'Heavy', the new EP from composer William Ryan Fritch is a bombastic and ever-moving work that draws equally from the forward-thinking arrangements of modern chamber music as it does the snarling, imposing presence of Garage Rock. The whirring barrage of sounds and textures that percolate through it’s six songs are both wildly varying and effortlessly assimilated.

Bass Clarinets and French Horns growl and moan in concert with bursts of analog synths and electric guitars. Thundering primitive rhythms crunch and grind while strings, harps and flutes scurry about in the wake of each percussive stomp and crack. Using only live, acoustic, and un-sequenced instrumentation, Fritch contorts and bastardizes familiar styles and idioms much like electronic musicians do through sampling; by oversimplifying their forms, altering their tone and texture, and tangling them together in irregular and complex ways.

This EP is the most recent installment in Lost Tribe Sound’s ever expanding 'Leave Me Sessions Subscription Series'; an endeavor that will see 10 albums of Fritch’s music (more than 6 hours of new music) released in a span of less than nine months. In addition to this ambitious spate of records, the long awaited release of his collaborative project with drummer Jon Mueller (Volcano Choir), Death Blues 'Ensemble' is slated for release by the label, Rhythmplex on September 23rd, 2014.

'Heavy' is also included as a bonus download card to those purchase the Deluxe LP Book of 'Revisionist' (williamryanfritch.bandcamp.com/album/revisionist), the epic final installment of William Ryan Fritch's Subscription Series.
