Box Cutter (Grdina / Houle / Silins / Leowen)

Box Cutter (Grdina / Houle / Silins / Leowen): Unlearn (Spool)
Label: Spool    
Released in: Canada    

"Box Cutter cuts through stylistic boundaries. The players weave in and out of free-form improvisations, grooves, and lyrical melodic statements with equal enjoyment. The band leaves no stone unturned, making use of every possibility that presents itself. This is a band that loves to improvise. It will make music out of anything: the sound of wind, a chime, a feel, a phrase, a tune... Box Cutter feels equally at home making music out of pure sound and texture as making a soulful melody sing."-Spool
