"If one were dim enough to go about explaining the new double LP from Hexlove/Faulouah by pointing up parallels between it and the future-thinking music which has surely influenced its creator, I imagine the task wouldn't be too daunting. One may first notice that Free Jazz From Slavery is awash in the sublimely complex percussion patterns of 20th century composers like Harry Partch, Eugene Kurtz, and Iannis Xenakis. Or one might wonder if Zac Nelson, the man in the cockpit of this thing, hadn't been listening to Another Green World since he was in the womb. And certainly it wouldn't be a stretch to say that the jibing spirit of early-'80s Pere Ubu experimentation is all over the more flippant efforts like 'Don't Say I Didn't Warm Yah' and the watery blurb that opens the record, 'Aztec vs. Dolphin'."
