Travis Laplante and Peter Evans - 'Secret Meeting' (album stream) (premiere)

On Friday, February 5, NNA Tapes will release Secret Meeting, the first collaboration between saxophonist Travis Laplante and trumpeter Peter Evans. And as far as collaborations go, it is a pure one. Both are playing from the hip, running back and forth between peaceful pedal tones and lightening-fast skronk. Stylistically falling somewhere between Laplante's avant-garde super group Little Women and his breathy side-project Battle Trance, Secret Meeting is a sprawling album celebrating "an umbilical cord-like connection" between the two musicians.

TRACK LIST

The Rebel Rockin' Roots of Punk Rock Humor

Humorists have served as the conscience of cultures ever since (and before) court jesters ridiculed omnipotent royalty for its hypocrisy, pomposity, and corruption. Punk continues to fulfill that essential social role in relation to the powers-that-be of the modern world.
