Hypnotic grooves meet improvised jams on “Chruh” from Guelph, Ontario’s Bolete. In and out of shadows, this avant-garde jazz trio tiptoes around a muted film noir scene, while sneaking in dramatic crescendos that resemble the sharp edges of German Expressionism. Shapeshifting from brooding cello to soulful guitar, the drums help ground the piece between surges of twisty, math-rock riffs and heavy syncopated stabs.
