Slog "Drew Field 45" (NCM 40125)        $11.99
This concept drawn out by these instruments with this execution is not on the books yet. This said with no mention of the grace and passion that fills Drew Field 45, from compositions of blazing energy to ear-twisting brain prod.

BIFT [Wildman Glassmeyer Moran] (NCM 40121)         $11.99    
Sean Moran (guitar), Jason Wildman (drums) and Matt Glassmeyer (saxophone, buzzaphone and other miscellaneous sounds and samples) surgically drop convention in instrumentation and composition while piquing curiosity through ten tracks. The trio's unencumbered improvisation is the three-legged planchette that pulses around the Ouija Board, spelling out any number of calming to shocking results.

Twelve 20 Six "Twelve 20 Six" (NCM 40114)         $11.99
The spawn of a badly ventilated New York boiler room/rehearsal space, Twelve20 Six gathered in late 1999 to hammer out some rather extensive instrumental arrangements for drums, acoustic bass, guitar, tuba, trombone, saxophone and assorted noise generators. This release appropriately documents the gamut they have boldly run, from Prokoviev's ballet, to backbeats, to out-and-out mayhem. Oh, rather.
