FORUM & SITE ADMIN GROUP Avant, Crossover & Neo Teams
4 stars MICROKINGDOM have been founded as an experimental / avantgarde / improvised jazz / electronic trio hailing from Baltimore. This album "Three Compositions Of No Jazz" released in 2011 is their debut full-length creation filled with their innovative characteristics to stimulate our inner minds directly. The album was produced as an homage to a US free jazz composer / multi-instrumentalist Anthony Braxton, with their obvious intention and attitude to play 'jazz'. The second track "Aire Metal", one of my favourite songs, is sorta authentic jazz featuring electronic percussion and hard-edged saxophone sounds. Payment even only for this track can be made, let me say.

The first shot "Peppermint Crab" is, contrary to following one, electro-drenched quirky free / avantgarde jazz one to stir my brain. In the middole of this album "Gamut Runner", freely ambient sound / noise jack-in-the-box reminds me of Horde Catalytique Pour La Fin, free jazz unit. Another ambience river flow "The Myth Of The Rainy Night" is comfortable like smoothie.The last noisy, freaky weirdness "Surgery Ghosts" sounds just like what the title says.

This debut album is pretty promising for avantgarde-progressive rock scene, even if their soundscape should be flooded with electronic procedure like Jean Guérin. A stuff that let us feel of various possibility.
