This release is a 2017 Record Store Day exclusive title. It will be available in person at Drift on Saturday 22nd April.

Sold out on vinyl for six years, Thrill Jockey are delighted to present a limited re-issue of Chicago Underground Duo's ‘Boca Negra’ album for Record Store Day 2016.

Chicago Underground Duo has been part of a new generation of music improvisers that emerged in Chicago in the 1990’s. Made up of cornetist Rob Mazurek (Exploding Star Orchestra, Isotope 217) and drummer Chad Taylor (Marc Ribot, Iron and Wine), ‘Boca Negra’ is the duo’s fifth release, originally released in 2010.

As with the previous four Duo records it contains both composed and improvised music. The recording contains powerful grooves along with ambient sound structures, folk song simplicity and polyrhythmic bursts of energy with lyrical melodic vignettes. It also combines high energy music with slow moving ballads. ‘Boca Negra’ was recorded in Sao Paulo, Brazil at Rocha Studios making it the first record not created in Chicago.

Limited to 500 copies, pressed on virgin vinyl and packaged in an uncoated stock jacket with paste-on photo art card and free download coupon.
