Chemical Clock EP

Chemical Clock is the name of the EP that fills the digital grooves of a recent Table and Chairs disk (004). It's electric (principally via the effects sometimes coming from Cameron Sharif's keys), avant, a little free and tightly packed with arranged barrages--in a manner one might dub post-prog jazz.

With Sharif are Ray Larsen, trumpet, who adds a distinctive personality to the sound, along with the rhythm team of Mark Hunter on bass and Evan WoodLe, drums. Together they make for a convincing ensemble.

There's plenty of well constructed music to be heard in the 20-something minutes playing time on offer here. It's not fluff, not commercial pap. It's serious about itself and with consistency comes through nicely.
