Though a mere three members strong, Cmn ineed yr hlp conjures a racket worthy of the enormous monsters they compose their records about. Founded in late 2007, the band bonded over a mutual broad-reaching taste in music and general culture. With comparisons ranging from Turing Machine to Pink Floyd, the trio stakes out their own unique brand of mathy, progressive post-rock.
With their second record "It Came Without Warning...As Most Disaster Do" the band has streamlined their writing and storytelling abilities to create an album even more fluid and surprising than their acclaimed debut "The Curse of B'Zhang". A combination of King Kong, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Free Willy, the album tells the tale of a gentle sea monster trapped and kept against his will for the amusement and profits of his oceanfront captors. Our protagonist becomes frustrated with his predicament and sets forth on a plan to escape, regardless of the cost in human life.
