Zacht Automaat - unknown

Full review to follow. I've long been saying that Carl Didur is one of the most fascinating musicians in the city by virtue of his solo work. I've also been a big fan of the steady series of releases from Zacht Automaat, his partnership with Michael McLean, his former mate in The Battleship, Ethel. I finally got to see the band in action at tonight's instalment of the excellent Feast in the East series, and except for being too brief (about the equivalent of one of the band's cassette sides) it lived up to expectations, especially when the trio was joined by Colin Fisher on sax. This song is probably drawn from the just-released Bags Inside Bags, but the music never comes with titles attached.

ZA's albums are available on Bandcamp on a name-your-price basis and they are essential Toronto listening.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
