Guitarist, Buffalo Brown and drummer, Brave Ulysses have been staples in the Miami live music scene for a better part of the last decade, playing separately with a wide span of eclectic bands in various styles. They also worked together in the seminal art-rock trio Out Of The Anonymous garnering critical acclaim for their mind bending performances.
Now they are ready to explore new frontiers.
Enter COG NOMEN with their debut album "EVEN THE ODD"
The music is part electro-pop with a good dose of psychedelic ambient rock-scapes.
(Imagine Steely Dan jamming with Daft Punk at Brian Eno's house.)
Cog Nomen juggle spry rhythms, lush textures and engaging hooks live without the safety net of plug-ins or pre-recorded sequences favored by laptop musicians. The brunt of their debut CD, EVEN THE ODD was recorded live, facing each other in the studio; Ulysses playing drums and triggering notes electronically from percussion pads while singing through a vocoder and Brown making loops on the fly with his sound-shifting guitar magic. The Cog Nomen sound is equally raw and refined; its instantly familiar while exuberantly fresh and unpredictable.
The unexpected... after all, is the best part of any good journey or adventure.
