Super Numeri: Great Aviaries by AAJ Staff, published on May 12, 2003. But don't get caught up in the idea that Super Numeri is derivative or stale: not so. Regardless of its usually sonorous tone, Great Aviaries has some moments of real tension-for example, the military square waves of "Beaks. And a rarified form indeed. Visit Ninja Tune and Super Numeri on the web. Track Listing: The Electric Horse Garden; When The Sun Dials; Beaks; Otter's Pool; Leisure Lakes; The Ember Love; Classic British Ponds; Flaurent Carmin.

Based in Liverpool, the abstract avant-garde collective Super Numeri explores a fusion of experimental and rock allied to innovators as widespread as Miles Davis and Can. The group was organized by ts Pop Levi, Karl Webb, and Snap Ant - who, between them, cover a full dozen instruments ranging from Farfisa to kalimba to viola to sitar. After recruiting ten or so more players, they recorded Great Aviaries and released the record through Ninja Tune in 2003.

Great Aviaries, their debut for Ninja Tune, won't immediately impress many listeners; it opens with eight minutes of fusion noodling, and most of the songs don't resolve themselves. Multiple listens reveal much more going on, though.
