Beak> has a new album out, pretentiously named ‘>>’ but for good reason due to the fact that the first brilliant album was named ‘>’. The genius behind Portishead Geoff Barrow is part of the band and I couldn’t have been more excited about this release. The first album completely drew me in with its Krautrock influences, dark and simple bass lines, moody keyboards, and moan heavy vocals. This new album is not much of a departure from that but continues the story of a lonely soul on a dark night running through a concrete maze. I highly recommend this album to any fans of Can, Pere Ubu, and the A Clockwork Orange soundtrack.
