The Great Harry Hillman - Tilt

For their latest and third album, The Great Harry Hillman from Switzerland joined forces with Cuneiform records - a logic fit since this band really knows how to push the genre's envelope. Still, "Tilt" does not burst with crazy ideas and arrangements for most parts but contains intense and exciting compositions which create their energy through a calm and melodic approach.

With the Great Harry Hillman its a fragile coming together of many instrumental layers that combine for great arrangements as they meet and dissolve and meet again for beautiful harmonies and progressive grooves. The opener "Snoezelen" or "The New Fragrance" are perfect examples of this very mature approach in which every rhythm and melody is perfectly yet somehow freely drifting in it's place. "How To Dice An Onion" on the other hand displays a completely different and rhythmically challenging approach - and there's your creative burst of jazz-energy.

You can stream the full album on Bandcamp.
