Description from tinhorn planet:
open windows is the third release in a month for the gifted children!

this 7-song EP packs a ton into a mere 11 minutes:

the title track's simple, repeating piano line ends up crashing into a cinematic wall of distorted bass, drums and saxophones to set the stage for the rest of the EP. there's also a completely re-recorded version of 'a forest', with its crescendo of delayed guitars, pianos and mandolins; 'rescate', a starkly pretty song about lost potential; noisy mini-anthem 'here comes the flood'; a sweet piano/voice/upright song, 'transcription (a certain sweetness)' and much more...

open windows, filled with many different ideas and yet completely coherent as a whole, ranks among the best releases from the gifted children.
the players:

aaron boucher
brett dreyer
jeff suszczynski
bill trautman
