Boat Burning - Ignition (2012)

The debut album from this US band.

The band is a sextet with a lineup of drums, percussion, tabla, cello, violin, guitars and tapes.

This is the first of two albums from this band. I am not too bothered about the second album so I will not review it. The link to their two albums is here.

The music on this half an hour long album is krautrock.

Amon Duul is a good reference here.

Their music is not as primitive as Amon Duul's albums. 

The violin and cello is adding a lot of textures to the music and so is the guitar solos.

The sound is pretty bad to good. The reason is that this is a collection of jams and the sound quality varied a lot from jam to jam.

The result is a half decent album. It is not an album I find much enjoyable but fans of primitive krautrock and Amon Duul may find this an album well worth pursuing.

1.5 points
