Silence Presents: My Misshapen Ear with Special Guests
April 29, 2017
My Misshapen Ear is a collective trio featuring Anthony Argatoff on alto saxophone, Andrew Furlong on bass, and Joe Sorbara on drums and percussion. Their music ranges from minimalism to free jazz to chamber music through swinging, blues-inflected, nose-crinkling-neck-rocking grooves as often as prick-up-your-ears noise experiments. The band plays music composed by its three members whose strength as both composers and improvisers is on full display here.

like Bruce Cockburn and Don Ross, you will certainly enjoy Russell Scott!

The Foreign Resort are Denmark’s finest musical export of post-punk and dark new wave. TFR combine the shadowy mysticism of The Cure’s Pornography era with a driving production aesthetic akin to LCD Soundsystem. Intricate reverb-enveloped guitar lines glide over Steffan Petersen’s motorik bass and Morten Hansen’s powerful drumming, all while Mikkel’s taut and sincere vocal delivery demand your attention.
