YOSHIMIO / SUSIE IBARRA / ROBERT AIKI AUBREY LOWE
Flower of Sulphur 2LP (Gatefold)
Thrill Jockey 456 / USA / 2018
Flower of Sulphur is a transfixing piece of continuous improvisation from three experimental luminaries : multi-instrumentalist YoshimiO (Boredoms, OOIOO, SAICOBAB), internationally acclaimed percussionist Susie Ibarra, and artist Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (Lichens). The trio’s jaw dropping performance was recorded in December 2016 at Roulette in Brooklyn. Flower of Sulphur documents a singular evening of exquisite sound and exceptional performance. Absolutely an essential album, pristinely recorded, and capturing a rare performance. A must have for any fans of creative innovation and improvistation.
