Mckiel's band is amazing. They lock into thunder; their propulsive rhythmic arrangements boom and clatter in unusual but engaging time signatures. The guitars of Jay Crocker and Mckiel interlock in strange high patterns and chord structures that manically slither and chime out.
Crazy Horse for nerds, maybe. Wait, that's Sonic Youth. Sonic Youth for Canadian nerds, then. This is the best rock band and Jon Mckiel is a mighty good leader.
