“intense jams, showcasing their diversity and pushing their instruments to the proverbial limit”

NYC trio Consider the Source defy easy description. If intergalactic beings of pure energy, after initiation into an order of whirling dervishes, built some kind of pan-dimensional booty-shaking engine, powered by psychedelics and abstract math, it’d probably just sound like a CTS tribute band. Drawing from progressive rock, fusion and jazz, with alien sounds soaked in Indian and Middle Eastern styles, CTS blends disparate parts into a striking, utterly original whole. Dubbed “Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fusion”, the band’s music strikes a rare balance between cerebral and emotional, intellectual and primal. A relentless touring schedule has won the band a fervent following from California to Israel, with fans ranging from jam-band hippies and jazz cats to corpse-painted headbangers and prog geeks.
“It’s not everyday that you find a group of young men exploring the winding facets of the world’s music, and doing it with such skill….a truly unique New York City phenomenon.”
– Queens Tribune
“a shimmering prog-rock opus”
– Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
