(review via Arts Extract Podcast 07/01/13 >)

” Watercourse Quartet showcases the willfully unsettling improvisations of four players who’ve each left a distinct mark on Madison music. Several of the Quartet’s members play in the ambitious avant-jazz band Lovely Socialite Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps […]; bassist Ben Willis has played behind Anna Vogelzang. Cellist/multi-instrumentalist Brian Grimm has recently played some live sets with Julian Lynch, and lately has composed everything from original scores for Madison theater companies to the cracked instrumental hip-hop of his project Brain Grimmer. Grimm and his brother A.J., record dense compositions under the name The Brothers Grimm. […] the album mixes cello, upright bass, classical guitar, and Chinese stringed instruments in sometimes-scraping, playfully obtuse pieces.
