The Warp/The Weft: Dead Reckoning
(Independent)
Thewarptheweft.com 

With an apt name, The Warp/The Weft weave dominant guitars and soaring vocals to construct a sonic fabric of mind-bending, yet accessible, progressive rock. Sometimes searing, sometimes subtle, sometimes both, always interesting. The Poughkeepsie-based quartet's third full-length embraces the art of music, searching the in-betweens and venturing to the tenuous edges of falling apart. Thankfully, the cliffsides and crevices are never too clever for their own good, and the intriguing riffs and evocative lyrics are held tight to the ledge by the dynamic, but grounded, bass and drums.

There is some psychedelia here, but the music never ventures into the realm of jam rock. With allusions to a certain flute-friendly British prog-rock band of yore, The Warp/The Weft lean into post-punk, indie, and traditional rock, melding the genre perpendiculars into a sound of their own. Worth a trip to see them tame the beast live.
