Lespecial - CheenLespecial - Cheen

Lespecial is a genre-busting trio from Boston/New York City that continuously pulls sharp left turns on their musical influences. One minute they’re sparse techno, then Buckethead-type weirdo shredding, then alt-funk in a Primus/Chili Peppers vein, with Talking Heads “Speaking In Tongues” era synth keyboard flourishes, to middle eastern flavored hip-hop and psychedelic reggae dub. Yet they somehow manage to retain a consistency and logical flow.

For the listener that likes to be challenged, and prefers a widely eclectic musical palette in which to paint their imaginary soundscapes with. Recommended tracks:  “Jackwise”, “Sounds That We Do”, “Skull Kid”, and “American Apocalypse”.

Lespecial performs in Madison with a concert at The Frequency, on Thursday, February 1, 2018.
