Mount Analog: New Skin

First thought: Tortoise outtakes and rehearsal tapes?--no, no, that's not what it is. It appears to be Tucker Martine's band, w/ appearances by Eyvind Kang (so that's why I perked up a little whenever I heard a violin) and Bill Frisell and so on. Doesn't keep doing the same thing, which I approve of. Lacks specialness, though--even though most of this is pretty composed, I get the same sense from it that I get from second-rate improv records, which is that they're warming up for something better.
