Gastr del Sol, man. Felt I should right the wrong of only ever seeing this in sketchy playlist form by uploading some high quality files

Crookt, Crackt, or Fly is a 1994 album by Gastr del Sol released on Drag City. The album was written and performed by David Grubbs and Jim O'Rourke, with John McEntire (percussion), Steve Butters (percussion) and Gene Coleman (Bass Clarinet) also contributing. The band The Sea and Cake derived their name from a willful reinterpretation of the song "The C in Cake" based on misheard lyrics. Wedding in the Park" – 1:02.

Gastr del Sol (derived from a derby-winning horse called "Gato del Sol") is an oft-cited stalwart of the post-rock movement of the 1990s. Based in Chicago, Gastr del Sol explored idiosyncratic sonic textures, veering from avant-garde punk to atonal songcraft to Musique concrète to composition for small orchestra.

Gastr del Sol - For Soren Müeller 4:18. Gastr del Sol - Even The Odd Orbit 6:51. Gastr del Sol - Easy Company 1:08. Gastr del Sol - Ursus Arctos Wonderfilis 4:44. Gastr del Sol - A Jar of Fat 2:10. Gastr del Sol - Serpentine Orbit 0:44.

With Gastr del Sol, David Grubbs and co-conspirator Bundy K. Brown head off into improvised landscapes both minimal and emotionally charged. The isolated, wandering pianos on "A Jar of Fat" and "Eye Street" toy with the definition of song, paying special attention to repetition, or the lack of it. The entire record is dominated by a loose, wavering melodic gravity that will challenge some, but listeners unimpressed with the many "underground" artists driven more by attitude than honesty and expression will find Serpentine Similar quite refreshing.

Only for completionists (0%). Gastr Del Sol is a rather extreme group: David Grubbs sings and plays guitar; Bundy K. Brown plays bass. In some songs, John McEntire plays percussion.

The Serpentine Similar is the debut studio album of Gastr del Sol, released in June 1993 by TeenBeat Records. The album was re-released on Drag City Records in 1997. These songs were then reworked as quieter, acoustic versions for The Serpentine Similar as Bastro became Gastr del Sol. Track listing. All tracks written by Bundy K. Brown and David Grubbs.
