Kuan

By Kyle Melton

Kuan

Upon their return from a month-long tour of the U.S., local instrumental quartet Kuan return to Dayton to celebrate the release of their new EP, Colors. Building on the momentum of last year’s Standby/On album, Kuan continues to deliver monstrous riff-driven epics tempered by tasteful dynamics, jazzy finesse and dashes of electronic experimentation. Taking their staunch DIY ethics to their logical conclusion, the band self-produced the album and handmade all the artwork for the album. From the first note to the final product, Kuan is a band that plays by its own rules, with the results being one of the most genuine bands in Dayton. Kuan will celebrate the release of the Colors EP with a show on Sunday, September 5 at Blind Bob’s, 430 E. Fifth St. Also on the bill are Mata Gawa, Footbinder and Garbage Kills Bears. Doors open at 9 p.m. Admission is $5 for 21 and up. For more information, visit www.MySpace.com/KuanKuanKuan.
