It rarely gets much weirder than Scott Walker. The man is certifiably bonkers, but awesome on every level.
Some classic post-punk for you, courtesy of The Three Johns.
Right from the outset, Gerber hits us with the (early) Floydian drone of The Sun Shall Be Turned Into Darkness, which is so reminiscent of Pink Floyd’s evergreen, Set The Controls For The Heart of the Sun, without the percussive elements, but focusing more on a lilting drone. As the disc progresses, you are treated to genre-splicing par excellence. Progressive rock drifts into post-rock, supported by a skeletal percussive framework and an ethereal drony element serving as ether holding everything together.
In all, this release has 29 tracks, which makes עשר such a generous offering. Philippe has much to be proud of with this release.
I have to thank Andrew Jervis who publishes Bandcamp’s weekly radio show for hipping me to this release!
Kim Oki is a saxophonist and composer out of South Korea who hashes together a sweet combination of free jazz, Korean traditional music and fine psychedelic rock and folk into a warm, coherent, and at times, challenging stew. Very pleasant listening!
