Over the course of Wilderness' career, each album has been a darker entity than the last. Even more downtrodden and more languorous than Vessel States, (k)no(w)here downshifts gears again with half-time drum thumps, longer stretches of time between picked guitar notes, and increasingly simplified basslines.
For their third album, (k)no(w)here, Wilderness set out to compose a single piece that could be split into tracks only in that they’d appear that way on your iPod. The record moves with an ear toward its broader gains as one song diced into eight, another crafty epic that takes its theme from this year’s headlines.
When Wilderness, an art-rock four-piece band from Baltimore, were invited to write a piece of music for visual artist Charles Long at his exhibition at the Whitney Biennial in March this year, (k)no(w)here was the result. It's the shortest track on the album, but it does enough in under three minutes (under two if you take away the intro) to give the (k)no(w)here a second wind and leads nicely into a highlight, 'Chinese Whisperers'. This is the third album by Wilderness and it is one that is designed to be listened to from start to. finish.
