Charles Hoffman Attack On Keyboard Mountain. The hypercompositionalism of '72 prog with manic punk energy. If Fetal Pig did Yes covers we still wouldn't pull it off anywhere near this well Favorite track: Expo '67.

"SENNA by Mahogany Frog" is the group's sixth full-length release. Lush with soaring synth-scapes, waves of blistering guitar feedback and sound-art segments consisting of field recordings, tape collage and analogue electronically-generated sounds, it is easily their heaviest and most challenging record to date. Often the music is hot and gritty, capturing the power of the band's live performance: the rhythm section throttles forward fiercely, laying a foundation for rapidly shifting melodic themes and sounds. At times the material is exploratory and dramatic, displaying layers of MIDI-controlled sequencers, razor-crisp glitch-beats, moody tonal washes and infectious grooves. The orchestration on "SENNA" is largely mysterious, with highly overdriven, reverb-drenched synths, guitars and electronics trading roles and smoothly and swiftly. Along with the enthusiasm and tonal proficiency of engineer Jean Paul Peters', Mahogany Frog have created a cinematic art-rock masterpiece that aims to re-evaluate the conventional roles of instruments and how they contribute to a broader composition.
