NEW EP XXXX BITTER IRONY OUT NOW
THROUGH ART AS CATHARSIS
Milton Man Gogh's new EP, 'XXXX Bitter Irony' – a virtuosic experimental jazz record with hints of prog, metal, deconstructionism and metre all in one.
The follow-up to their previous release Stress to Impress, XXXX Bitter Irony again reinforces the band’s love for Meshuggah, Donny McCaslin, Aphex Twin and Bela Bartok through fusing these influences into their jazz. With the prestige of training with renowned composer and drummer Mark Guiliana, along with a support slot next to USA electronic duo Knower at the Brisbane International Jazz Festival, Milton Man Gogh has rapidly become one of the Australian jazz sphere’s must-see acts.
XXXX Bitter Irony’s release comes off the tail end of excellent critical recognition for Milton Man Gogh’s Stress to Impress – earning the band a nomination for Best Young Jazz Artist at the Australian Jazz Awards (the BELLS) and a highly commended nod at the Queensland Music Awards.
Needless to say that whatever wild calculations Australia’s greatest avant-bogan jazz trio are throwing into their music, they’re throwing them in there perfectly. XXXX Bitter Irony is a staunch reinforcement of that.
Milton Man Gogh’s 'XXXX Bitter Irony' is out now on Art As Catharsis.
