The debut album from two of Australia’s finest improvisers, violinist Shenzo Gregorio (FourPlay, Shenzo’s Electric Stunt Orchestra) and guitarist Julian Curwin (The Tango Saloon, Darth Vegas). Largely avoiding their main axes, the pair draw from a wide arsenal including cavaquinho (Brazilian ukelele), detuned lap steel, a leaf blower and even the kitchen sink.
Elaquent’s music recalls Oddisee’s instrumental work and Flying Lotus’ Cali-infused electronica. On “Worst Case Scenario,” the composer emotes a pastoral essence. Bandcamp Album of the Day Dec 16, 2016
