Sing, Shattering, A Poem in Reverse gathers seven tough, ragged, and freewheeling performances that traverse the tightrope connecting acoustic noise and free jazz. Rolling, playful jangles counterpoint driving bass lines in a recording always in flux, always under strain, and only ever hinting at stasis. Knots remain articulate whilst at the edge of sound and music, producing nuanced and detailed results.

“When Lee bows her double bass – check out “Too Much a Vanity” and “Dry Corner” – Knots’ already tension-packed sound comes close to unnerving. Her virtuosity really shines though on the track that follows. “Hearsay” finds all three players feeding off one another, at equal volume. It may be the album’s best.” Kevin Press @ Badd Press
