"Hailing from the Washington, DC area, the young band Les Rhinocéros delivers a crazy world in sound, blending aspects of rock, world music, noise, ambient and jazz. The trio of teenagers was formed in 2008 while the players were still in high school, and has developed since then into an intense and wildly imaginative group that takes music to its extremes. Emotional, minimalistic, intense and grooving, this is music that goes beyond imagination to the edges of sanity. The group continues their sonic experiments by adding unusual instruments into the traditional rock band setting." - Tzadik Great Architect
Great Architect was formed in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 2009, as an improvising group intent on exploring the fringes of all musics with an urgency and focus reflective of the modern condition. Originally a quartet, the lineup expanded to a sextet in early 2010. Gradually, an emphasis on composition and structure came to the fore and Great Architect began turning out loose-limbed tunes that deal with a wide variety of topics: high-school fistfights overseen by teachers, slain South American revolutionaries, mendacity, pagan mythologies, the beautiful violence of calligraphy, kale, the Fantastic Four, and Amelia Earhart, among others.... Great Architect continues to be committed to experimentation. They have appeared in a 'Death Star' configuration - a 20-person group, largely guitarists, augmenting the core band - playing re-imagined versions of their music. In November of 2010, they performed their original score for The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1922), the earliest animated feature film, at Charlotte's Neighborhood Theatre. The members are: Andy Thewlis - alto saxophone Casey Malone - guitar Ben Kennedy - cello, violin Michael Houseman - drums Tyler Baum - lap steel Brent Bagwell - tenor and baritone saxophones, clarinet Great Architect includes members of Yardwork, Joint Damage, Blossoms, Black Congo NC, US WIldlife, and The Eastern Seaboard.
