Fri 19th June -- The Chameleon, Nottingham
With new LP’s just out on Ecstatic Peace and Troubleman, Pocahaunted bring their swirling psychedelia to Nottingham. Hints of ‘80s pop, drone, tropical beats and guitar blur into a beautiful wall of sound.
“A cindering tapestry of guitar string propelled by other-worldly beats of oblivion.”
-- Weird Forest
“Nod-out acid rock rhythms with wordless choirs of abandon and power vocals extrapolated from hypnagogic 1980s pop.”
-- Volcanic Tongue
:::: BURIAL HEX
Burial Hex is Clay Ruby’s (also a member of free folk group Davenport and pagan doom unit Jex Thoth) solo project and melds the grim, frost bitten atmospherics of black metal to twisted electronica and caustic ambience. Records out on Aurora Borealis.
"OPPRESSIVE NECRO ELECTRONICS!"
“Ominous strings moan and drift, melodies abstract and spare, stretch out and sprawl like a graveyard fog. Slowly, other sounds enter the mix, percussion, rumbling drones, strange beastly growls, eventually, the tranquility is shattered by what sounds like a descent into hell, anguished wails, squalls of strings, screams and shrieks, more growling and grunting, which soon give way to an avalanche of crumbling distorted noise, feedback, and amp buzz, whirs and grinding glitch, a serious wall of intense blown out fury.“
-- Aquarius Records
:::: SUN ARAW
Sun Araw blends the cosmic ambience of John Coltrane’s ‘Interstellar Space’ LP with the fuzzy drug riffs of Spacemen 3 into a blissful mass of ragged sound.
“A drugged out, bluesy blend of face melting drones, fuzzed out guitar riffs, and repetitive clangy rhythms. Ritualistic and somehow modern, Sun Araw walks the line between pop and drone.”
-- Aquarius Records
”Kogumaza are the re-united guitar section of former Nottingham band Wolves Of Greece. They combine the guitar density of Glenn Branca (whose orchestra they have both been a part of) with the heavy throb of Lungfish and the insistent rhythms of Mo Tucker, courtesy of Ms K.E.Brown on the drums, to create a swirling, spiritual murk.”
