Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

William Gibson just tweeted about these guys because they are at Vancouver Folk Fest right now, so I looked them up and ended up being completely blown away. Honestly, this particular piece is really similar to something Trent Reznor would come up with. It has that beautifully weird, warped, warbly sense of pitch, an isolated, minimalist line of melody, a pulsing, primitive rhythm, and angry, buzzing hornet sounds. These guys are influenced by rock, so I am thinking someone in the band listens to Nine Inch Nails. I am not an expert on traditional Korean Geomungo music, so it could all sound like this...which would be awesome.
