A Humdrum Star

A Humdrum Star

This UK trio deals in spacious harmony and driving rhythm, drawing in listeners with hypnotic, open-ended song forms and the kinds of beats and sonic elements one hears in electronic music. Pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka, and drummer Rob Turner, along with the strength and virtuosity of their individual sounds, have developed a seamless blend and a way of conveying musical grandeur. The complex arc of "Strid" and the looping, asymmetric funk of "Bardo" and "Reactor" are among the highlights.
