Grasshopper, a multifaceted trumpet duo, comprised of Jesse DeRosa and Josh Millrod, don't so much play their instruments, as they do brutally butcher them in an outpouring of drone poems, noisescapes, feedback shrieks and gentle amp hums, portraying as much a direct lineage from Black Flag as they do Stravinsky, Bitches-era Miles Davis or Morton Subotnick. Grasshopper have been described as the sound of "a wolf's heartbeat on ultrasound," "a windspiel made of knives" and "snake charming music made by industrial robots." Basically, these Brooklyn boys take all the "nice" out of the implications of your mental picture of either a friendly garden insect, or a young Kwai Chang Caine. Terrifying sounds, but beautiful too - Wm. Berger
