An übertrio drawn from distinct parts of the creative music spectrum, The Underflow was recorded during a sizzling two-night stand in May 2019. In a series of duets and trios, guitarist David Grubbs, saxophonist Mats Gustafsson, and trumpeter Rob Mazurek met headlong for the first time, converging not only their acoustic and electric instruments, but at times submerging themselves in a tangle of electronics, then emerging into shamanic bell-shaking chant or chest-rattling howl. Ranging from extreme noise to delicate texture (even a rare solo by Gustafsson on his first instrument, the flute), the CD’s five tracks mark the beginning of a new group, named — the same as the record — after the venue at which they were recorded, the venerable Underflow Record Shop and Art Gallery in Athens, Greece. Harnessing the energy and intelligence of Grubbs’s recent solo guitar records, the spirit and grit of Mazurek’s hallmark work with the Chicago Underground Duo and recent Desert Encrypts project, and the monster-truck yowl of full- force Gustafsson, The Underflow is a surprise even for its participants, a present they gave themselves. Open with care, volatile contents inside.

Recorded by Manolis Aggelakis at Underflow Records and Art Gallery, Athens, Greece, on May 31, 2019. Mixed and mastered by Alex Inglizian, ESS Chicago summer 2019. Personnel: David Grubbs – guitar; Mats Gustafsson – flute, fluteophone, baritone saxophone, live electronics; Rob Mazurek – piccolo trumpet, wooden flute, electronics, percussion, voice.




In 2018, Mats Gustafsson provided raw saxophonic material for the elusive Wendy Gondeln, who sometimes applied a scalpel, sometimes a pneumatic drill, to rework, remix, reimagine all the Swede’s squeaks, pops, blats, and tones. In some places, Gondeln adds violent violin to thicken the roux, making Ornette‘s fiddling seem like Yehudi Menuhin. Uncommon bedfellows: disjunct techno and improvised music. But the Shitholes make it work brilliantly, even inviting minimal techno pioneer and co-founder of Cologne’s seminal Kompakt label Wolfgang Voigt to edit and remix two of the twisted tracks. The CD’s other guest star, engineer Martin Siewert, contributes guitar and lap top guitar to a couple of tracks. Not your usual any kind of music, The Shithole Country & Boogie Band bends genres and upends style. Spasmodic dance music or highly conceptual experimental sound art — it’s a thin line Gondeln and Gustafsson tread on these eight diverse tracks, but an irresistibly fun one, too.

Personnel: Wendy Gondeln – violin, electronic treatments, and more; Mats Gustafsson – piano mate, saxophones, and live electronics; Wolfgang Voigt – editing and mix (track 3 and 8); Martin Siewert – guitar and lap top guitar (track 1 and 7).
