about

Gipsy Freedom is the sound of the band combining their influences more fluently than ever before. While past releases saw the band's avant folk dosed somewhat conservatively with the blues, free jazz, heavy psych and metal, Gipsy Freedom brings these other, non-folk elements to the fore and generally turns the volume up. Compensating for the relative dearth of wooden instruments this time around is guest star Daniel Carter, who positively levitates the two tracks he plays on.

Make no mistake - Gipsy Freedom may separate the true fans from the fickle. It is both the band's most confounding and rewarding release, perhaps the first release on which with each member's distinct personality is represented completely and evenly. You may hear the faint echos of "Island Harvest" era Albert Ayler on one track, Iommi-derived riffage on the next, torch songs that sound torn straight from the Gershwin songbook on the next, and Can-style epic grooves on the next. Radically different, yet sustaining the band's high level of musical and thematic consistency, Gipsy Freedom is the sound of a band breaking out of the box and using the discarded shapes to construct strange new universes.
