The Danish trio Kirsten Ketsjer The Rock Band–named, I was told, after a friend of the band who was in no way affiliated with its music–play nervy indie rock that a friend compared to their sorta-countrymen 18th Dye*. Which is music to my ears–and a very apt analogy, although Kirsten Ketsjer’s music gets a little more frenzied and experimental at times, with singer/drummer Anja Jacobsen caterwauling so hard during one epic song’s freakout that I thought she was going to propel herself off her drum kit’s stool and out into the club’s side lot, leaving broken glass and gorgeous guitar arpeggios trailing behind her.
