“Know End Insight” is a gripping rocker from Los Angeles-based act Squanky Kong. Their prog-rock backbone explores blues, jazz, funk, and beyond throughout new album Dawn of the Cataclysm. “Know End Insight” pursues a more focused progressive-rock approach, an enjoyable introduction to the band’s knack for vigor-full hooks and rising vocal cues (the title-referencing vocal at 01:15, for example). Elsewhere on the album, tracks like “War by Proxy” tout a bluesy rock heaviness, while “Parade the Plastic Planet” fuses rock, jazz, and psych with consuming results.
“Know End Insight” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2021’ Spotify playlist.
