Whether we like this label or not, we’ve all heard of indie classical. Well, this might be the first “Garage Chamber” septet. Ambit (three years in the making and out next week on Cuneiform Records) is the debut album of The Cellar and Point, an all-star band (half of JACK Quartet, a member of Mantra, etc.) spearheaded by drummer Joe Branciforte and guitarist Chris Botta. The album features seven original pieces by Branciforte and Botta as well as arrangements of pieces by György Ligeti and Anton Web
The Cellar and Point is:
- Joe Bergen, vibraphone
- Christopher Otto, violin
- Kevin McFarland, cello
- Terrence McManus, electric guitar
- Rufus Philpot, electric bass
- Christopher Botta, acoustic guitar + banjo
- Joseph Branciforte, drums
We are proud to present the video premiere of “White Cylinder (a),” exclusively on I CARE IF YOU LISTEN!
Pretty intense for a Tuesday, huh?
Ambit is out on October, 14 but you can preorder it now:
