Minimal ambient techno.
Viejos Hombres de Abejón are a collective of drone musicians, whose line-up on this release includes Heskin Radiophonic, Echosonic, and Vasko the Pig.
Six years since the Viejos Hombres first landed with a blizzard of distortion, they are back. This is a soundtrack for our current dystopia. It’s the rally of the drums in the revolution, it’s the rave of the apocalypse. In short, it sounds like the sky is being torn apart. Mixing in the original album’s swirl of ambience and noise, this new EP throws in influences ranging from My Bloody Valentine through The Orb to Fuck Buttons. It is loud and brutal, yet hypnotic and mesmerising.
Using some new fangled doohickeys to manipulate 1s and 0s, granular clouds of noise and melody invite the listener back to the bucolic times of the band’s youth. The album’s six tracks are designed equally to calm the troubled mind and to scare the sane. So, put on your slippers, pop a Werther’s Original in your mouth, relax in your wing-back chair, stoke your briar and enjoy some old-time drone.
A folktronica collaboration with guitarist, designer, cyclist, photographer and painter Andy Walmsley, drawing inspiration from the landscapes of Lancashire and surrounding areas. This is an ongoing project, and all songs post are very much works in progress.
Attention all you greasers, hopheads and squares! Stratosonics are here with some down and dirty rock and roll! So buckle in for some high speed, all attitude and no talent psychobilly vibes. It’s loud, crude and very stupid.
