Melbourne's Bollard - shape shifting "En Bloc" from the "Trawlers" Album

























Most songs move in straight lines but En Bloc by Melbourne, Australia's Bollard traverse maze like turns, moves in reverse and turns inside out. Jagged guitar that tightrope on dissonant lines amid proggy bass and drums while the vocal performance feels like proto punk spoken word. It is like the punk bravado of Gang Of Four with the unpredictability of Pere Ubu. En Bloc is from their recently released debut album "Trawlers" - a self described hybrid collection of post grunge meets free jazz.
