“For me it’s the most free we have been,” says singer and bandleader Mica Levi in a press release, which also states that much of the songs on the new album started out as fragments, and took shape after improvisation in the studio. And those fragments largely came out of a long jam session that drummer Marc Pell recorded with a hand-held recorder.
