Following on from their self released debut album in 2018, Weird Beard are proud to bring you the next instalment of KORB's sonic journey. II builds upon the solid kosmiche foundation laid in their first album and expands on it exponentially. Using vintage instruments and effects, KORB provide a soundtrack that harks back to classic sci fi films, drawing you in and placing you firmly in a futuristic landscape. KORB - II will be released in a limited edition of 250 copies on splattered vinyl that perfectly compliments the sleeve and will come with a gatefold insert featuring more of Rob Gower's sublime artwork. The first 50 copies will be hand numbered and contain a bonus signed CD. Weird Beard is the perfect home for Korb II, with both label and band continuing to forge their own unique and uncompromising paths outside of the constraints of the mainstream.
After playing in a jazz quartet together Jonathan Parkes and Alec Wood took their shared love of Krautrock and spent years experimenting with a wide range of instruments, including vintage analogue synths, creating a huge body of diverse music which eventually distilled into Korb. The first album was released in 2018 on their own label Dreamlord Recordings - which is also home to their other projects, Mutante (synth/electronic) and Arboria (electro/acoustic). Korb create their instrumental music using vintage drums, percussion, bass, guitar, analogue synths, organ, and a range of fx pedals. While Korb has it's roots in 70s Krautrock and Kosmische music they have spent long enough creating their own sound to ensure that they tread their own path.
