31 Knots

It Was High Time to Escape (54º40' or Fight!)
by Tim Den

Fans of Don Caballero and Minus The Bear rejoice: 31Knots, as their name suggests, literally go boyscout on their song arrangements, intertwining hammer-ons and pull-offs until everything's a series of sonic knots. Beautifully done, no less, as hints of classical theory (imagine Dark Tranquillity's The Gallery done by indie rockers) are bred with lo-fi recording quality and suppressed melancholy. Usually bands of this nature focus so much on technicality that they forget to sing, but not here. Guitarist/vocalist Joe Haege mans the tight ship not only with his dexterous fingers, but also with enough clever verbal ideas to quench the need for "hooks."
