Mantis at Café Coda (7 and 9 p.m. showtimes)

August 13, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Photo: The three members of Mantis are shown looking down from a mezzanine. From left to right: Brad Townsend, Nick Zielinski, and Anders Svanoe.

From Scott Gordon’s feature on Mantis’ self-titled debut album: “Mantis gives us a prolonged listen to the more aggressive side of Madison baritone sax player Anders Svanoe’s playing. Bassist Brad Townsend and drummer Nick Zielinski match him with bountiful dimension and texture. On ‘Intersection,’ both Svanoe and Townsend lean into their instruments at angles of maximum friction—sharp squeals we don’t often associate with the baritone (Svanoe loves making it sound not like a baritone), bowed bass swells that evoke a rusty-hinge door swinging back and forth. The jaunty handclaps on the next track, ‘Skedaddle,’ sound almost sinister in context.”
