electric, with McMurchie’s synth-sax and pedals and Whitlam’s fancy-pad augmented kit adding loops and language beyond the expected... there’s a snappy little tune and, for one number, a surf-pop drumbeat and a wig-out bass like jazz on a 60s Californian beach."
