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... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
