Peter Hoff Great group! Nice nonpretentious use of dodecaphony, odd meters, and electronics. This is what post-whatever is all about. Favorite track: Resistance.

about

"Possibly not music for late night romance, there is often a soft and sensitive side emerging on all six tracks. But ultimately it’s pounded into submission by the assorted electronic buzzes and drum blasts. Intensely relaxing though; weird." - Vancouver Sun

"The project is terrific...intense, involuted amplified acoustic guitar noodlin's and cleaver-chop chords from Albanese; Dave Chokroun permuting loping electric basslines and perversifyin' them into - well, different loping electric basslines; Lyons alternately channeling Billy Martin (in terms of how he sounded) and a young John Wright (in terms of how he looked).

French For Sled Dogs are focussed and intense without being bugfuck; "math rock," as Chokroun had called them, is not an appellation that I immediately get excited about, since at times it suggests music that makes my head hurt, but there was a freedom in what French For Sled Dogs did at 1067 that kept things from getting too cerebral or manic. It was very easy to close my eyes and just listen (or to watch them; Chokroun seems to play electric bass with his jaw, or at least his lips, slightly off-kilter, something I don't recall noticing when he drums or plays his more regular acoustic bass)."
