Syrinx :: Tumblers From The Vault (1970 — 1972)

A closer look at one of our favorite releases from last year: Tumblers from the Vault (1970 — 1972), the compiled recorded output (and beyond) of 70s Canadian trio Syrinx, whose boundary leaping music was lovingly excavated by experimental New York label RVNG Intl.
