This week we’re going all New York on you. That’s right, it’s Big Apple time people. Now I could pretend this was all very deliberate. We’d intentionally posted several New York bands because of the prestigious CMJ Music Marathon currently taking place in NY. Actually, that’s not a bad idea. Let’s just pretend this is NOT a coincidence and we’ll start the post again.
As it’s the CMJ Music Marathon this week in New York, Yankland (read Stereogum’s preview of the event if you’re going). We’ve decided to feature several artists from the great city itself. On Monday we wrote about the excellent HAERTS (just can’t stop listening to that). And today we bring you the equally talented Cultfever.
Cultfever is a collaboration between Brooklyn-based musicians Tamara Jafar and Joe Durniak. A quick perusal of their tunes via SoundCloud reveals a band willing to flit between musical genres searching for that elusive ‘sound’. I’m not sure if they’ve yet nailed it, and perhaps they never will, perhaps experimentation will always mark this twosome and they’ll never quite land on what they are ‘supposed’ to sound like (that’s what I’m hoping anyway).
I could go all Pitchfork on you and start eulogising on the rich layers and gentle but echotic (all the best Pitchfork articles make up words) depths of Cultfever but I’ll quickly get bored of myself. Rather, just listen to Knewyouwell and be satisfied:
