Tongues is not The Exchange Session, Vol. 3, nor is it a series of outtakes or discarded tracks from those sessions packaged simply to lure in those looking for more -- anything more -- from the deft electronics-and-percussion collaboration. (Although its release, in one sense, is the result of Kieran Hebden and Steve Reid's success; it was recorded six months after their first two dates, a few weeks before the first even came out.) Subsequent to a round of touring, where they played before all manner of jazz boffins and electronic heads, the two reconvened and recorded something that reflected the demands of a live audience.
