What a beautiful noise.

You probably know Tyondai Braxton best as one-quarter of advanced maths combo Battles. It is now time to get to know his forthcoming solo album, “Central Market”.

“Uffe’s Woodshop” is the first tune from that album to slip out from beneath the covers. It’s a mini-symphony of kazoos, violins, violas, synths, electronics, piano, six guitars, bass, drums and percussion. It’s a large out-there tune which swoops and swoons and carries on down the road without a care in the world. By all accounts, the album is just as head-expanding. A tune your post-modern milkman would probably whistle at 6am in the morning if he wasn’t listening to Maxi. Hear it here or download it here. And no, I don’t gave a clue who Uffe is either.
