It's happily not as experimental as I was expecting. I think being a part of this cassette underground I was ready for weirdo soundscape or heavily effected sounds of terror feedback.
Being limited to just percussion is working for these guys. There's no effects or electronic issues to deal with, placement of microphones. Just set up and rock the shit out of 3 drum kits.
It's pretty straightforward energetic layered drumming building on one rhythm, there's starts and stops, but vocally is where it gets really interesting...in this single 'Bones' the whole band starts out collectively yelling, graduallly the vocals separate and it turns into just sound. Then back to chanting 'We build a home...' it's like the best part of the Liars, the early stuff when it was all scary energy, they sound completely possessed.
Something like a drum lightning bolt.
Live this has to be an insane meltdown.
Hopefully they come back to Death By Audio soon.
The Foot Village 7" "Bones" has been restocked at our webstore. Only a handfull of copies, then gone forever, so don't hesitate. Burned through 100 copies in a month when it came out, so... http://deathbombarc.bigcartel.
Another podcast, episode 17 with Matt from BigRed....me and matt play Bruce Russell walkie talkie + an old Dianogah 7".
We debate conceptual records, talk about chicago, june of 44, actionboy records, and a drunk ebay morrissey single which I can't defend.
