Single Minded: Trioscapes - "Blast Off" (Live)

Between the Buried and Me is a band that I have not really listened to all that much. I know I should, and I want to, it just hasn't happened yet. What does that have to do with Trioscapes? Well, it is the brain child of BTBAM's bass player, Dan Briggs. He got together with Walter Fancourt (saxophone) and Matt Lynch (drums) for what was supposed to be something of a one off project, but has seemingly turned into something more. Now, I have stumbled across them, more specifically I saw this live studio performance of the song "Blast Off" from the forthcoming album Separate Realities.

I have to admit, this is kind of awesome. I don't even know what to call it. It is instrumental fusion, I guess. Perhaps jazz metal? Maybe experiments of free form music? I don't know, whatever it is, I like it. I am looking forward to hearing more from these guys. This video was, obviously, shot live in the studio and captures a strong performance that shows this trio locked in with each other. There is some really strong suff here, they play off each other and the song has great build to it as it progresses. Fantastic stuff.

What do you think?
