The experimental post-rock duo Blues Control formed in Queens in 2003. But since 2009, the band has called Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley home. The new digs have inspired quieter, more jazz-inclined explorations for keyboardist Leah Cho and Russ Waterhouse (guitar, synth, tapes), which have resulted in a new record -- Valley Tangents.
The songs on the six-track release meander through various strains of psych, prog and industrial rock; through Latin and smooth jazz; and through New Age and electronic music.
