Atem, the third release on Neither/Nor Records by the New York-based trio Earth Tongues, represents a new phase in the ensemble's development of improvised forms. Developed and recorded at a group residency at Brooklyn's Pioneer Works, the album is the group's most confrontational and focused to date, combining a magnified universe of subtle textures and tones with shifting layers delivered in a dense, breathing mass. Atem presents Earth Tongues' group dynamic of impromptu composition in a form that both beckons and overwhelms.
