31knots :: its a secret society

after discovering portland’s 31knots (thankyou to sctas), their daytrotter session has truly become a favorite addiction.

[daytrotter session, 2007]

twisting inside the trio’s complex structure of preacher-like shouting and dissonant lyrics, room-commanding drums, mesmerizing guitar and bass lines, this urgency takes over. to listen for the first time feels like an unexpected climax throughout some of the most intense, bizarre and darkest places ever been to. 31knots sixth full-length album worried well is scheduled to be released on august 19, 2008 through polyvinyl records and an autumn tour is expected to follow. be sure to hear their woxy lounge session and see all the videos.
