“Are you ready for some meticulously disjointed free improv? If so you’re in luck, as that’s precisely what the Dutch outfit the Kodian Trio excel at. Their first album I was released earlier this year, and it’s full of the scratchy, clicky difficult listening that we all love. One track that stands apart from the rest of the album is V, which sees the group cut loose with amplification and general skronkiness. It also sees them play a bit more with rock tonalities – Dirk Serries’ electric guitar may be chopping and switching, but every so often there’ll be a phrase that sounds like it might have been played by Mick Ronson. Colin Webster is furious on sax, and Andrew Lisle likewise sounds as if he’s acknowledging the rock influences, right up to the point where everything gets blasted into fragments. Really fun noises.” Cyberinsekt - UK
