A Rotation of Thoughts and Themes (Caulfield). Review by Daniel L. Mitchell.
From his teen days in Squirrel Bait through stints with Slint and Gastr Del Sol and on to his solo work for Drag City, David Grubbs has long been an innovator in music. Nirav Soni spoke with Grubbs about improvisation, collaborations, Indian music, and the Beach Boys.
Don’t call them math-rock, and don’t compare them to Slint, because you won’t be doing justice to the lush and understated beauty of the Mercury Program. Nirav Soni chairs a roundtable discussion with all four members of the atmospheric and critically acclaimed Gainesville quartet.
