Instru Dash Mental Records presents "Moments and Fragments" , the sophomore LP from music collective #Bloomerangs. The playlist features original music from its members, and includes International Songwriting Competition Jazz category semi-finalist tunes "In Some Shape or Form" and "S Mitchell St".
Honoring the title of the record; the music takes the listener into a journey of multiple dimensions and moods with Jazz being the transporting vehicle. The moments range from the Free Jazz and odd signature explorations in "Catch a Clue", to Latin inspired innuendos in "Untold", and the calming fragments of "Mind your F".
In harmony with the band's intentions "Moments and Fragments" includes a diverse collection of sonic landscapes that snapshots the intent to keep pushing the genre's stylistic lines. Grunge Jazz Etude like piece "Change of Pace" is a clear example of how far the band was willing to go to achieve that goal.
