The Oscillators have just released their debut album titled Beat Tectonics. The Oscillators features Ostle on drums and electronics, bassist Glen Oliff, as well as Three Stars alums Matt Rippetoe and the ubiquitous John Lee on saxophone and guitar, respectively. The recently profiled Rob Coltun, musician and owner of the Bossa Bistro & Lounge, acted as executive producer of Beat Tectonics while Doug Derryberry, who has worked with everyone from O.A.R. to Bruce Hornsby, engineered the recording. The album is a strong example of contemporary jazz fusion. The compositions incorporate the odd-meters and angular melodies characteristic of the genre, but the ensemble never sacrifices a strong groove for instrumental pyrotechnics.
