Band of the Week

Two Knots is Lots

I've been feeling a little nostalgic lately, longing for my Atari and cheap Radio Shack Casio, and I blame a lot of that on the musicial stylings of Christopher Samms a.k.a. Two Knots is Lots. He has definitly mastered the retro/electro sound, but he does add a modern feel to his compositions. I call them compositions because they are mostly instrumental pieces that weave and dance their way back in time. On August 29th of this past year, Christopher released his second LP "If You're Feeling Real" independently, mostly, on his own through his myspace page. I say mostly because he did have some promotional help from his now label Better Swimmers. According to him he does two things: "I crush beats and put them in soup", and "I churn beats and put the on bread". What more can you want?
Currently, Christopher is preparing to release his third album in March, an EP entitled "Really Yeah", while also working with his girlfriend on a side project called "Mon Talk". The new EP features the new song O Animals, and the entire album can be steamed right now at Tkil's website.
