track for today… energy gown 'overflow for being grown'

After a couple of smaller-scale (and physically smaller) releases - two 7"s, one lathe-cut - Energy Gown have dropped their full-length Evening Molasses and it's totally killer. Think late 1960s psychedelically-altered freakouts, think Red Crayola, think The Calico Wall's 'Flight Reaction', and transpose those thoughts into a 21st century set of outsider drug music. Hear and buy the whole album here.

Check out this slice of superdistorted fuzz 'tude from Austin, Texas band-with-unpronounceable-name Quttinirpaaq. 'Chinese Hercules' is from their Let's Hang Out long-player, which is "pressed on clear vinyl with blood red spray". Read ramblings of the band at their Tumblr.

track for today… domotic 'schizophrenia'

I came across Domotic after their inclusion on a recent Wire 'The Wire Tapper' CD and love this, their soporific and dreamy cover of Sonic Youth's 'Schizophrenia'. Check out this and more of their releases at their Bandcamp page.

track for today… rRope 'stop it'

A small blast of primo mixed-up indie rock from 1990s San Francisco, doing the Bad Moon Rising-era Sonic Youth thing by way of Thinking Fellers Union Local 282. Deathbomb Arc recently released a three album set collating everything that it's possible to hear by rRope. More details here.

track for today… tom carter & pat murano 'cocytus'

One of the four tracks on the recently-released Tom Carter & Pat Murano album Four Infernal Rivers. A stunningly good pair of records: two 33rpm albums, each with one track per side, that mix freeform guitar noodling with subtle electronic processing. At times, like a very dark reflection of Mike Oldfield's Hergest Ridge. Get the album from MIE.
