The unique way the GoGo Penguin trio blend their acoustic instruments and electronica has attracted fans of indie music and improv alike. The Mancunian band's new album may draw on their V2.0 (2014) and Man Made Object (first record for Blue Note in 2016) albums but it takes them to uncharted territory. The names of the Manchester trio's albums say everything about their intentions. A Humdrum Star is borrowed from a text by the astrophysicist Carl Sagan. A mix of the intimate and immeasurable is how you could describe GoGo Penguin's latest album. The incredible atmospheres that the music trio manage to create owe as much to how they explore electronica and jazz as to their classical training.
Line-up : Chris Illingworth (p), Nick Blacka (cb), Rob Turner (dms)
