Iiro Rantala New Trio on YouTube

I found this video of the Iiro Rantala New Trio via some videos of the beatboxer Felix Zenger.

The guitar player, Marzi Nyman, is obviously completely insane (that first solo from 0:18-0:24 sounds like a digital squirrel dying in a blender.) And a trio consisting of multi-genre piano, avant garde electric guitar, and beatbox is decidedly odd. And the first 1:30 of the oddly-titled song seems extremely appropriately-titled. And then somehow, someway…

It mostly works for me (minus the guitar tone), especially from 4:00 onward. I’ve been whistling the melodies for most of the day. File under: not really my thing, but I’m sort of glad it exists.
