“powerful and virtuosic, cutting-edge music…A fast twenty minutes worth of raw spontaneity.”
-Dave Wayne, All About Jazz
Below is an excerpt from the Bloodroot EP. The full-length 21 minute track will be available May 4th from Table and Chairs Music
Straight from Seattle’s surging avant music scene, Bad Luck tours the West Coast this May in support of their new EP Bloodroot. Hot on the heals of their 2011 double-album Two, drummer Chris Icasiano and saxophonist Neil Welch have created a 22 min sonic manifesto. Bloodroot is their most ambitious recorded piece to date, culling up the gravelly saxophone wails and deep drum beats they’ve come to be known for. But Bad Luck continues to explore conventional and unconventional territories in their music. In Bloodroot, heavy-looped chords abruptly cut off, replaced by creaking moans, clicks and clamors. Panicked improvisations become replaced by beautiful, subtle melodies. As one of Seattle’s most creative touring projects, Bad Luck continues to evolve with every show.
