27th Art Rock Show: Say So

Bent Knee - Say So

We starten deze uitzending met de groep Bent Knee, een septet uit Boston. Het artrockgezelschap brengt een bevreemdende maar uiterst mooie muziek. Denk aan Bjork, Zappa, King Crimson en waarom niet de Beatles. Art-rock meets avant-indie and progressive rock.

Rebel Noise review: “Say So is a celebration of creative freedom and unrestricted musicianship; it exemplifies what happens when imaginative and skillful players with diverse influences are given free rein over their art. As difficult to classify as it is to forget, Say So is a masterful effort whose textures, ideas, instrumentation, and even sequencing are ingenious.

Each moment is fascinating and original, and the overarching density of the arrangements rewards repeated listenings by revealing more and more subtitles. Beyond crafting an outstanding achievement in and of itself, though, Bent Knee’s greatest feat here is proving that there is still gratifyingly unique, ambitious, and wholly absorbing music being made underneath the radar. It’s easily one of the best albums of the year so far, and it deserves as much acclaim as it can get.

Naast Bent Knee met het album Say So staat deze week op de menu: Von Hertzen Brothers (Stars Aligned), Aranis (Songs from Mirage), Sylvan (Sceneries), The Tea Party (The Ocean at the End) and Trion (Pilgrim).
