Deep End Shallow (OOYH 005) is keyboardist Curt Sydnor's sound-dream of a working musician living at the confluence of the different styles and music scenes in Brooklyn circa 2016 (Sydnor relocated to Richmond VA in early 2019). Featuring the inventive drumming of Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), as well as saxophonist Caroline Davis (Alula, Lee Konitz), bassist Michael Coltun (Mdou Moctar, Les Rhinocéros), and guitarist Aaron Dugan (Matisyahu), this record is a searing and fun document, veering from psych-jazz to Russian Romanticism to Afrobeat, punctuated by the somber reminder that “all is ever as it used to be.” Musically a synthesis of the diverse groups Sydnor was involved with at the time and inspired by artists like Deerhoof, Marc Ribot, Nels Cline, Julia Holter, Herbie Hancock, and Yonatan Gat, it draws occasional lyrical inspiration from early childhood memories and a dark chapter in the history of Lynchburg Virginia, where Sydnor was raised.
