CRESCENT

Now

(Planet) Used LP $20.00

Recorded in a two-day session in 1998 that yields careful arrangement, exquisite tension, and a free see-what-happens approach. Crescent is rougher, more brusque, than Amp or FSA, with Jones’s speak-singing delivered in a semi-snarl, not really intelligible at many points, and the moody groove the band creates even at its calmest seems laden with a hint of threat. The unclean, commercially unfriendly production helps all the more.
