With Gastr del Sol, David Grubbs and co-conspirator Bundy K. Brown head off into improvised landscapes both minimal and emotionally charged. The isolated, wandering pianos on "A Jar of Fat" and "Eye Street" toy with the definition of song, paying special attention to repetition, or the lack of it. The entire record is dominated by a loose, wavering melodic gravity that will challenge some, but listeners unimpressed with the many "underground" artists driven more by attitude than honesty and expression will find Serpentine Similar quite refreshing.
