Album Title: Strange Lights and Resolutions
Release Date: June 14, 2005
Genre: Jazz/Rock
A little bit jazz, a little bit rock, and a little bit funk, Kobayashi's Strange Lights and Resolutions is not for casual music listeners. Comprised of seven musicians playing 18 different instruments plus one vocalist, the Montreal band has an innumerable amount of influences pounding down on their sound. Forcing the soprano sax, turntables, Roland XP-30 synthesizer, and flute to live in harmony, it's safe to say that Kobayashi are making music that doesn't sound like much of what else is out there. It takes a bit of patience to get through the nine tracks of the group's debut full-length, as the shortest is just under five minutes, with most hitting the seven minute mark. But for all the sonic experimentation Kobayashi messes about with, it's definitely worth ploughing through all 70 minutes of Strange Lights in one sitting.
