“What if Captain Beefheart had cut his teeth listening to The Fall instead of Howlin’ Wolf and Bo Diddley? The result might have sounded like Receptacles” –FreeJazz Blog
No-wave, Afro-beat, free-jazz, mutant-funk, post-punk… whatever you want to call what Stockholm-based Receptacles does, you’re going to need a lot of hyphens. With highly elastic forms and abstracted melodies, bewildering odd-time rhythms, absurdist, acerbic sung/spoken lyrics, and a spontaneity more associated with kindergarten recess time than with three seasoned music vets, Receptacles is a joyfully shambolic deconstructivist collision of rhythms and riffs with Joe Willamson bass/vocals, Anton Toorell guitar, and Dennis Egberth drums.
