CMJ Day 4: Kirsten Ketsjer @ Cake Shop

Until I got floated a new mp3, I didn’t know anything about this trio from Copenhagen. That song led me to some more live recordings online and I got immediately hooked. The band is very raw and delivers some of the most exciting stuff I’ve heard in awhile. They conjure up the sounds off Sonic Youth with some death metal married with unpredictable sonic structures. I stumbled out of my sleepy hangover to catch them for free during the day and was totally impressed. With just 3 onstage they completely filled the space with such incredible sound. The highlight of CMJ for me.
