Boomkat Product Review:
Free jazz, two words that strike fear into the hearts of most music fans, but luckily not this lot who haven’t been afraid to inject their own personality into the much maligned genre. 7k Oaks are of course made up of experimental veterans, and in their number house members of Zeitkratzer and Zu among other acts, and their rawkin’ skronk would be a good way for jazz newbies to get a tantalizing taster of the sound. Y’see ‘Entelechy’ actually rocks, and shares as much with prog rock (at least to these ears) as it does with jazz – I’m almost reminded of Norwegian jazz/rock breakthrough act Shining, and that’s a very favourable comparison indeed. Recommended.
