Knifeshow manages to cut a tale with sharp instrumentation more powerful than their vocal inspiration could ever recite by means of words alone. They wrote a strong narrative arch using big, quality sounds and developed an emotive, powerful atmosphere to get downright literary. It’s a free download. Knifeshow is a duo made up of Jack Inslee and Wreck Tech. The two throw a raw global club party in Bushwick, Brooklyn called Full Service. Wreck has hosted the Math + Science show at WNYU for the past five years and Inslee recently dropped a tuff juke house edit of “Marvin’s Room” by Drake. (Photo by Yasmine Chatila.)
