after discovering portland’s 31knots (thankyou to sctas), their daytrotter session has truly become a favorite addiction.

[daytrotter session, 2007]

twisting inside the trio’s complex structure of preacher-like shouting and dissonant lyrics, room-commanding drums, mesmerizing guitar and bass lines, this urgency takes over. to listen for the first time feels like an unexpected climax throughout some of the most intense, bizarre and darkest places ever been to. 31knots sixth full-length album worried well is scheduled to be released on august 19, 2008 through polyvinyl records and an autumn tour is expected to follow. be sure to hear their woxy lounge session and see all the videos.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
