There are some bands who are content to make a record, play a few shows, and exist as a musical entity only when it’s time to make a new album, and then there are bands like The Skull Defekts who are the backbone of their musical communities. Hard at work on their numerous individual projects, constantly collaborating, releasing their own records on their own imprints, and touring incessantly, The Skull Defekts are Sweden’s answer to the States’ Sonic Youth and the Netherlands’ The Ex and one of the centerpieces of the Swedish experimental rock scene.

Since their creation in 2005, The Skull Defekts have taken their base of classic rock with massive guitar riffing, and infused it with their interest in circular composition, drone, tribal music, Indian ragas, ‘60s minimalism, and experimental music from numerous ages. The band’s lineage is nearly unparalled amongst their peers with members having served time in Union Carbide Productions, Kid Commando, Alvars Orkester, Satan Power, Oceans of Silver & Blood, Anti Cimex, Cortex, Trapdoor Fucking Exit, 8 Days of Nothing, and countless others. Their collaborations are no less notable with members working with Pan Sonic and Mats Gustafsson. Peer Amid, their third “rock” album, finds the band augmenting their line-up with a new fifth member, Lungfish vocalist Daniel Higgs.


Recorded at The Dustward Studio in Stockholm by Stefan Brainstrum, Peer Amid is their strongest effort to date. The arena-sized riffs of “No More Always” seep with an undeniable swagger, briefly catapulting the bands cyclic riffs into a frenzy. The intensity of “Gospel of the Skull” is driven by a tension created by the push and pull of Higgs vocals and mostly restrained guitar. Some may be familiar with this song as it was performed with a full symphony orchestra as part of the Gothenburg String Theory series that also featured the likes of Jose Gonzalez and El Perro Del Mar. The guitar lines of “Fragrant Nimbus” would make an apt soundtrack for a retro action movie on their own. When coupled with the foreboding words of Daniel Higgs, things rapidly move in another direction, fraying and shattering as his warnings become more explicit. The combination of Higgs’ lyrics and singular vocals are the perfect foil for The Skull Defekts myriad of talents. Peer Amid is a rock record, made by musicians who have always reveled in exploration, and made for a head that can accommodate the 360 degree turn.

Confirmed! 5.2 at the Gold Bar & at the Crown

RHYTON (Thrill Jockey, Mem. D. Charles Speer and the Helix, No Neck Blues Band & Psychic Ills) + Guests, TBA $6, 10pm  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 Review from tiny mix tapes; http://www.tinymixtapes.com/music-review/rhyton-rhyton

Amen Dunes (Sacred Bones, FACEBOOK) Mountains (Thrill Jockey… FACEBOOK) + 1  $$/ 10pm From WFMU; “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)
