Not to be confused with Scottish Britpop flash-in-the-pan tykes Whiteout , White Out is Lin Culbertson and Tom Surgal, two fans of New York’s free jazz and no wave scenes who met at a Big Black gig at CBGB 20 years ago and have been journeying to the outer reaches ever since. They return to Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace! Label for this, their fourth album, after stepping out with ATP Recordings for 2005’s China Is Near. Senso continues that record’s move away from jazzier structures towards abstraction, but whereas China Is Near featured six tracks of differing moods, here there are only two tracks, each filing a disc of its own.
