ANDY LOEBS "Open New Window" C18 (Self-Released)

Banged out solely on a Korg Electribe 2, Andy Loebs’ “Open New Window” sprints across 18 minutes of proggy footwork and vaporwavy gamelan* polyrhythmics in such a dizzying hurry it’s hard to tell just what the hell is going on. Think Orange Milk’s mid-2010’s percussion-centric, dancy-freakout style, a-la Darren Keen and Barry Helafonte, but more mercilessly caffeinated. This is some pretty rad stuff to get the heart & mind up & racing! Helluva workout!
