Opposite Day

Space Taste Race Part 1 (Future Banana Replacement)

After delivering the definitive alternate score to Tron with 2011's Reindeer Flotilla, Austin prog-rock trio Opposite Day turns its sci-fi eye to outer space. Co-produced by Dan Rathbun of Oakland-based avant-rock troupe Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Space Taste Race Part 1 features three polyrhythmic epics driven by bassist Greg Yancey, whose carnivorous style reconciles Tony Levin with Les Claypool. The resulting roller-coaster ride won't exactly soothe the faint of heart. ***
