3 stars US outfit TRIP LAVA is the creative vehicle of composer and multi-instrumentalist Joel Lee, who carries out all composition and instrumental duties on his albums himself. He made his debut with "Oddball in the Corner Pocket" in 2007. Since then he has been signed by local label Shark Records, and a further two albums have seen the light of day. "Ounds" is the most recent of those, and was released earlier this year.

Trip Lava's third album "Ounds" is one of those albums I suspect should sit very well among those who tend to enjoy the more challenging music that was and to some extent still is explored by the so-called Krautrock bands. Trip Lava is a bit more cosmic perhaps, and arguably a tad more abrasive, but I'd hazard a guess that for those into difficult music in this and related fields this will not really matter. How much of an appeal this CD will have beyond that crowd is something I'm unsure of, but generally speaking I suspect that this is the most conventional of Trip Lava's unconventional discography so far.
