The Detachment Kit


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Detachment Kit is an American post-rock band. Detachment Kit, hailing from Brooklyn, New York, was born of the bandmembers' desire to express their musical disassociation with everything around them. While they embrace and support the current independent sonic palette, they see themselves as an inherently conceptual band that is separate from the readymade confines of scenes, labels and genre-specific musical movements.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Detachment Kit is an American post-rock band. Detachment Kit, hailing from Brooklyn, New York, was born of the bandmembers' desire to express their musical disassociation with everything around them. While they embrace and support the current independent sonic palette, they see themselves as an inherently conceptual band that is separate from the readymade confines of scenes, labels and genre-specific musical movements. As singer Ian Menard says: "I think we are relative to the current indie scene, but we're not card carrying members of any particular genre.

Actually, my card is all maxed out. What we are looking for is debt relief." Ian Menard (guitar and lead vocals) and Charlie Davis (guitar) are the constructors of Detachment Kit. On "Of This Blood" (Frenchkiss Records), the highly-anticipated follow-up full-length to their 2002 debut "They Raging Quiet Army", Ian handled guitars, drums, and vocals while Charlie pulled double-duty playing guitar and bass. The touring version of Detachment Kit includes a rhythm section comprised of Michael Hamilton (drums) and Bryan Mayer (bass guitar). "Of This Blood" was recorded in two weeks time at Steve Albini's studio, Electrical Audio, in Chicago, IL, the same creative hotbed where the band spent all of one day recording their first album, They Raging Quiet Army.

The thirteen additional days wear well on Detachment Kit. Of This Blood is more than the proverbial musical leap forward for the band. The album distills themes of isolation, anxiety, triumph, loss, hope and sentiment into its own unique poetics; it is concrete with soft skin. Of This Blood travels many musical paths, surprising and challenging the listener at each turn.

Guided by anthemic, angular guitars, throaty deep bass lines, bombastic drums and layers of confessional, angst-ridden, yet playful and vulnerable vocals, the album captures the dichotomy between danger and delicacy. According to Charlie, their songs are "short stories that Ian and I make up when we drink together and sometimes when we drink alone." Ian describes their music as "developmentally challenged." Charlie's description, "We play rock and roll. The awesome kind." And the critics agree with Charlie, as Detachment Kit comes highly acclaimed. Read more on Last.fm.
