Bryce Director launches off with this driving intensity of jazzy instrumentation which lasts throughout the entire album. The field recordings of small crowds chatting in the background gives the music this feeling as if you were there listening to the band live in a small setting such as a backyard party or a tiny venue. This is truly an amazing album and one of my favorites of 2015. Favorite track: Theme From A Dark Party.

Andrew Waterloo Three guys who showed up late, setup in the middle of the floor with 3 lamps, and just played and played. It's improvised guitar jams from atypical places with psychedelia and something Brazillian at the centre. The drummer is relentless. Favorite track: North To South.

Wiseguy E Best album I've heard in the last 2 years. Plain and simple.
Cooper Casale

Cooper Casale By far the greatest live show I have ever seen. "Director" is one of the most transporting records I have listened to in a long time. It plays like a stream of consciousness exhibition of a culture I just now have encountered. Can't stop listening to it. Contender for AOTY 2015. Favorite track: North To South.

about

“This is a world party, respectful of tradition but unafraid to throw everything in a blender and gulp. A frequently dazzling display of the trio's impressively far-flung influences.
The feel of driving past a bustling street scene with the windows down, Director manages to feel maybe 10 minutes shorter, so rarely does it pause to fully soak in the scenery.” (Pitchfork)
