The Body — 'The Myth Arc' — https://youtu.be/CKChJ0lIkkU
The duo of Lee Buford and Chip King continue to defy the constraints of what it means to be a «heavy» band by seamlessly combining composition and production approaches from hip hop, pop, classical — as well as rock and electronica — into a rich and utterly singular sound. Equally at home on festival stages, art spaces, or in DIY basements, they transcend musical boundaries. On their latest LP, I Have Fought Against It, But I Can't Any Longer, The Body challenge themselves again by turning their compositional approach on its head, choosing to build the record on their own samples rather than recording the basic tracks of drums and guitars and processing those. The result conjures the sublime from an unexpected and incomparable variety of sounds. Once again, The Body's creativity shapes their bleak worldview into propulsive, affecting, and even danceable music often drenched in distortion.
