Mahjongg are a Chicago art rock band who like their polyrhythms and trance-inducing grooves. Their press releases claim they’re some kind of cult, but we’re pretty sure they’re just joking.
Some reviewers have compared them to Eno-era Talking Heads, and you can see that in their shared penchant for incorporating African-inspired rhythms into quirky, angular rock. However, Mahjongg are more of a jam band and much less interested in proper songs. Their raw, unfinished quality that suggests we’re listening to documentation of sonic experiments will appeal to some of you more than others.
