BLK JKS - Mystery
BLK JKS could well be ones to watch out for this year, with a host of amazing support slots with the likes of HEALTH, Errors, and Squarepusher, and their debut ep Mystery produced by Brenden Curtis of Secret Machines the right people are certainly taking note and so they should. Their sound is hard to pin down at first listen, there are all sorts of different influences, from dub to post rock to frantic 'At The Drive In' style beats and the urban Zulu blues of mbaqanga. Paints quite a picture eh?
You get the feeling that this four track ep is only the beginning of something pretty special. I have certainly been left wanting to hear more of these guys and hopefully I will pretty soon with some extensive touring all through April starting on April the 9th at Adventures In The Beetroot Field night at Fabric, ending back in London in early May.
Underneath is a mere taster of the potential of BLK JKS.
