Descripción del producto
What we have here is a New York City avant garde convergence at its finest. The idea of a meeting between Yoko Ono, Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore is so perfect, so obvious, the only shock is that it didn t happen earlier. Recorded last year at Manhattan s Sear Sound, the album features lead vocals by Yoko, with backing vocals and guitars by Kim and Thurston. It s a wild collision of song-form, poetics, free-rock and classic glossolalic ecstasy. Yoko has not allowed herself to sound this raw since the earliest recordings of the Plastic Ono Band. There s a remarkably empathic and comfortable quality to the sound. The three communicate as though they d been playing together forever.

You don't have to be a partisan of 20th Century and 21st Century music composition to get all this, but it helps. You can hear elements of Stravinsky (the most conservative influence at this point), and also Shoenberg and Varese. Many other minimalists. Even Zappa, if you think of some of his improvisational work with percussion in the earlier days. That this is played by a very small ensemble is pretty incredible. Yoko's vocals defy description. During the opening track, it's pretty obvious to me that she is blending orgasm and childbirth into dueling phrases. History will be incredibly kind to Yoko. Visionaries get their due. Too bad it's usually after they pass to the next quantum or quanta or, as Yoko put it best, approximately infinite universe.
The playing here is virtuosic, the composed and improvised parts mesh seamlessly...and I might add something that most reviewers wouldn't notice. Yoko is a vocal interpreter of sometimes "non musical events." In that respect, you might check out Yma Sumac...another of my faves as a fifteen year old and up til this day. Sumac did these incredible takes on things like windstorms and volcanos and tropical birdsong. Nobody really got her, either. Check out Voice of Xtabay. You'll be blown away. Glad I was offered these opportunities as a kid.
Hope you found this review useful.
If you prefer Yoko's pop sounds, then albums like Approximately Infinite Universe (2cd Slim), Feeling the Space, and A Story may be more your cup of tea. But for avant-garde/alternative music fans, YOKOKIMTHURSTON may be a good buy.
