Jandek (US) + Ka Baird (US)
Ka Baird’s live performances are rigorous and electrifying, often losing herself in the process of looping hyper layers of ambiences, electronics and acoustic instruments. She has previously released On Drag City and RVNG’s FRKWYS series. A member of the group Spires That In The Sunset Rise, she gathered extensive critical acclaim when on the road with Circuit des Yeux. Ka Baird has collaborated and toured with a ” who’s who” of improvisers from all over the globe.
Jandek is the musical project of Corwood Industries, a record label that operates out of Houston, Texas. Since 1978, Jandek/Corwood Industries has independently released over 100 albums/DVDs of unusual, often emotionally dissolute folk, rock, and blues songs without ever granting an interview or providing any biographical information. Jandek often plays a highly idiosyncratic and frequently atonal form of folk, rock, punk, country, classical and blues music, at times using an open and unconventional chord structure. The name ” Jandek” is most commonly used to refer specifically to the project and not an individual.
