Synopsis

Amazon.com
Hailing from the force-joining of British avant-prog pioneer Hugh Hopper (as in Soft Machine's bassist), and Portland, Oregon, oddball rock outfit Caveman Shoestore, Hughscore revolve around Elaine Di Falco's keyboards and voice and an entrancing mix of all the pedal steel, thick bass, accordion, Fender Rhodes piano, and horns you can imagine. This collection of tunes shows off elements beyond the collaborative unit's debut, Caveman Hughscore, especially sonic trickster Tucker Martine's drumming and production. Martine gives the mix a dub feel that manages to pile so much on top of the horns (from folks as renowned as fellow-Soft Machine vet Elton Dean and as underaccorded as Seattleite Craig Flory) that they just kind of wind out of the mix, making hang-dog solos around keyboards that twitter and pirouette and delight. --Andrew Bartlett
