Warp and Weft: Technicality and Emotion on “Seduction/Oblivion”


Some purists think technicality inevitably kills emotion in music, that bands who hit raw nerves do so in following the simplest route possible. While often the case, it’s far from a universal truth. The majority of bands that get labeled as technical might be more concerned with showing off than cutting into the heart, but in the hands of Minneapolis trio Warp and Weft, unpredictable changes, awkward timings and rhythms, and instrumental dexterity are tools to carve deeper beneath skin. Listen to an exclusive premiere of “Seduction/Oblivion” below.

Consisting of Eric Burns on guitar and vocals, as well as bassist Jordan Koch-Engstrom and drummer Chris Woznicki of the inimitable Morality Crisis, Warp and Weft pierce those nerves without wasting a hint of time.

Most tracks on its upcoming debut Patience fall within the two-minute range and still bore through the lungs. “Seduction/Oblivion” is no different in its aqueous noise punk, which combines the energetic shouts of KARP with a constantly changing and dissonant flood of razor-sharp instrumentation. It’s unruly yet concentrated, channeling aggression and unease through chops that would make most jazz musicians jealous. The rest of Patience, dropping in late August via Minnesconsin Records, is just as biting.

Upcoming Warp and Weft shows:

August 18th debut show with Birth Order, Minneapolis — link
August 27th with Serac and Motorrad Reisen at Memory Lanes, Minneapolis
