Hello friends! On this week’s Deep Cuts, we will be joined by the members of Boston’s Bent Knee!

Bent Knee, for those of you who are unaware, is a truly terrific modern art rock group who defy categorization, description, and any superlatives you can throw at them. It’s not about ‘look at us play hard music’ for these guys – no, not at all. What Bent Knee do that sets them apart from the crowd, is tap into real, human emotions in an almost theatrical sense.

And before you start thinking Marillion, you are wrong. So, so wrong! Vocalist Courtney Swain’s delivery is akin to the drama one might associate with that of classic Peter Hammill, without sounding anything like him or Van der Graaf Generator at all. Musically, these guys are all over the map – elements of theatricality, elements of metal, elements of Americana, elements of avant garde.

To me, Bent Knee are one of the best things happening today and it’s an honor to have these folks join us on the program.

See you soon.

Thanks Ian, great show, hadn't heard Bent Knee before but really liked it. Flavours of Sleepytime Gorilla and Moetar if performing a Brechtian musical! Will get hold of their stuff for sure.
