Girls and God/Tres Gone, Experimental Split 7"
The Experimental Split features two amazing noise/improvisational jazz acts. One is East Coast; one is West Coast. One is super old school; one is very literally New School. On Side A, Girls and God takes us through a contemplative doughnut-rich four-part song cycle of avant garde electric guitar and vocal harmonies that recall recent work by David Byrne and Brian Eno. Girls and God is NYC guitarist and composer David Scanlon's solo project. You might know him as one of the main forces behind Killer BOB, or from one of his curatorial and performance stints at John Zorn's performance space, The Stone. On Side B, longtime Portlanders Tres Gone team up with vocalist and storyteller extraordinaire Jennifer Robin for the wild and wildly entertaining "The Ballad of Rose with No Clothes and Dean's Sugary Cream Doughnut." Tres Gone, formed by members of the Gone Orchestra, is all-star team of Portland's 40-and-over noise scene, featuring Mike Mahaffay, John Jensen, Mike Lastra, Eric Hausmann and Scott Steele. Let's get experimental!
