NHIC Records announces the release of the new CD Ground Waves by Electric NHIC on November 1st, 2012.

CD Release Concert at Firehouse12 on Saturday December 1st


Electric NHIC evolved from the high energy avant-funk of Mayhem Circus Electric, a signature grouping of the New Haven Improvisers Collective. MCE's well-received CD, Lubricity, was praised by the New Haven Advocate for its tight post funk grooves and called fun and relentlessly heavy creative jazz by Cadence magazine. Gapplegate Music compared it to Electric Miles Davis with the jagged angularity of classic Captain Beefheart and an obvious sense of fun. In support of Lubricity, MCE took the music to rock clubs like Toads Place, and festivals around New England in addition to top jazz and new music venues like Firehouse12 and the Buttonwood Tree. The group's members come from various creative backgrounds and the music's focus naturally expanded beyond the initial high energy stomp. New tunes crept in as the group took a broader view incorporating electronica, progressive rock, moody modal melody and laid back electric jazz. The Circus and the Mayhem became only part of the story, so the band adopted the name Electric NHIC.

The new CD, Ground Waves, captures all of these elements in an exciting collection of new music from the laid back electric jazz of “For JZ” and the prog-tinged “Water on the Brain” to the mayhem Inspired “Make them Circles Concentric”. NHIC guitarist Bob Gorry said “It was exciting to watch the new music come together with all of these unexpected new contributions. The recorded end result seems obvious now, but the evolution of the sound was quite a ride and great fun. I’m looking forward to hearing what we do next.”

The group continues to evolve adding the magical chapman stick of Brett Bottomley on the low end and the insightful trumpet and electronics of Nick DiMaria up top. Come get the full treatment and find out where Electric NHIC is today.
