Ed Buckley This is -hm- a prog rock/jazz fusion with classical overtones and an experimental bent. Only 4 tracks, I'm left wishing for more. Beats, syncopated rhythms, synth, horns; this has some superb compositions and playing. My thanks for this go to Olga Kivius, who has an intriguingly eclectic collection. Favorite track: Logistic Minutia.

On the EP are four instrumental pieces written for guitar, bass, synthesizer, drums, and a 4-piece brass section consisting of two trombones, french horn, and trumpet.

The concept for Logistic Minutia formed while I was living in Athens, Ga and performing with indie jazz/rock artist Dan Nettles of Kenosha Kid. Inspired by the band's compositional detail and genre bending, I began the sketches that would eventually become "Logistic Minutia". These initial ideas continued to morph and develop after I moved to New York City and began performing extensively in its vibrant contemporary classical and indie rock scenes. As a result, Logistic Minutia exhibits a strong rock foundation with classical and jazz overtones.

"It’s a little bit Colin Stetson... a little bit Battles on jazz-downers, and little bit computer game music (in a good way)."
-Jack Midalia, Life Is Noise

"Logistic Minutia is the perfect treadmill workout music for any robot kangaroo on a permanent Mountain Dew high"
-Arcane Candy
