The Curls is a constantly evolving art rock entertainment content conglomerate based in Chicago, IL. The group has evolved and expanded into a complex collaborative world of choogle (choo•gle, nonsense rock verb) exploring elements of new wave, psych, pop and prog rock.
“Crown Larks threw psych-rock, noise music, and free jazz into one pot and stirred until the whole thing combusted.” – Stereogum
“…a coed unit of electro-jazz shapeshifters with a penchant for blending the schizophrenic and radical musical movements its hometown is notorious for producing.” – The Village Voice
Producer/MC Malci toes a fine line of contrast in all forms. At points, his music is thoughtful straight forward jazzy boom-bap raps, than a song later it mutates into something experimental, futuristic and chaotic. It’s somewhere between Quasimoto & Shabazz Palaces, Guru (of Gangstarr) & Death Grips.
