Nublu Orchestra Nublu Orchestra Conducted by Butch Morris
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Nublu
If Nublu Orchestra sounds like a bunch of musicians were tossed into a room and told to start playing... well, maybe that's what happened. Composed of members from a range of bands (from Brazilian Girls to Forro in the Dark), Nublu merges blippy electronics with improv jazz (the real stuff, not diluted) with instruments and melodies surfacing and receding. The result can be overly intellectual (their bio includes a long-winded explanation of Butch Morris' "conduction"), but when it comes together, as on "Here Comes the Man," it sounds beautifully unrestrained and genuinely new.
