Secret Chiefs 3

A nouvelle vague assortment of musical influences ranging from psychadelic surf rock, noise, arabesque and other Middle Eastern elements comprise the avant-gardening of the Secret Chiefs 3's quasi-mysticism. The band is the musical manifestation of an arguably faux Masonic-type group, the Grand Order of the Secret Chiefs. Often involving the musicians Trey Spruance, Trevor Dunn, Eyvind Kang, and Danny Heifetz, the Secret Chiefs avoid the trappings of standard 'world fusion' while infusing nearly-paranoid cryptography into an already beautifully confusing musical amalgamation.
