Acid Mothers Temple, Clang Quartet, Phantom Family Halo

When: Sat., May 5, 9:30 p.m. 2012

Proclaiming the excellence of one album by sprawling Japanese pan-everything psychedelic collective Acid Mothers Temple seems nearly as pointless as describing the radiant color or the geometric precision of a double-yellow line running the length of a country road. For the last decade-plus, the band and its members—in various permutations and collaborations—have been one of the most productive outfits in the world, constantly pushing for new ways to get weird, be that far-out Zappa tributes, Terry Riley compositions or free-mind, free-form explosions. But the new Son of a Bitches Brew not only features one of the best titles and covers of the young music year, it also finds Acid Mothers Temple wading through the legacy of Miles Davis' fusion unit with a meditative reverence and spastic unease. Intricate and wide-eyed, Son of a Bitches Brew is a sterling reminder that Acid Mothers Temple—in spite of their ostensible lack of filter or focus—are nothing if not daring. With Clang Quartet and Phantom Family Halo. —Grayson Currin
