…Bender – Run Aground

Recorded live on a reel-to-reel in a disused school, the debut from this London art noise project pivots around a wickedly potent take on the blues. There are echoes of Nick Cave’s From Her To Eternity, but…Bender’s third member, film-maker/curator Geraldine Swayne, navigates them towards eerie folk. Despite the improvised conception, there’s a sinewy discipline about these cloud-rumbling vistas.
