Absurd in the Anthropocene

Standard 2 x 180g 33rpm Vinyl LP

- Chris Philips, Jazz FM

"a fire hose of electronic fusion, heavy on synth and pyrotechnic horn solos, with complex charts and extremely hard-driving, almost rock rhythms… the whole record is great"

- Stereogum

"His horn skips and leaps, delivering breathtakingly long phrases with stunning control; he's a powerhouse player intent on overwhelming the listener with pyrotechnics, as the band crash forward."
- The Wire

"A joyous, surrealist triumph"
- Record Collector

"Absurd in the Anthropocene is arguably his most diverse collection to date and, intriguingly, it’s also one that’s strangely cohesive. 
And like his previous outings, it’s also ridiculously fun."
