Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Anti-House, featuring guitarist Mary Halvorson, pianist Kris Davis, bassist John Hébert, and drummer Tom Rainey is perhaps saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock’s most New York-centric band. Bert Noglik writes in the liner notes of this third release ‘Roulette of the Cradle’: “The music of this quintet thrives on strong contrasts and the tension they create. The dynamic spectrum is almost taken to its limits, a lot of things are happening simultaneously. Ms. Laubrock calls the shots, always with an ear to the particular expressive potential and sounds of the individual musicians. There is as much a desire for form as for opening up the playing process towards the unpredictable, the unexpected. It is especially the high quality of the musicians contributing to the unmistakable group sound of Anti-House and, at the same time, the powerful individual styles that don’t just meld together but potentiate each other, as well.”
