Chicago’s free music trio Good Willsmith and Tokyo—based Abstract pop duo Dustin Wong & Takako Minekawa have teamed up on a new album, titled Exit Future Heart. 

The album follows three Good Willsmith albums released on Umor Rex and three albums by Dustin Wong & Takako Minekawa on Thrill Jockey. It was recorded live at home in Chicago over the course of one night when Wong and Minekawa passed through on tour, and showcases a program of spontaneous compositions that flow through mutated tropes of rock music, focused ambient/kosmische synthesis, and expanses of raw textural sculpting. We’re told that “the singular performance styles and improvisatory gestures of each member of the quintet fuse into a delicate interplay charged more by open spaces and deep listening than by overload or abandon.”
