Pianist Eric Hirsh, the North Carolina staple we mentioned a few months ago who just released his debut album, Distillation, with his quartet, has just released a second single– “Big Bad Bronto”. It’s a bouncy tune in 11, maintaining the chill that is a constant element in Hirsh’s work, with a lot going for it. Check out the video (which is full of camera wipes, a trick not done often enough for studio recordings) for the tune after the jump and cop Distillation, out now.
