Tap Into the Full Avant-Garde Spectrum on Kelly Moran’s ‘Bloodroot’
Nobody does experimental songcraft better than Kelly Moran. A trained expert in the art of prepared piano — a compositional technique popularized by out-there pioneers such as John Cage, wherein musicians jam the piano strings with all sorts of doodads in order to dramatically alter its sonic palette — the Brooklyn multi-instrumentalist's craft embraces the aural avant in all its forms, with an accordingly diverse array of collaborators. She's played with Voice Coils and Cellular Chaos, and tapped noteworthy metal board wizard Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice) to master her new album, Bloodroot. The ensuing listen is challenging, engrossing and unequivocally awesome. Give it a spin in its entirety below.
