Pretty great albeit confusing new CD by Mssr. Bryant, he of MEV and the Space Guitar, once again in fact eschewing said guitar and utilizing what appears to be some recordings of thunderstorms followed by some wonderfully primitive electronics. Like the title says this seems to be a meditation on Darwinism on the cellular level, all of the squishy and gurgly electronics mirroring (perhaps) the soundtrack of the alleged primordial ooze, and given that premise and the pedigree of the man behind the curtain, how can you go wrong? Easily the best music concerning microbes since the Incredible String Bands A Very Cellular Song. In addition its packaged with a wonderful broadsheet exhorting the virtues of phonetic spelling and mandatory organic chemistry classes for all. Still confused? Alans track listing might illuminate things: 1. Intence THUNDR! - a real storm this x! (time) 2. bbLg: N7 benz C6 intu amino n nucleic asidz (RNA)bacTria, vyRs, plants (procaryotes). 3.
