Many Arms Record Release Show at KFN June 6

Many Arms Record Release Show at KFN June 6

Many Arms - a sublime piece of musical schizophrenia - will be celebrating the debut of their 4th album Suspended Definitions (Tzadik) at the Kung Fu Necktie tonight. A blend of alt-punk aesthetics and a jazz compositional style, their sound is basically what would happen if someone handed Miles Davis an electric guitar and said "surprise me." Each song is essentially a prolonged, furious guitar solo over already breakneck instrumentals, all able to turn on a dime; the band manages to weave a wry, ominous voice without even thinking about vocals. Many Arms' latest release has already earned them a spot in Spin's list of "50 Best Albums of 2014...So Far." They’ll be joined by Toronto saxophonist Colin Fisher of Caribou Vibration Ensemble, who also joined the group for the recordings of Suspened Definitions, for a special late night performance.
