CD Review: The Headwhiz Consort Moderne Internationale 

Perdido

(mindfryenterprises.com)

Picking up where 2005's Baobob left off, the latest album by this 10-member group — which has its origins in nine countries but is now based in Cleveland — unleashes an avant-garde sound that's downright strange at times. Songs like "A Treat I Do Not Desire" and "Blue Tinge" hint at the exotic, readymade for, say, your next yoga session. From the electric guitar that drives "Tortoise Shell" to the six minutes of desperation in "Who Darkened the Sun," the group brings a different mood and scene to each song. Most of the album is instrumental, with a few rugged lyrics thrown in. Either way, it's filled with welcome WTF moments. — Courtney Kerrigan
