Sha’s Feckel has no interest in the jazz status quo. For its sophomore album Feckel for Lovers, the Swiss quartet has chosen to emphasize the rock element of its jazz-rock leanings, amping up the energy and crunch by several factors. It’s music inspired by its raucous standing room audiences, but there’s plenty for the chin-stroking set, too. The band is part of a new wave of Swiss acts stretching the boundaries of pattern-based, minimalist-inspired music deep into the expansive rock realm. Feckel is also a band with a huge sense of humor. Considering it titled its first album Greatest Hits, it won’t be any surprise that Feckel for Lovers continues an ironic tradition. As with its previous album, Feckel for Lovers includes two imaginative reinventions of tunes by the Manchester rock act Oceansize: “Build Us a Rocket Then…” and “Massive Bereavement.”
