4 stars Like their previous release, Volume One, Perhaps has created Volume Two as a single long track (although almost ten minutes shorter than the first). As a bass player, I appreciate that this group presents it's bottom out front (not in the same way as Miley Cyrus, in her recent awards show appearance).

The track is a blend of psychedelic improvisation and some tightly orchestrated avant-garde segments. The improvisation is splended, mostly led by some blazing guitar work. But it's in the orchestrated parts of the track where I am most impresses. Speedily plucked bass fits perfectly with the guitars in melodies and harmonies that most remind me of avant virtuosos Henry Kaiser and Mike Kenneally. They provide the setup for the improvs, as well as transitions between the differing segments of the piece.

As I stated in the rewiew of Volume One, Boston, despite the presence of the Berklee School, is not an easy place for such a challenging band to exist. I applaud these musicians for making such an effort in this town.

Evolver | 4/5 |
