Here Is The News

> Greater Than is feverishly (forgive the pun) working around the social distancing virus stuff to finish The Recidivist...we just had to go back almost to the drawing board on the last unfinished track (a very timely little ditty called Who Wants The World That You Describe?), so we're hoping October?? November?? release, which should push back the still long-awaited Karee Karau EP all the way to year's end or beyond. As a teaser, we have made available in our archive section a recently unearthed Karee Karau improv called Angespannte, recorded at some indeterminate time in the distant past. Also, check out our most recently released video Garage Collage. Be careful out there, stay safe from the virus and from the rampant insanity, thanks for visiting and listening!

THE LAST PLACE (Improv August 7th 2005)

> GREATER THAN

This is an excerpt from the sixth of six hour-long improvisations recorded in the summer of 2005 which were used in the making of THINGS ARE REALLY GOOD AS THEY REALLY SHOULD BE and THE RECIDIVIST. This one was a more ambient-oriented improv, with the recurring theme lifted from Krich’s glockenspiel line in The Last Place from THE BABY.
