These three New York musical heavyweights have a rich history on the outer reaches of instrumental improv, with mainman Dave Shuford having done time in notorious brow-furrowers and jaw-droppers The No-Neck Blues Band. Yet little could have prepared us for 'Redshift's outrageous journey into the unknown, arriving at a sonic plateau where country tradition is extrapolated entirely off-map into sci-fi experimentalism, and where a stripped-down approach and raw physicality of performance enliven knotty and cerebral jams into something truly thrilling. Something like what might have happened if Kurt Vonnegut designed a mathrock band, Rhyton are creators of deliverance and delirium both.
