about

ABOUT THIS ALBUM:

“LKN sounds like a direct descendent of the whole Slint/June of 44/Shipping News axis. The songs are shorter but just as complex. The band (which is, in fact, one Lauren K. Newman) crams so many ideas in three-to-four minutes it’s scary."
—AIDING AND ABETTING #328


“We always marvel at the ferocity and tightfisted aggression of Ohio slashers Knife The Symphony. Garnering comparisons to Jawbox and Squirrel Bait—hallowed references!—they don’t fall flat, because unlike many postpunk bands, the Cincinnati trio aren’t so angular they neglect some muscular, storming punk fire. Rarer, they’re dynamically diverse; note the couple-minutes breakdown into near silence then back into full rage midway through the seven minute monster “Flat Time.” Not many have the command to subtly, slowly quash and then reclaim heavy volume over such a long stretch, and all three of their cuts are as liberating as crushing."
—BIG TAKEOVER #67
