Chicago Reader

Peter Margasak wrote about Midtown Tilt in the Chicago Reader in advance of our show on 3/14:

"His sounds conjure emotions stoked by ephemeral sorts of nostalgia. He’s as much a jazz musician as he is a rock player, and though he’s dug into both traditions he’s definitely found his sweet spot leading the instrumental Desertion Trio...Together they forge a soothing hybrid of post-Crazy Horse grind, Ennio Morricone spaghetti-western ambience, and atmosphere-drenched exotica...

The band’s tunefulness and delicate touch—even during its most punishing passages—have a universal profundity that I’ve been unable to resist."
