Golden Arm Trio
The Tick-Tock Club
Shamrock

Composer Graham Reynolds’ Golden Arm ensemble, which is decidedly not a trio, sounds delightfully quirky in this short but sweet cinematically oriented set. It’s a song cycle of sorts, with recurring motifs popping up in unexpected places as the music careens from tense, string-led chase scenes to found-sound collages, somber Shostakovich tributes and old-school “crime jazz” romps that would make Lalo Schifrin proud. Somehow it all fits together, skipping along like the oddball soundtrack to some improbable cult film.
