Kafka is the Locktender’s first full length album – five songs inspired by Franz Kafka’s lesser known, short proverbial works called “The Zürau Aphorisms.” While the songs focus on and borrow from only five of the aphorisms, there are 109 total that Kafka wrote while staying in Zürau over the winter of 1917-1918, published posthumously in 1931. The collection covers a vast range of topics and styles, is beautiful, contemplative, entertaining and insightful. The proverbs chosen attracted the band particularly for their simplicity, beauty, openness to personal interpretation and in some ways, their obscurity.
