31Knots crafts challenging rock music in the grand tradition of iconoclasts like Captain Beefheart and Frank Zappa. For a decade they’ve toiled valiantly in almost total obscurity. Blame it on weak biz handlers or the band’s refusal to slip into easy, but whatever the culprit, this Portland, Oregon-based trio has made a career of insuring their day-job employers that their hobby will never interfere
Here, 31Knots have produced a very good album - maybe even a great album - but one that simply does not reach the level it could have. The album builds layers upon layers, both on repeated listens as well as over the course of a single play. The band has alternated between serious and fun albums, and this album’s first half has a little of both. Strange Kicks recalls the quirkiness of It Was High Time to Escape, and the rance nightmare, The Breaks, harkens back to the math-inspired urgency of their first LP, 2002’s A Word Is Also a Picture of a Word

However, their latest album, Worried Well, released this year on Polyvinyl is about as catchy as experimental post-rock gets. However, their latest album, Worried Well, released this year on Polyvinyl is about as catchy as experimental post-rock gets. Our very own Jesse recently caught up with the band's vocalist Joe Haege to talk about what the band has been up to. Worried Well sounds huge, but the scope of instruments you actually use is fairly small. How much do you use samples, and how do you go about arranging the songs you've written? I love using samples in music.

Biography by Charles Spano. 31Knots fuse complex rhythms with jagged guitars for mathematical songs that zigzag through changes and anxious start-stop riffs, calling to mind Sonic Youth, Modest Mouse, the Ex, and even Fugazi's mor. ead Full Biography.
