"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."
