Monsieur KoZo I can't say which track I prefer, you should listen to Side$how in one go.

Chris Dinsmore Bed of Nails Part 5 alone is worth the price of admission. Favorite track: Bed of Nails, part 5 (2nd Meditation).

Ghigigi Side$how is a constantly-engaging blend of ambitious instrumental progressive rock with many trappings of jazz. Touches of electronic genres and krautrock crop up throughout this release’s 41-minute runtime.

William Cash Funky, slick af cerebral fusion that’s incredibly musical. Concept album with a twist.

Aakashdeep My favourite record of 2019! The grooves are contagious and the vibes are 5-star. Inventive and complex music theory is woven into songs so deftly that you do not even notice it, everything fits perfectly. The ostenatos used throughout the album are simple, but permutate like an untamed beast, catching you by surprise. One of my all time favorite jazz records, would recommend to anyone with a hunger for grooves and good vibes 😎 Favorite track: Bed of Nails, part 5 (2nd Meditation).

about

"(...) a fun, upbeat collection of music."
"(...) a constantly-engaging blend of ambitious instrumental progressive rock with many trappings of jazz. Touches of electronic genres and krautrock crop up throughout."
(...) I am also not a fan of the current zeitgeist of jazzy, instrumental rock and metal epitomized by acts like Intervals, Plini, and Sithu Aye. So much of it just sounds like aimless, speedy noodling. Thank God this album avoids those pitfalls magnificently."
[The Elite Extremophile]



SIDE$HOW
"An incidental diversion or spectacle in addition of the main entertainment (as of a circus)"

A sidestep from Louis' more serious musical experiments
Loose and fun jam session between Brooklyn friends
A sideshow's a great way to make easy money on the side! Bring your children!


BED OF NAIL$
"Witness the Fakir's legendary coolness!"

This first Sideshow album features the "Bed of Nails" suite - a cosmic Nu Jazz journey where sonic spikes tickle your brain and body.
Watch out for more Sideshow attractions in the near future!


NEW PROCE$$
"Live musical Oddities!"

Recorded live in a studio and on a Brooklyn soundstage, this album is a drastic departure from the computer-generated DUAL (2017) and Outside The Square (2018), which were meticulously assembled and edited, note by note.
SIDE$HOW is a release-after-tension affair.
Based on a simple ostinato, the eight variations are mostly improvised on the spot.
Economy of means at the service of musical interplay.
