NOT IN STOCK
"The Boxhead Ensemble returns with their fourth proper studio album (fifth in sum) since the inception of the Dutch Harbor project in 1996. The collective's leader Michael Krassner (guitar/organ/FX) joins forces with Fred Lonberg-Holm (Vandermark 5, Terminal 4, Valentine Trio) on cello/harmonica, Frank Rosaly (drums) & Jacob Kolar (prepared piano), generating a meditative aura unlike any other. Nocturnes is a like-minded & appropriately gorgeous follow-up to their Two Brothers and Quartets recordings. What began in as an ad-hoc experimental coalition assembled to generate a lost Alaskan film soundtrack has grown into a familiar yet haunting sonic tapestry, perfectly suited to long drives, private moments and unexamined spaces. The Boxhead Ensemble is a self-propelled Flying Dutchman of a group, adrift in an endless sea of inspiration & freedom, conjuring their otherworldly sounds for us, making music that refuses to be tied to any genre, place, or time."
