Flygmaskin is a winged engine that escaped from Sebastien Wilmyns’s head a few years back. Its poetical acrobatics are displayed in the new album “Fall”. This unusual quartet blends jazz and rhythm, rhythm and enrapture, taking up classical music and souring steadily. The beat of the drums in the temples. As articulations beneath the skin, there is a softness in the double-bass. Expiration of accordions, swelling of the lungs from torso and fingertips, and the speed of the piano, as a dance, proud and fragile, gliding between silences. If ever one was required, “Fall” is the proof that music can alight as a bird or an autumn leaf with as much precision as smoothness. From bandcamp
