Incredible Shrinking Band

Stealing Orchestra continues to give away the albums they originally released commercially. The newest free offering is their album, The Incredible Shrinking Band, originally released in 2003 on Zounds/Sabotage.

The album is just what you have come to expect from Stealing Orchestra, instrumental performances with copious samples presented as rock, alternative, free jazz, waltzes, and weirdness. The world is a better place with creative musicians like these infiltrating the music.

Yeah! You might also enjoy Stereogamy (NorteSul, EMI), the first full length album by Stealing Orchestra. The album's tracks run the gamut from cartoony sound collages, like those of The Bran Flakes, to experimental work, like that of Renaldo and the Loaf, to more traditional instrumental compositions.

In reviewing Stealing Orchestra at the time of the Stereogamy release, Cool and Strange Music Magazine wrote, "No matter how off the map Mascarenhas' musical funhouse gets, with things running backward and jumping in at the most inappropriate spots, there is always the semblance of a song.... It's like a soundtrack a spy movie run through a blender."
