Jorge Arana Trio: Avant-rock group from Kansas City, MO. Formed early 2011, it features members of the defunct immigrant-son/noise-rock band Pixel Panda. JAT released their debut album 'Mapache' 10/26/12, an urgent and dark convergence of rock, jazz, noise, classical, horror, video game, free-form, punk, and incidental musics. 11/05/13 marked the release of a 7" split with experimental-rock group Ambulants, featuring the trio's first collaboration with violinist Chaski Zapata-Dye. The new ep 'Oso' was released 07/22/14 on 12" vinyl from Haymaker Records. With origins stemming pre-trio, Oso carries with it doses of nostalgia, surf rock, horror film sounds, and the persistence of sophisticated perplexity.
"On the whole, it feels more raw than The Mars Volta ever did, making me to feel like I was listening to some kind of unholy offspring of At The Drive-In and John Coltrane."
