From Roulette NYC:

TARTAR LAMB is an avant-electroacoustic band hailing from New York City, led by composer Toby Driver, who has performed and recorded with contemporary geniuses such as Trey Spruance (Secret Chiefs 3, Mr. Bungle), G. Stuart Dahlquist (Burning Witch, ASVA), and Randall Dunn (Sunn0)), Master Musicians of Bukkake). Their hallucinatory music has its roots in doom-goth, progressive rock, and new age, and has combined these influences with their experiences in the modern classical and avant-jazz worlds of downtown New York to create a completely unique, complex, heartbreaking, and meticulously composed genreless sound all their own.  On October 20th at Roulette, TARTAR LAMB will be performing their 2010 four-movement suite, “Polyimage of Known Exits,” a terrifying take on euthanasia and regret. “Polyimage…” features heavy electric bass, piles of delay pedals, brutal noise, processed woodwinds, demented melodies, and haunted vocals in glacial freefall around the galactic moebius of Kronos. Following this, Driver and the members of Tartar Lamb will premiere new material in a similar vein.
