Dexterous algorithmic progressively calculating and quite smooth vibes here from Troyka, an experimental British trio who will release their third studio album ‘Ornithophobia’ soon. “Life Was Transient” is almost so eclectic that it’s opaque in genre. Trip hop slips and glitches, virtuoso guitar precision, underlying proggish organs and airy unidentifiable sounds enter and leave. The off kilter semi-funky nerdy guitar break with jazzy drums is a delight. It’s messy and disjointed yet feels like a perfect atmosphere is captured here somehow.
