Originally planned for release in conjunction with their appearance at the (now cancelled) Pitchfork Festival, we've decided to release Behold early to celebrate what would be Moondog's 104th Birthday! Behold features four tracks that didn't make it onto the original (and now OOP) Snaketime LP but are from the same magical night at the Hungry Brain in Chicago a few years ago and are just as essential as well.

So happy to see a new album from this band. I've long been a fan of Mazurek and Parker's work in Tortoise, on top of the CUQ... Anyhow, if you're curious about contemporary jazz, this is a terrific place to start.
