Calgary based Bent Spoons are an improvising band that work in strong grooves, what they sometimes refer to as "indie jazz": a mix of independent rock and free jazz. There's no doubt a subtle rock influence, with a great sense of cohesiveness in their shifting improvisations: slowly unfolding works with interesting rhythmic elements and even AMM-like underscoring at times. The pace is relaxed yet the intensity dynamic, making good abstractedly active pieces. A brief reading complements the work - "I taste my own lips" indeed!
