The current versions of Ken Vandermark's project Powerhouse Sound is an all-Chicago configuration. On this vinyl double-LP, the quartet rework much of the material from the excellent first album Oslo/Chicago: Breaks from 2007, with the same bass-heavy sound (this is Vandermark's dub reggae project) and driving funk characteristic of much of Vandermark's work, but perhaps a little more under control than on Breaks. Very strong - a band that truly lives up to its name.
