Sweet Banditry


NYC/Danish sound-fuckery mavens Tom Blancarte and Louise Dam Eckardt Jensen are the first couple of daring, skronktastic freedom music. After playing in acts like the Home of Easy Credit, the Gate, and the Peter Evans’ Quintet, the pair have launched their own extreme music label (Marsken Records), recruited two of Brooklyn’s ascending experimentalists (Brandon Seabrook and Talibam!’s Kevin Shea), and formed metallic death-jazz unit Sweet Banditry.Farvefisen blomstrer is the quartet’s apocalyptic, mind-bending debut, and it’s a crusher thick with Jensen’s satanic howling and sax squeals, Seabrook’s chugging metal maelstrom, Blancarte’s rhythmic boom and Shea’s usual bonkers beats. Prepare for rip-faced improv chaos with these four purveyors leading the charge.
