Human Voicing is a hypnotic groove recorded with “nothing but the loosest of outline and a few skeletal sketches.” This is an interesting album because of the improv-heavy recording sessions and open-ended approach taken by the six band members, but is surely not a disappointment. While some songs are a jumble images, highlighted by a mess of repeated randomness, the album as a whole ultimately connects because of the band’s rock-solid musicianship. The album features oscillating percussion, pitch-shifting backup vocals, and complex guitar tracks which come together to build a surprisingly full and gorgeous soundscape.
