WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In Turn Up): Build “Dissolve”


Brooklyn quintet Build’s classical/jazz-oriented compositions are just as rooted in those two genres as they are in post-rock, evolving emotion and the use of space creating audio-scapes that are both thoughtful and daydreamy. Build composer/violinst Matt McBane is getting plenty of notice as one of the forerunners of a new movement of young composers who find less is more. NPR recently recognized McBane as a standout among “100 Composers Under 40” and with a brand new New Amsterdam Records release, Place, fleshed out, the group is ready to continue the trend that youthful composers are building. Nine tracks filled with cello, violin, piano, bass and percussion, Place reads like a classical score but deepens itself with jazz-y and rock attitudes. Time Out New York says, “Build has been attracting serious attention with its genre-traversing mix of chamber-music decorum, rootsy twang and pop-fueled drive”. Listen to “Dissolve”, below.
