Album Review: "Galactic Cowboy Orchestra" by Flirting With Chaos (9/10)

Label: New Folk Records

Producer: Galactic Cowboy Orchestra

With their sixth release, the virtuoso Minneapolis quartet is not one to rest on its laurels. The intrepid ensemble has always pushed the boundaries where rock, jazz, world and symphonic music collide. This album expands on that concept, with a seamless blend of experimental riffs and lush, spacey sounds. The title track is a prime example, with mid-‘70s King Crimson-like abandon. While primarily an instrumental band, there are some key vocal offerings by violinist Lisi Wright on KC’s “21st Century Schizoid Man” and two original tracks.
