Guitar-led original compositions this week from an exciting new band!
The Alex Munk Quartet combines mammoth riffs with explosive improvisation, embracing the frenzied rhythmic patchworks of Tigran Hamasyan and the visceral roar of Wayne Krantz. Thick, sonorous basslines merge with pounding drums and luscious soundscapes to hypnotic effect. There are triumphant themes, knotty hooks, pearly pools of sound reminiscent of Bill Frisell. And the whole lot is shot through with Munk’s love for the melodic directness of blues and rock.
‘Alex Munk is very much a musician to watch, his patient, motivic solos displaying a striking character and maturity.’ – Dan Paton, Music OMH
