The Best Splits, Compilations & Collaborations of 2015

"Colonial Donuts pairs a couple of singular instrumentalists to dazzling effect. Bill Orcutt, once the driving force of Harry Pussy, wields the guitar with little regard for convention, conjuring metallic timbres with an inimitable picking style; and fellow Bay Area player Jacob Felix Heule, familiar to the improvised music community, proves similarly expressive on the drum kit, which sounds locomotive or else wild and clamorous. Together on Colonial Donuts, they articulate a new vernacular altogether."
