The premiere release on Newcastle UK label The Old Noise sees two analogous bands form a split release kinship through astral projection and sonic charged travel. Glasgow’s THE COSMIC DEAD and Newcastle’s PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS offer two 20 minute plus tracks of aural yin and yang.
Following a highly successful performance at this year’s Roadburn Festival, THE COSMIC DEAD return with their now familiar sound of smoked out space-rock fuzz. ‘Djamba‘ gently drifts on an entrancing wave of psyched out hypno-dub bliss before the quartet rocket out of the atmosphere with all the vitality and spirit they are revered for. THE COSMIC DEAD are renowned for effortlessly combining swirling synth and spaced out guitar reverberation with orbiting, memorising groove, all of which are expertly balanced throughout ‘Djamba‘.
PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS’ offering is their debut recording, ‘The Wizard & the Seven Swines‘. Where THE COSMIC DEAD provide a smooth ascension into the cosmos, PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS head full throttle into a black hole. The north east anglo travellers propel into their doomed voyage with pulsating motorik rhythm and 70s crunch. ‘The Wizard & the Seven Swines‘ reaches its final destination with apocalyptic riffs and nihilistic mantra.
Both sides mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate, SunnO))), Earth) with artwork by Joe Hodgkiss and this slap of wax will be released on the 8th November via The Old Noise Records on 180g virgin vinyl and you can stream both tracks below:
