Jason Urick – Fussing & Fighting from Thrill Jockey Records on Vimeo.

Unlike “Husbands”‘ gentle washes of ambience, the songs on “Fussing & Fighting” are Urick’s first in a very long time to incorporate any sort of rhythmic element, however simple. This time Urick made a conscious effort to slowly steer away from the experiments with density that were utilized on “Husbands”, opening up his music sonically and allowing things to breathe. As with “Husbands”, all three of the original tracks were recorded by Urick himself at the famous Floristree Space in Baltimore. The fourth and final piece on “Fussing & Fighting” is Matthew Papich of Ecstatic Sunshine’s take on the title track, recorded with engineer Craig Bowen.

Jason Urick is highly regarded in the Baltimore music and arts scene, through his work in WZT Hearts at the Floristree Space where he has curated many shows and festivals. “Fussing and Fighting” follows his solo album debut Husbands, and finds Urick pushing his music farther forward with new experiments in rhythm and sonic space.

Three tracks on this 12″ EP were spawned during the period just after Urick completed his work on Husbands. After not listening to little else as he finished that album, Urick dove deep into some old faves, including Pita’s Get Out and the Gas catalog, and also became obsessed with videos of London reggae linchpin Jah Shaka. The three compositions included on this 12″ are experiments in trying to combine these influences into Urick’s working methods established for Husbands – manipulating sounds and samples on his laptop, mostly recorded using its built in microphone.
