Chris Corsano - Cut
Chris Corsano's everywhere. He's been everywhere for awhile; collaborating with just about everyone worth noting working within avant rock, noise, and jazz circles. And while he is a marvelous component of everything he's involved, an amazing percussionist, it's his solo work that I'm most fond of. Cut is a perfect example of his wide-ranging sensibilities, quilting together a patchwork of modular noises and abstract drumming into something that satisfies immediately, track by track, and builds into something else that is cohesively resonant and confounding at the same time. A really amazing album. Also: awe-struck by the video below--Corsano is the next level.
