about

After a 3 year absence, Tombed Visions founder David McLean finally reemerges with his Aging project, assembling a small jazz quartet to play loose, slow burning improvised torch songs that sounds like they was recorded in a smoke filled dive bar in the wrong part of town, the players becoming more and more inebriated throughout their set. A thick fog of reverb permeates throughout the entirety of the album like a bad hangover. Twin Tenor Saxophones take turns either crooning slowly in unison or snipping at each other across the bar, like an impassioned couple slowly beginning to resent each other as the drinks take their tole on the empty dance floor; a tango of passion and fury. Jon Perry keeps the pulse behind the kit, anchoring the sound with a brush heavy swing that punctures the mist, always finding room to add inventive percussive colour. Double Bassist Andy Patterson, along with Perry, really anchor the sound, his playing deep, dark and groove heavy. The album also features the guest vocals of celebrated Manchester poet, Lauren Bolger, who also titled the album. It's here that the group go into their most narcotically insane; free jazz gut shot in a dark alley, crawling its blood soaked carcass across the rain soaked cobbles into a redemptive, evil crescendo. Bolger poetics unfurl across the bruised murder ballad like smoke from a cigarette as Naked (On Drugs) Sebastien Perrin hammers the keys and warbles in the distant when he dosent have his sax in his mouth. It sounds exactly like murder. And like murder, this record is best practiced in the dark of the night.
