Biography

There are at least three bands that go by this name:

1. The US , band are originally from Richmond, Virginia, and now based in Brooklyn. They formed in 2000, took their name from writer Franz Kafka - author of the short story The Metamorphosis. The current members are Champ Bennett, Nikki King, Billy Bennett, Jeremiah Klinger, Cory Bise, Toby Driver and Mia Matsumiya. After the release of two EPs, Gregor Samsa and 27:36, and two splits with The Silent Type and Red Sparowes, Gregor Samsa delivered their much anticipated debut full-length 55:12, composed of eight songs submerged in dreamy, multi-layered post-rock atmospherics. In their next album, Gregor Samsa took a new approach to composition, both in process and instrumentation. The result was Rest, released in May of 2008 on Kora Records (US) and own records (Europe).

    Приятная, прозрачная, медленная, красивая и слегка грустная музыка. И хорошо, что ничего общего с Кафкой, кроме названия, в этой музыке нет.

    "As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect." Beautiful music, Even Numbers is incredible.

    Anyone know any songs similar to We'll Lean That Way Forever? I've been searching for months, but nothing comes close.

    This band has so many good songs that I can mark as favorite all of them.

    I probably listen to the two songs off the Red Sparowes split more than anything else they've done, it's a devastatingly emotional 14 minutes of music. Brilliant band.
