Album Review

Sealed Knot, The – “Live In Concert At The Red Hedgehog ” – [Confront]

loun   8/21/2007   A Library, CD

Playing percussion, harp, and double base, often using avante-garde playing styles, The Sealed Knot serves up a ponderous, methodical skullcrushing that will leave you with a confused smile on your face. Two tracks, and they’re long. Loooooooooo – holy crap – oooooooong! Not just long in time, but in space, musical space, whence they drop off into silences so gently that you plunge in after, attentive and alert, to find… nothing? Something? At the edge of perception, is that the percussionist? Sneakily, they return before you abandon, teasing you onward, occasionally coalescing just enough for you to get a flash insight, but then they’re gone again, leaving you to swim for it. Is that a life preserver… the faintest hint of a beat?! No, wait…

Extremely challenging material.
