Eric Gedenk I came upon this power trio from a friend's recommendation, and was absolutely floored. Jazz titans.

Sudaksis Clean, complex, and introspective. Truly a unique and impressive album from three masterful musicians. <3 Favorite track: In Amber (Bonus Track).

chazjames57 Such a brilliant album. The tightness of the trio is insane... some of the intricate timings/passages etc are truly stunning to listen to. Garden Dog Barbecue has a deeper meaning to me as well because I played it at my audition for the RNCM. So you could say I wouldn’t have gotten in to college if it weren’t for this album. Favorite track: Garden Dog Barbecue.

It was named a Mercury Prize album of the year 2014 alongside albums from Damon Albarn, Young Fathers and Jungle. The extended version was first released on 2xLP for RSD 18 on clear vinyl.

Included here for the first time is theincessant 'Break' featuring a killer groove that offers a notdto the one and only Squarepusher, 'Wash', a haunting slice of the band at their most ambient and the wonderful 'In Amber', the first track that the new line-up wrote completely together.

    UK press praise for GoGo Penguin v2.0
