About this item
White Hills and RMFTM are the latest additions to Fuzz Club Split Single alumni, one which already boasts rock n roll leviathans The Black Angels, A Place to Bury Stranger, Alan Vega and The Telescopes.
Psych-rock favourites RMFTM contribution to the series the colossal soundscape ‘Decadence’. The Dutch instrumentalists have released three sold-out albums since their inception and ‘Decadence’ is typical of their explorative style. Coming in at just under ten minutes long the track opens on harsh industrial noise pounding through a constant wash of eerie reverb, guitar riffs chime in as tooth-rattling percussion submerges you further into this huge, ethereal wall of noise. ‘Decadence’ is truly testament to the bands limitless avant-garde capabilities. The track continues in the hypnotic, abstract sound RMFTM have built with their previous record Subversive 1 (whose follow up Subversive 2 is currently in the works) and invites fans to follow them deeper down the musical rabbit-hole.
Joining RMFTM is one of New York’s most prolific bands, stoner / psych / space outfit White Hills. The duo - whose fruitful existence has spanned over a decade and seen forty releases - contribute their space-rock epic ‘You Pass By’. Having already built a dedicated cult following, the band recently gained further notoriety after an appearance in the Jim Jarmusch film Only Lovers Left Alive. ‘As You Pass By’ is a climactic otherworldly mix of swirling electronics building up as deep bass roils beneath singer Dave W’s gravelly vocals until the song erupts into a whirlwind of bluesy distorted guitars and screeching feedback, underpinned by a chilling spoken word sample. Both acts share a love of the surreal and approach music as experimental art. Their avant-garde soundscapes are the perfect foil for one another, proving that in the case of Fuzz Club Split Singles, the whole is truly more than the sum of its parts.
