Colin Stetson, Billy Martin, Elliot Sharp & Payton MacDonald - Void PatrolColin Stetson, Billy Martin, Elliot Sharp & Payton MacDonald - Void Patrol

Time arrested, contested and suggested, “Void Patrol,” blooms in unraveled prog-jazz cocoons, collateral accidents coalescing through communal grooves moving in electronic ripples, saxophone splashes and wood-block waves laying a dark rhythmic undertow bubbling beneath darting catharsis and textured conjecture. Ambient phantoms whose disruptive conjunctions yield strangely logical options teetering between ephemeral genesis and unruly conclusions; Stetson on saxophone, Sharp on strings and electronics, Martin on drums and percussions and MacDonald on keyboard percussion lunge from cunning conundrums to sinister quivering, chasing pacing deviations towards distinct destinations. The experimental quartet culls years of experience with bands as disparate as Arcade Fire and Medeski Martin and Wood to navigate murky curiosity for thirsty excursions through galactic abstractions basking in exploratory detours with casual grace and eerie accuracy.
