Belgian heavy avant-prog-jazz-rock combo The Wrong Object returns with a brand new studio release of their trademark instrumentation and sonic landscapes. Laden with a full load of heavy guitar riffs, extravagant jazz themes and electronic sounds, this CD marks a return to the rockier and densely overdriven stance that characterized the band’s earlier productions.
The sheer sonic texture of this album is driven by a combination of tight prog-rock sequences alternating with more open, freely improvised material.
This explosive package consists of a solid, pulsing rhythm section capable of performing with versatility in any situation, aggressive guitar riffs and solos, unusual guitar-synth soundscapes, and fuzz bass guitar laced with a fiery horn duet.
With influences ranging from Zappa’s whimsical complexities to Squarepusher’s glitchy electronics, from Soft Machine and Electric Miles to Stravinsky and Béla Bartok, “Stories from the Shed” will surprise prog-rock fans and modern electric jazz aficionados alike with its genre-defying compositions, eclectic jam improvisations and intricate arrangements.
Eclectic band for fans of Frank Zappa, Soft Machine, Primus, King Crimson, Terje Rypdal, John Zorn and jazz-oriented jam-band scene.
" The Wrong Object has built a reputation for its astute interpretation of the music of Frank Zappa, but its members are strong and idiosyncratic composers in their own right. They’re also intrepid improvisers who combine an appreciation of the jazz vernacular with a more aggressive rock stance." – All about jazz (USA)
