CEDERICK KNOX – “AUTUMN LEAF”

Cedrick Knox features members of Squid, Pelican Man and the Youtube / Tik Tok drumming sensation “Spack in the Box”. On their absolutely demented and thrilling post-everything cover of “Autumn Leaves” the group pursues a totally deconstructed take on the jazz standard by incorporating mathy looped and triggered guitar lines, electronic samples of ghostly samples and truly great free jazz drumming. The result comes close to what Knox describes as “nods to 70s psychedelic jazz and downtempo electronica, evoking a kind of paranoiac lounge muzak. There are distorted hauntological echoes and fake memories of jazz clubs, late 90s chillout rooms, and catwalk electronica as if filtered through the postwar European Avant-Garde.”
