Two of the original songs are untitled, their melodic themes are perhaps a shade fuzzy, the band is vigorous but loose.

Outside of that basic description there's not a whole lot left to describe on Directions in Music. It's solid early post-Tortoise post-rock and is something fans of the style (and especially mellow music in general) should definitely appreciate. Maybe what makes the album most historically significant, though, is the band's use of aesthetic's here, rather than the music itself; held as more of a one-off collaboration between friends than a "real" band, the songs are all untitled and the musicians refused to have their pictures taken for use in promotion and album.

Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album. It is at times, as Coltrane’s son Ravi pointed out, surprisingly like a live session in a studio; parts of the music sound geared toward a captive audience.

7 Directions (UIQLP002) by Nkisi, released 18 January 2019 1. I 2. II 3. III 4. IV 5. V 6. VI 7. VII ‘7 Directions’ - is rooted firmly in the African Cosmology of the Bantu-Kongo and in particular the writings of Kongo scholar Dr Kimbwandende Kia Bunseki Fu-Kiau. Musically we think it’s Nkisi’s most singular record to date - explicitly exploring - via 7 hyper-focused hyper-modern tracks - the incredible polyrhythms of congolese percussion music. When we hear before we see, voice and sound waves interplay between consciousness and hallucinations.

STARTING WITH A "giddy-up" rolling rhythm and never letting up on the infectious groove for the entire trip, DIRECTIONS IN MUSIC are yet another fine side project of post-rock mastery by Bundy K. Brown (Tortoise, Gastr del Sol), Doug Scharin (Rex, June of 44, Codeine) and James Warden (40K).Eight songs without titles; tightly woven together producing an invigorating instrumental mood enhancer - introducing new ideas with just paired down guitar, drums, bass and very subtle, spacious, electronic whirlings, in and around solid song constructs. Often at times, a poppier version of Tortoise without the neo-jazz art-rock affectations and time signatures; rooted firmly in delicate melody truly relaxing and uplifting - never entirely embracing an "ambient" realm to work in. No tape manipulations or looping going on (with the exception of Song "6" mid-way falling into a minimal acoustic resonance, then rising again), just the warmth of guitar reverb and echo at a slow enough pace finding the notes evaporating into the background secretly. Song "8" finalizes the record where Song "6"s minimalistic solo acoustic guitar showed up - in brief - ending the record, in brilliant coda.(The dead wax etching Side A: You must start somewhere. Side B: For peace, I started with myself - "Joe Shoe.")
