Ain't Nothing Like It
Matt Duane Griffin | MA United States | 10/30/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Gideon Freudman may be known to some (not too many) for the use of samples from the next album he did, "Adobe Dog House" on NPR's All Things Considered. That CD contains a few songs but is predominately instrumental. Banking Left is a big mutant fistful of psychedelic pop played on effects-laden cello with quitar accompaniment. Sometimes it's funny, occasionally it's creepy, mostly it's loopy nonsequiturs mixed with satirical observations. Robin Hitchcock is a good reference point, and by extension so is Syd Barrett, but of course neither of them was a cellist and neither of them hailed from Western Massachusetts. I would invite you to check this out if you've been looking for a different take on psychedelic music or if you've ever wondered what a whole CD of original songs by the cellist from the Dar Williams song "The Pointless, Yet Poignant, Crisis of a Co-ed" would sound like. In either case, you will have discovered a unique talent."
