All songs by the Schimscheimer Family
As if from an actual collection of blood relatives, the Schimscheimer Family Trio’s second album “Broken Home” opens a window into an alternate world—one in which songs become people, sounds describe stories, and music falls beyond categorization. The fake siblings (and their fake uncle) harness a mixture of woodwind, synthesizer, and percussion sounds in creating tuneful odes to their fake relatives, semi-traumatic childhood recollections, and intimidating animals of note.

This album has pushed me ever further into experimental, avant-garde jazz. Thank you Anna from the bottom of my heart! It was arduous picking a favorite track. Torn between Array and Kore I. Jonathan Pryor
