Guitarist Grdina's Box Cutter with Francoise Houle on clarinet mix acoustic and electric lines in tunes with melodic momentum that take plenty of pauses for free sections.

New Rules for Noise

Grdina's Box Cutter: New Rules for Noise (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
