RHYTON (Thrill Jockey, Mem. D. Charles Speer and the Helix, No Neck Blues Band & Psychic Ills)
+ Guests, TBA
Rhyton is an experimental/improv/psych trio based in Brooklyn that features Dave Shuford (D. Charles Speer and the Helix, No Neck Blues Band), Jimy SeiTang (Psychic Ills) and Spencer Herbst (Messages, Matta Llama). They are a band with an organic genesis, born from late night rap sessions at a local Brooklyn watering hole. Heads of certain vibe gathered together to tap into the underlying flux form of transportational music.
“And maybe that’s what makes Rhyton’s album so enjoyable, the sense that old wine can — in the right distorted, rock-amplified hands — still get you raging drunk.” - Dusted Magazine

Amen Dunes (Sacred Bones, FACEBOOK)
Mountains (Thrill Jockey… FACEBOOK)
“Amen Dunes is not something you put on to just listen to. It is an invitation to possession. Somewhat in the vein of Exuma, Death in June, or Sam Ashley, Damon McMahon (the “mind” behind Amen Dunes) seems to have an intimate relationship with songwriting as a medium to conjure spirits and recording as a way to capture and exorcise them. His monumental last full length, DIA, was written and recorded during a period of intense seclusion in a cabin in upstate New York in 2006. When I asked Damon about how this isolation affected the recording process, he admitted to feeling presences and sometimes resorted to cranking up the volume as loud as he could to “drive the demons away”.
But whereas DIA is a castle protected by these loud, electric of walls of distortion and reverb, Murder Dull Mind is more of a watchtower turned inward, barricaded by no amplifiers, fenced in by no haloes of effect pedals (save for some sparse interjections), a lone shivering structure of acoustic guitars and raw voices rendered tough by the sun and soft with rain, skeletal remains of a panopticon that sees all but suffers invisibly. It is rooted in unmistakeable darkness, but also retains a pensive and wistful detachment that allows it to breathe and reflect on itself, hovering in this state of half-embodiment almost like a ghost hovering above it’s grave.(…) But as with any good possession music, Murder Dull Mind also exorcises those same demons it allows to take hold of it.” - (full review; CLICK TO READ THE FULL REVIEW)
