Have you ever heard someone say they’ve got an itchy brain? That’s what Beak> sounds like. The English trio inhabits a strange intersection of post-punk and rock music that’s fuzzy, dubby, and percussive, touched by electronica's buzz and indebted to krautrock's pace. There’s very little out there that sounds like this band, which is a good thing, of course. Members include Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, bassist Billy Fuller (who has played with Robert Plant and Massive Attack, among others), and Will Young, but together they play as one living, breathing, sometimes gentle, sometimes menacing organism that just happens to be buried somewhere under your blankets. Beak>’s first two albums—2009’s self-titled and 2012’s >>—are worth hearing, but first, check out “Allé Sauvage” on their new record >>>. It’s a weird and wobbly chunk of sound that’ll leave you discombobulated and maybe even scratching your skull.
