Crackleknob Reviewed In The Wire

Veteran jazz critic Brian Morton reviews Crackleknob‘s new self-titled debut on hatOLOGY in the June issue of The Wire.

“At first you might think nothing very much is going on,” he writes, “then you realise the most interesting passages are those which have been trimmed down to just a couple of plucked strings, unanchored bass notes and lonely brass breaths and cries. The action’s in the intervals and in the spatial distribution of sound, but there’s a solid architecture to each piece.”

The group, which features trumpeter Nate Wooley, guitarist Mary Halvorson and bassist Reuben Radding, will celebrate its new release with a performance at Brooklyn’s Issue Project Room on May 24th.
