Soft Power :: Raw Bites

Add Helsinki sextet Soft Power to the growing list of jazz-rock revivalists. On their third album Raw Bites, Soft Power marries krautrock musculature to the jazz dynamics of Canterbury-scene stalwarts like the Soft Machine. But where one might expect fusion excess, Raw Bites delivers a punchy, rollicking album, brimming with riffs and hooks. This band is one to watch.
