Blind Shake / Hipshakes


God unknown continue their innovative and stunning 7" series with this stormer from The Blind Shake and The Hipshakes. We kick things off with the determined stomp and punk thashing chords of 'Broad Daylight', it's thumping percussion in time with the snappy vocal rhythms, growing and coalescing into a hypnotic psychedelic squall. 

The flipside is equally as effective, if a little less frantic, with slowly wandering guitars and early garage punk vibes, growing from a rousing but minimalistic meeting of guitar and percussion before it suddely changes gear into a thrashing hardcore outpouring, as raw and unrefined as the best hardcore anthems, and imbued with the same rawkous spirit. Superb.  

Peter J Smyth

Black Smoke

    As front man of leading psych kraut rock heavyweights MUGSTAR Peter J Smyth knows a thing or two of how to riff out and play long passages of fuzz covered repetition, pummelling audiences into submission. 'Black Smoke' however sees a warmer, more introspective Smyth drawing on the examination of one's own conscious thoughts and feelings. Seventeen tracks of finger picked beauty recalling John Fahey, Mount Eerie amongst others and allowing an observation of one's mind, while in a more spiritual context examination of one's soul. 'Black Smoke' is an intricate album, full of dynamic intensity and stark observations. Lyrically, Smyth shines with a collection of poetic sonnets that translate moments of austere contemplation and urban alienation. In a performative sense, Smyth is confounding, ambiguous but sublime, leading the listener through a series of dense pilgrimages, describing a lost prodigal son in search of redemption. Limited to 500 copies on bright red vinyl.
