H. C. BEHRENDTSEN
H., C. and B. from L. appear like three scientists wearing Aloha shirts occupying your basement party room. Their first album sounds as if it was recorded right there. Under laboratory conditions, of course.
If you‘ve already enjoyed a live gig of the Math Rock Experimental Band, you’ll know that there’s no party without three tube TVs and a tumult of computer-generated avatars. This fall the band has launched their first album: nine angular sound excursions enthralling, dis- turbing and unsettling its listeners.
Difficult to grasp in one pass, this debut discloses a catchy and astounding cabinet of curiosities wrapped by the band‘s ample precision as well as its delicate and pearly sound. Excited indeed, riotous no.
With certain lunacy and blunt attention to detail Leipzig’s H. C. BEHRENDTSEN have melt clever compositional sophistry and a palmfull of pop-cultural references into a record of roughly 40min duration. Where outrageous surf rock allusions are breaking even the sturdiest wall of guitar, a touch of 90s rock nostalgia breathes a certain warmth into the crystal clear math rock structure. A sound which offhandedly bridges academic and DIY-spheres making jazzists and hardcore kids feel at home equally.
