((Capillary Action)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Brian Geltner
My first reaction to Capillary Action was that their music reminded me of that first Storm & Stress album. That was the album that, when I first played it, I was like, "What the hell is going on here?" I sort of hated it at first... and then it became one of my favorite albums.

Capillary Action makes music that you have never heard before. Boy, is it all over the place. I read that this band lists Shudder to Think as an influence. Exactly! That was another band like Storm & Stress where I was all, "What?!"

Anyway, THIS band is led by Jonathan Pfeffer and I won't even get into all the other members that roll with him at any given time. The count is always changing. But at any given time, expect lots of horns and strings and percussion and, well, just a lot of stuff.

And that stuff goes all over the place. Is it pop? I guess? Is it punk? I guess? Is it classical? I guess? You're not going to get this right away. But if and when you get it, I bet you get really into it. Like Storm & Stress. Like Shudder to Think. Like Capillary Action.
