The Book Of Knots - Traineater

On ‘Traineater’, the Book of Knots’ sophomore effort, the Brooklyn avant supergroup (Tony Maimone of Pere Ubu, Carla Kihlstedt of Tin Hat Trio, producer/engineer/guitarist Joel Hamilton and Matthias Bossi of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum) crafts a soundscape conceptually based on the decaying of the Rust Belt. Mining a sound somewhere between Tom Waits and Sonic Youth, the quartet layers metallic shards and plucked strings over bracing percussion clips and samples to create something akin to post-industrial Americana. Always interesting, and at times quite beautiful, ‘Traineater’ also includes cameos from indie stars such as Mike Watt and Jon Langford. Simply put, this is fascinating music from a heavy, beautiful, dark, slow, melancholy collective.
