The hits never stop around here. Go to your local record store and demand Eyvind Kang's "VIRGINAL CO-ORDINATES" the beautifully crafted full length from the multi talented Violinist. This release was originally limitedly released by our friends at Angelica in Italy. Kang oversees a 22 piece orchestra and the release includes vocals and electronics from Mike Patton. You may recognize Eyvind's name from his work with Laurie Anderson, Sun City Girls, etc. or from his 5 other solo releases; a few released on Tzadik. There is a reason that Kang has been part of 50 different recordings in the last 10 years. "The dude has chops."
