Basement video sessions are all the rage these days (see: Nigel Godrich, Juan et al). So in furtherance of that trend, rather than producing a glossy “proper” video, Martin Dosh keeps it real underground with this live jam from his basement studio as the official clip for “Capture The Flag,” from his forthcoming Wolves and Wishes LP. Martin’s always caught our ear for his solo projects, his compositional good graces, and his multi-instrumental contributions to people like Andrew Bird, so this is a treat. We get to Dosh doing his multi-instrumental thing, trigging loops, running through the spiraling keyboard lines, topping it off with his controlled and jazz-damaged live drumming. You won’t find percussive pockets that run any deeper. We sorta love this guy.
That’s Mike Lewis fleshing it out on the sax, bass, and et ceterals. “Capture The Flag” is the last cut on the forthcoming ten-track LP (which features guest work from Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, the Bad Plus’s David King, and of course Andrew Bird). This is track 3, in case you missed it last time:
