Known for DJ music that’s high-tech, high-speed, and highbrow, U.K. drum-and-bass modernists Spring Heel Jack now reflect on America’s musical history in Treader, a series of dark, abstract instrumentals. ”Is” fashions a train wreck involving composer Charles Ives and a Memphis soul band, ”Winter” drops a hot-jazz trumpet in the midst of an electronic air raid, and covers of ”Climb Ev’ry Mountain” and ”My Favorite Things” anticipate David Lynch’s entry into musical theater. File under ”Uneasy Listening.” B
