"There's No Such Thing As a King Bee" by 75 Dollar Bill

One of the most exciting and original acts to emerge in the past decade is 75 Dollar Bill. Originally a minimalist duo made up of guitarist Che Chen and percussionist Rick Brown (his preferred instrument is a plywood crate), 75DB has slowly expanded its sonic palette to include strings, horns and bass, while still maintaining a laser-sharp focus. The band’s world is now big enough to incorporate Mauritanian-inspired guitar, Tony Conrad-esque drones, Lightning Hopkins-worthy boogie, Ornette Coleman covers and plenty more. 

[This record] might be their most satisfying work yet, bringing together a kaleidoscopic range of approaches, from expansively tranced out jams to blazing, stripped down duo workouts.

Wherever Chen and Brown take the listener, they do it with a pure sense of adventure, riding the current fearlessly.
