Smart Flesh

Genre: Folk; Status: In Season

This Rhode Island quartet maximizes the impact of minimal gestures. The band treats its recording studio — a vacant pasta-sauce factory — like a musical accomplice, extracting shiver-inducing echoes, moans, and whispers. Exotic instruments blend to create muted tonal colors, and rough-hewn voices tell stories of longing and mortality. Smart Flesh is a quiet, modest success, if a bit monochrome. B
