J. ZAGERS "Key Conduciton" (Human Conduct)


As this recording begins, the torqued icicle of a saxophone signals the reality blues.  Fearlessly gentle, the album proceeds through various weird realities.  At times recalling David Oliphant's music, at others Peter Gabriel's soundtrack work, it feels like a letter that slowly phases into bad news.  The production barely conceals terrifying chasms under a veneer of "vacation" keyboard beats.  Sometimes, disaffected vocals appear.  Sometimes knights on flying horses appear to rescue children from trees.  This tape is very interesting.
