C.J. Boyd, Killick

Bassist and composer C.J. Boyd has taken giant steps to make his art his life—a musician without borders or, for that matter, a permanent dwelling to call his own, he’s been “on perpetual tour since March 2008,” according to his Bandcamp page—and his all-enveloping, meditative music suggests devotion and transience, a noise both earthy and ionospheric. The wonderful Precariat, released late last year via Joyful Noise, is chock-full of swirling, swarming, loop-based goodness, seismic black-blue sounds designed for late-late-night, altered-state listening, though they’ll sound fine early in the evening, too. Prolific local soundscaper Killick Hinds also performs.
