(( RECOMMENDED )) To Kill A Petty Bourgeoisie

"The Patron is the debut full length release by To Kill a Petty Bourgeoisie. The songs center around an underlying love story between two merging corporations that manage to capture the raw sentiment of isolation, profound discovery, and morbid betrayal.

"The recording process typically began with a basic vocal and guitar structure which was then slowly developed by adding electronics and manipulating sounds, until the original outline is blurred yet still identifiable. The steady passing of sounds and samples are most important to TKAPB's recording process, and they rely heavily on the loss of translation between each pass.

"What TKAPB have produced is a near perfect storm of structure and chaos, melody and noise, the precise and the random, fused into their own unified musical theory of everything that at times soothes while simultaneously grabbing your throat."

A beguiling album of melody and dissonance, TKAPB might be comparable to an imagined collaboration between Broadcast and Wolf Eyes. It's a dense record and a bit of a journey but so completely worthwhile.
