Here’s a slight diversion from Chapel’s usual experimental-music menu. Bay Area duo Grex purvey a freaky jazz-rock sound that surges and feints in surprising ways. Karl Evangelista’s guitar squawks and sizzles like a Fred Frith and Sonny Sharrock death match while drummer/keyboardist/vocalist Rei Scampavia keeps the tempo jittery and the tonal palette vividly splotchy. There’s a wonky Ralph Records vibe on releases like Monster Music that’s more MX-80 Sound than the Residents. Seattle’s Citizens Band are a jazz trio featuring some of the city’s boldest sonic explorers: drummer Chris Icasiano (also in Bad Luck), saxophonist Ivan Arteaga (Table & Chairs catalyst), and bassist Jeff Johnson.
