Chicago-based instrumental group. Their compositions are structured around carefully locked-together repetitive riffs and generate considerable quasi-hypnotic intensity. Psychic Psummer (2009) opens with the deep space tour "Gamm" (the name comes from an obscure Swedish record label); and the album also includes "Encino Man", a version of the 1992 movie Encino Man about a frozen caveman who is brought back to life in modern-day California. The group's third album, Neverendless (2011) includes, distractingly, a track named after sf novelist Adam Roberts. [AR]
