Headdress - Lunes

headdress-lunes Formerly known as Worship (they released a small cd-r pressing under that moniker), the elusive group who now answer to the name Headdress continue their dusk lit creep through the enchanted wilderness. On their debut Turquoise, they craft a beautiful loosely woven tapestry of ivy-like guitar tendrils, lichen-encrusted percussion, solemn mossy male vocals that reside somewhere between Jandek and M. Ward. The album’s fifth song “Babylon” sounds strangely like a deconstructed folk rendition of America’s “Horse With No Name”. Whether intentional or not, the glinting familiarity of the latter’s central melody adds to the existing subtle hallucinatory atmosphere of the proceedings. The crowning jewel of rough hewn Turquoise though is the sixth track titled “Moon Of Shedding Ponies”. It’s a frayed, meditative instrumental populated with generous turns of a rainstick and what sounds like howling wolves or banshees. If you dig the rustic, abstracted psych folk sounds of Wooden Wand & the Vanishing Voice and the many bewitching branches of the Jewelled Antler Collective, don’t miss this! ------------------------ ( Psychedelic-metal / Drone-metal a la Eluvium / Bardo Pond GOOD ). ------------------------ Artist - Headdress Album - Lunes Release Date - 2009 Genre - Psychedelic-metal, Drone-metal, Experimental, Dark-core Tracklist 1 Seethrough 2 Tip of the Pyramid 3 The Lost White Brother 4 EEEEE 5 The End ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Headdress - Lunes Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Recommendations: Grayceon Nadja Jesu Eluvium Cult Of Luna ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ SUPERB TOURISTAS... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Review of "Burial Songs" by Palehorse/Palerider

In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
