Two men from Portland, Oregon playing white-knuckle, umami-jazz for the post-1st world. ]ohn Niekrasz: drums & voice 5eth Brown: rhodes & voice
Expect to be jarred in a decidedly unrock, but totally enrapturing and palate-cleansing way. �Josh Vanek (Wäntage USA)
I can’t begin to explain what was going on but I will damn near try because people should really hear this band. First, they are a drum (]ohn) & Rhodes (5eth) duo with occasional vocals. The drumming was intense, tight & jazzy. The Rhodes was both tonal and atonal and consistently percussive. The band played one long-form piece called Syllabic. When they broke into a clapping section with polyrhythmic chanting the audience ate it up. They also had some great solo trading within the complex aural picture of tones and rhythms they painted. This band must be seen or at the very least heard to understand them. And even then you might have to think a bit. - Really Bad Reverb
...our plans to call it a night were derailed by the incredible performance from a duo by the name of Why I Must be Careful. It was a completely enthralling experience, led by a distorted Rhodes 88 key (which was making noises I did not know electric pianos could make), jazz-esque drums and strange, arty, poetic vocal ejaculations. It was rather awe inspiring really. - UC Black Lodge
