“Coltun’s Pinky Crusher" named one of DCMD's top songs of 2015!
"The sonic freakout that is “Coltun’s Pinky Crusher” was one of the most memorable songs of the year. It’s a gritty, spazzed-out single from Les Rhinocéros’ latest album, Les Rhinocéros III, that’s a completely unpredictable first-listen the entire way through, mashing up punk with worldly sounds, off-kilter loops and a bunch of other crazy effects that’ll nearly make your head explode…with joy."
Hailing from the Washington, DC area, the young band Les Rhinocéros delivers a crazy world in sound, blending aspects of rock, world music, noise, ambient and jazz. The trio was formed in 2008 while the players were still in high school, and has developed since then into an intense and wildly imaginative group that takes music to its extremes. Emotional, minimalistic, intense and grooving, this is music that goes beyond imagination to the edges of sanity. The group continues their sonic experiments by adding unusual instruments into the traditional rock band setting.
Sailbear is one of half of South Bend's post-rock band analecta, also known from his work with Fischer Dance Company and other bands such as Dad Jokes, Lune, Chin Up, and more.
