“A powerful fusion of abstract hip-hop and modern jazz, and at its highest points you can’t really even tell where Kneebody ends and Daedelus begins.” —Pitchfork
Kindred sonic explorers share a mind-melding evening of new sounds and inspired collaboration. Grammy-nominated quintet Kneebody delivers explosive rock energy paralleled with high-level chamber ensemble playing, and highly wrought compositions balanced with no-holds-barred improvising. LA’s deep electronic master Daedelus (Alfred Darlington) is an inventor, a creator of aural labyrinths combining sounds from an eclectic palette into an innovative genre all his own. Together they unearth the fissures of rock, jazz, electronic, and beyond.
