CROSS-POLLINATION CLXVII - TUES NOV 13TH - 7:30-10 PM
LOWRY
AFUCHE

"Alex Lowry's psychedelic neo/anti-folk pop is an offbeat offshoot where the hurdy gurdy man takes us on a twisted magical mystery tour. Hot wired and intense, even in its quieter moments, this is challenging, innovative music that pushes established boundaries with alarming ease." CREATIVE LOAFING, ATLANTA

Named One of the Top Emerging Artists of 2006 THE DELI MAGAZINE, NYC

"Listening to Alexander Lowrys sedated croon on 'Fourth Of July,' its a certain kind of soul that makes itself known. Not fragile, but vulnerable, his voice wavers just a bit in that post-Violent Femmes show of sensitivity. . ." JJ KOCZAN, THE AQUARIAN WEEKLY

Afuche’s revolving cast also currently includes of Mike Brown (upright Bass), Josh Lawrence (Trumpet), Ryan Perrey (Electric Bass), and Charlie Amador (Drums and additional percussion). With an uninhibited energy, Acosta skillfully switches between the Wurlitzer, Clarinet, Drums, and a Maraca while Ryalls exchanges a Tres guitar for a Clarinet, electric Guitar or a wood block. As a whole, the group creates a ramshackle sound that can be as musically fearless as Tom Waits. Tense and subdued as film music and melodic yet dissonant, Afuche displays a passionate energy for creating unique music and putting on a good show.

Carajo Is Worse Than Hell is a self-produced and self-released reaction to the limitations of previous projects. It begins with a klezmer stomp that shifts into an Afro-Beat groove, clashing culture with clamor and keeping the listener alert. “Umm Champ Chemp” is an aptly titled song that jangles in an obscure setting and is written to confuse as well as to entertain. “Gaspar Noe” is a testament to the band’s exuberant creative energy as well as its sense of pop melody. As a whole, this EP is thoughtfully arranged and surpasses all expectations.
