In regards to overall mood, Fetch echoes the trio's debut: all shadowy hues and lurking atmospherics that betray von Oswald's roots in post-punk's dystopian temperament. These qualities are particularly effective on the opener "Jam," an artfully syncopated workout with Sebastian Studnitzky on trumpet and Marc Muellbauer on bass (both guest musicians help make it the most Davis-flavored piece the trio has yet to record).

Moritz Von Oswald Trio’s third studio album, Fetch, continues the expansion of the minimal techno group’s improvisational template. Considering the group’s previous releases, Fetch is more focused than the hazy, drawn-out Horizontal Structures, and it adds an array of sounds that weren't present on the stripped-down exercise Vertical Ascent. Fetch finds the Trio still using the ess tracking that has served them well.

Moritz Von Oswald Trio.

Fetch further cements the Moritz Von Oswald Trio's status as a unique voice in modern electronic music - as supple, intuitive and alive as the most exploratory of jazz. Recorded in August 2011, Fetch finds von Oswald, Loderbauer and Ripatti in a darker and more driving mood than on previous albums. As with their previous recordings, at the roots of the Trio's third studio album lie the same concerns which informed von Oswald's pioneering work with Mark Ernestus as Basic Channel, Maurizio and Rhythm & Sound. Many of the sonic signatures persist - silvery clouds of reverb, heavily effected dub chords, the grounding rumble of sub-bass, motifs repeated and twisted to every angle. Fetch's second track Dark is a monolithic steppers' in slo-mo, recalling Rhythm & Sound at their densest, most dread.

The Moritz Von Oswald Trio invites you to play FETCH, as they craft another album of abstract jazz, electronics and dub. The opening track, "Jam," centers on ghostly trumpet blares as a spare rhythm and a few strums of bass hold their ground until they take over entirely, allowing the slow movement of "Dark" to conquer all. "Club" offers a more steady beat, though it probably won't be on heavy rotation on a dancefloor anytime soon as it traffics in drifting abstraction. And "Yangissa" closes the album out with an African-inspired rhythm and horns that reside quietly in the background. As the track develops, however, deeper tones infiltrate and the mood shifts into outer space. An intriguing work.
