Larval Discography of CDs


Obedience Obedience CD (2003)
CD $18.15 Buy It  Details
Larval albums The avant-garde guitarist Bill Brovold's 2003 album is a coherent and focused series of guitar-oriented pieces, augmented at times by Zeena Perkins' harp playing. "Last Ditch" is reminiscent of a summit between early-1970s Brian Eno and the 21st-century Canadian minimalist experimental band Godspeed You! Black Emperor, "Where Bullet Meets Flesh" is a gentle piano meditation, and "One Day I Just Kept on Walking" generates almost unbearable tension with its continuous feedback drone. Additional personnel includes: Zeena Perkins (harp). Personnel: Bill Brovold (guitar, piano, vibraphone, drums); Toby Summerfield (guitar); Zeena Parkins (harp); Kurt Zimmerman (violin); Genevieve Padgett (cello); Dan Bennett (saxophone); Greg Courtney (drums). Audio Mixer: Bill Brovold. Recording information: Koko ...
Predator or Prey Predator or Prey CD (2000)
CD Check Availability  Details
Larval music CDs Predator or Prey?, the third Larval CD and the group's second release on Knitting Factory Records, is a characteristically solid effort that continues in the direction set by Larval 2. The band's best tunes are designed like puzzles, fitting ostinatos, short riffs, choppy chords and blasts of noise together into a single dense mass while still retaining the sharpness and clarity of each individual instrument. "One Last Fight" (misprinted on the CD sleeve as "One Last Flight") has the classic large-group Larval sound, with honking sax and crunching guitars in crazy counterpoint leading into a sustained barrage of high-distortion strumming that makes Robert Fripp on King ...

Larval CD discography After serving something of an avant-garde guitar apprenticeship with the musician and composer Rhys Chatham in New York in the 1980s, the guitarist Bill Brovold formed the equally experimental band Larval in Detroit in the mid 1990s. This double CD, which got its title after Brevold survived five heart attacks within a year, is the band's fifth release. After the relatively staid "It Was a Puny Plan" and the positively lyrical "The Hospital Visit," the band sets out for uncharted territory on "One Step Forward, Two Steps Back," while "One Last Fight" is an apocalyptic rant, and "Half a Bubble Off" is a frantic nightmare jig. Larval/Bill ...

CD Check Availability  Details
Larval discography Larval is an avant-jazz and experimental rock orchestra of shifting personnel that exists to incarnate the visionary music of its one-man organizing principle, Bill Brovold. This art rock fusion of relentless, climax-building guitar and percussion rhythm lines with skronking horns and mood-coloring violins is a powerful mix of traditional tone coloring and contemporary approaches of atavistic, neo-primitive beat music. Seventeen musicians are credited with contributing to the production of this recording, really an interrelated piece best conceived of as a whole. Brovold's potent creations merited the attention and praise of John Zorn previously, and 2 continues a tradition of devilish instrumental rock. The album opens up ...
Larval Larval CD (1997)
CD Check Availability  Details (Import) Japan
Larval songs Guitar, guitar, and more guitar: that's the dominant sound of the first incarnation of Larval heard on the band's eponymous debut CD. The axes belong to Bill Brovold, Erik Gustafson, and Beth Wilusz, and the way they clash and smash comes courtesy of some ideas Brovold brought to Detroit from his no wave New York days. Like no wave experimental guitarists Rhys Chatham (in whose band he played for five years) and Glen Branca, Brovold is a man who likes weird tunings, thick sound layers, ringing overtones, hypnotic ostinatos, and relentless beats that hammer listeners into submission. Larval is instrumental New York no wave transplanted to ...
