super nice Downbeat write-up

Further Secret Origins got a super-duper write-up in Downbeat! check it:::

>> Katherine Young, a member of Till By Turning and Anthony Braxton's Falling River Quartet, makes seriously bold leaps for the bassoon on FURTHER SECRET ORIGINS (Porter4039; 46:22) *** 1/2. Although a few tracks employ minor overdubs and some vinyl surface noise, Young produced most of the sounds live, using multiple mics to capture different facets of her notoriously difficult double reed. She makes the most of the unwieldy low-end, using quavering long tones, extreme polyphonics, percussive breath manipulation, and wonderfully striated, sour phrases to construct a music of surprising diversity and richness. << Peter Margasak
