FREE MUSIC! COMMA - COMMA
Discovered by WPNZR’s itinerant West Coast A&R head honcho Cook (a main player behind the seminal and much-missed band Monkeytribe, and the guy who also brought you the delectable Daddy_Scrabble), Comma are a fascinating proposition for lovers of epic, heartfelt instrumental music.
With all the intricate musicianship of Can or Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and all of the sonic experimentation of Battles or Cougar but with less of the electronic hocus pocus, they are a math rock band in the classic sense – musicians playing complex arrangements in perfect synchronicity, to devastatingly beautiful results.
Echoes of 90s alt-rock and progressive jazz fusion flutter through these six exquisite tracks, providing a listening experience that is as challenging as it is immersive. Black Lantern Music are proud to welcome Comma to the label – we hope you’ll enjoy their first EP as much as we do. The band themselves say:
“Comma's first EP is an interesting fusion of strong childhood influences - touches of Don Caballero and Tortoise can be detected alongside a much gentler musical sensibility. Each track has a character of its own whilst happily contributing to an impression of Comma's over-arching musical direction, which will no doubt only continue to distinguish the band from the totemic inspirations of its youth.”
