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."
