the boys have released their TRANSITIONAL DOUBLE EP 'twilight dawn' today, signifying their shift from black magic to white magic:

previously we have been treated to 104 minutes of the dark stuff, in the form of 'uncanny valley'; you may witness it here and be scourged:

in between times they released an improv album 'the witness' by USB stick, placed with dried flora into a miniature coffin and sent across oceans to twenty (of which i was 1. the coffin makes for a fine centrepiece & repository for other small items of numinous value, such as the pound coin from my family's xmas pudding a few years ago, won through clairvoyance):

the new record is two in one; the first sends off their former style in violent arrays of utter stress and shock, climaxing with an 11-minute ceremonial deathspin and then playing it out with a romantic ballad, 'scotch-style. the second is absolutely new, the pomp and glitz of being reborn in 2020 as young and in some violent way optimistic...there's going to be a full-album rendition at some point, but this point of flexion will suffice...for now!

On the 1st track now. This is more hypercolour than their usual stuff although now Ive typed that its gone blackgaze. Hail Stabscotch! Love this band

a mix between noise-rock and gecscore with the swagger of Boredoms

obviously a strong aoty contender

"no honey sodomy/sugar asshole" the highlight so far imo

Not got around to getting it, but I will. Wont even let the 100gecs comparisons put me off like Imago is trying!

100gecs among many different ingredients chucked into the ultraspeed blender
