E (band) - Negative Work

Quick Overview


View Detail

E, the savagely raw trio of Thalia Zedek (Come, Uzi, Live Skull), Jason Sanford (Neptune) and Gavin McCarthy (Karate), make angular, energized and idiosyncratic rock music. Following their self-titled debut which Mojo called “both thrillingly volatile and touchingly melodic,” their second album ‘Negative Work’ is the product of three individuals whose dedication to the collaborative process may very well be the source of compelling tension underlying their songs. Recorded and mixed in 4 days at Machines With Magnets (Battles, Lightning Bolt, The Body), the album captures the energy of E’s gripping live shows. E have been touring and writing together steadily since their debut, at an age when many musicians are loath to abandon what they are known for and jump back into the grind of establishing a new band. E’s egoless dedication, love of playing and relentless inventiveness are irresistible qualities making ‘Negative Work’ an entirely singular and highly compelling rock record. The members of E have decades of experience in the alternative scenes of rock music through their work with Live Skull, Uzi, Come, Neptune and Karate. Thalia Zedek is one of the most distinctive and acclaimed purveyors of shredded blues and has been a been a seminal figure in the independent music scene for over 30 years. “Heavy but with a subtle distinctiveness and an emphasis on songs; veteran skill is evident throughout.” - Vinyl District “E is a piercing, propulsive exercise in the fine art of guitar rock, a collaborative experiment in tension and release that explores the pantheon of punk guitar noise.” - CLRVYNT “Through Live Skull, through Come, Zedek’s guitar always bore weight - you could feel the whole 20th century catastrophe bearing down on it.” - Pitchfork
