“14 Tracks: Quarrying Strange & Heavy Rocks”

We visit the outer limits this week to mine the fringes of Psyche-Folk, Noise, Avant Jazz and experimental Rock. Essentially it's a display of how far the usual guitar/drums vocals/electronics combos have been pushed. But, we assure you: it's not all about loudness or showy technique; the focus is on subtleties of dissonance, rhythm, instrumental intuition. That said, there's some f**king heavy sh*t in here! Solo artists are represented by Richard Youngs with the transcendent drone distortions of 'The Healing Of Everyone', beside the octopoid dexterities of Eli Keszler; Colin Stetson and his gargantuan Bass saxophone; and the force of nature known as Ghedalia Tazartés, plus an unexpected offering from the Young Echo Collective's Sam Kidel (El Kid) working out of his usual zone to beguiling effect. Bands wise, Weird Forest's as-yet-categorised -Rockers Excavacations warrant your attention, as do the virile Haino / O'Rourke / Ambarchi supergroup, Peter Rehberg's scathing Doom outfit, Peterlicker, Kiwi sludgy mavericks The Dead C, and the striking combo of Stephen O'Malley & Steve Noble, whilst Aufgehoben's incredibly visceral 'Interruhig' and Daniel Menche's mangled "STR" mix of Circle-meets-ISIS supergroup, Split Cranium are unmissable for fans of uncompromising, cathartic extremities. Fill your boots and be sure to come back for more when the effect wears off.

“A question..”

Do you have any plans to add a volume control to the page? It would be really handy.

Thank you.
