Spyn Reset spring out of the Denny Way Music School on Capitol Hill, a house where bassist/guitarist Evan McPherson lives and hosts Thursday-night improv jams with a dedicated core of local musicians and those just happening to pass by/through the area. (Members of Moby Grape, Heart, and Industrial Revelation have dropped in over the last couple of years.) The players in Spyn Reset—who also include keyboardist YASU and drummer Pierson Martin—possess a fluid finesse with funk, jazz, and fusion maneuvers. There’s a slickness here, but it doesn’t come off as sterile virtuosity. Spyn Reset apply their elite technique to create songs that are at once structurally challenging and melodically accessible—a difficult feat. Now they’re billing themselves as an “electro progrock” band, which makes me think of Herbie Hancock and Dr. Patrick Gleeson jamming on ARPs and Moogs with the florid and propulsive attack of Gentle Giant or Passport. Let us hope this is the case. DAVE SEGAL
