'Erasmus' is a bit special, new from the erstwhile Pixel bassist and singer Ellen Andrea Wang along with UK guitarist Rob Luft and Sweden-born drummer Jon Fält.

Drawn from Closeness due in September there is a flowing open quality to the ensemble sound as it traverses electronica, spacey jazz-rock and much more with shards of melody shaped around a constantly shifting, compelling beat.

The album includes versions of Ornette Coleman's 'Lonely Woman' and Pat Metheny's 'This Is Not America'. Out on Ropeadope.
