 Notes & Reviews
 
Kneebody releases their fourth album, the Line, as their debut recording on Concord Records, September 24, 2013. Their sound is... explosive rock energy paralleled with high-level nuanced chamber ensemble playing, with highly wrought compositions that are balanced with adventurous no-holds barred improvising. All'sounds-like' references can be set aside; this band has created a genre and style all it's own. This project explodes with rock and jazz influences through engrossing improvisational instrumentals, includes 12 original compositions, and contributions from various members of the group. Kneebody draws upon influences spanning D'Angelo's VOODOO to music by Elliot Smith, Bill Frisell, and Miles Davis. Their live shows are known for intense sonic landscapes of the Radiohead ilk, for the rhythmic bombast of a Squarepusher or Queens of the Stone Age show, and the harmonic depth and improvisational freedom experienced at a Brad Mehldau concert.
