Hex Breaker Quintet+Mark Morgan
One of the more stunning configurations to come from the ever-burbling Brooklyn noise scene is the Hex Breaker Quintet, a quartet comprised of the trumpet duo Grasshopper and mystic synth-forgers Telecult Powers. An easy comparison is to the chopped-up jams of late '60s Miles Davis, but the four push further into abstraction, a distant sweetness, like the vintage sci-fi animation that Telecult's Mr. Matthews sometimes projects during their sets. Opening with a solo set is Mark Morgan, one-third of Sightings and one of the city's unsung guitar deconstructivists. With Tiger Hatchery & Weasel Walter.
