Big City Orchestra is a communal, shoe-gazing noise collective from San Francisco, Calif., with a pretty varied and large output. Side A is a pastoral, collective improvisation where BCO plays repetitive, spacey ethnic music with percussion, flute and female vocals a la Gong. Side B is a darker affair, with droning electronic, low rumbles and a liberal use of reverb. On this ten inch, Big City Orkestre were: Ninah Pixie, Jesse Burson, Kerri Pidnow, Peter Martin, Melissa Margolis, Mike Dringenberg and Das.
