Of Sound Mind: Force Majeure/ Contemplare Meilora/ Stream of Consciousness

Chuck Ho and Doug Baldwin are Canadian and together are Wyld...Of Sound Mind. The music on these three albums, all of which are available from the link below touches on rock, jazz, electronic, metal and general weirdness. The band describes their work as, "sonic paintings," which is a pretty apt description. The listener never quite knows where things will go next. Take "Tour of Duty" for instance which is from Stream of Consciousness, at times the keyboards sound like a fairground and it all sounds a bit twee, and then it appears that the demon child of Ray Manzarek takes over and the song becomes something else entirely. Therein lies the nub of Of Sound Mind, like Falstaff, expect the unenexpected.
