Bent Knee: The Au Naturale EP
Walter Sickert (leader of the Army of Broken Toys) tweeted that Bent Knee is his new favorite band. Stream the EP above on Soundcloud and get a taste for something stripped down. My favorite: "Little Specks of Calcium (Piano/Voice Version)" is haunting, the reverb is majestic. Their websites are currently in various levels of outdatedness/disrepair (the main site is being updated), but it looks as though the band will be playing a few shows in Massachusetts this summer. A sweet respite from the dog days.
