A onetime member of the highly regarded Portland, Ore., experimen-tal indie-pop outfit Menomena, Knopf used 2125 LOMBARD Intuit ’s creation as an excuse to hang out and @ FILLMORE play with a mess of musicians and friends — 35 people, all said and done. His decision to use each person in a limited capacity meant that he never felt obligated to pay the talent, either. Prophet , the latest record from the solo-project-turned-band, doesn’t look to take a similar tack. Knopf recently described Prophet as “more of a rapid transit line between my sleeve and my heart” — which means Sensi-tive Vocal Junction, Punchy Synth Lane, and Ambitious Song Structure Avenue should be key stops.
