Bent Spoon Ensemble, The
none nothing, sometimes

Bent Spoon Ensemble, The: none nothing, sometimes (Western Famine Recordings)
Label: Western Famine Recordings    
Released in: Canada    

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!
