SURF-NOIR INSPIRED EP “RATTLESNAKE CHOPPER” RELEASED BY NYCʼS CINEMATIC INSTRUMENTALISTS, BENINGHOVEʼS HANGMEN, AT NUBLU FRIDAY MAY 17th.

SURF-NOIR INSPIRED EP “RATTLESNAKE CHOPPER” RELEASED BY NYCʼS CINEMATIC INSTRUMENTALISTS, BENINGHOVEʼS HANGMEN, AT NUBLU FRIDAY MAY 17th.

Downtown NYC - based sextet, Beninghoveʼs Hangmen announces their second release, an EP, “Rattlesnake Chopper”. The group will hold a release party at the experimental hotspot, Nublu (62 Ave C NY, NY 10009) at 9pm on Friday May 17th. Their “creeptastic surf-noir” sounddeveloped from a desire to mash the music of Tow Waits and Danny Elfman. But with themenacing yet playful instrumentation of two rock guitarists, saxophone, trombone, bass, anddrums, the result is more of a psycho-crazed soundtrack to a Tarantino film.

The self-released EP comes at the heels of the critically-acclaimed first album, the self-titled “Beninghoveʼs Hangmen”. New York Music Daily rated it “#7: 50 Best Albums of 2011” and LucidCulture placed it “#3: Top 25 Jazz Albums of 2011”. Songs from the album have been featuredon Comedy Central, IFC, and more.

The music is composed by saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist, Bryan Beninghove. The bandconsists of guitarists Eyal Maoz and Dane Johnson (both John Zorn alum), trombonist RickParker (Tim Berne), Shawn Baltazor on drums, and Ezra Gale on bass. Kellen Harrison playsbass on the EP. The album is available at www.beninghoveshangmen.com and all internetmusic dealers, such as itunes.
