Friday 20 April 2018 – Wo Fat, Black, Doomstress (FREE SHOW!!!)

Wo Fat (Dallas, TX)
http://www.wofat.net/

After over 10 years of slinging their Texas-sized psychedelic blues doom, Dallas-based Wo Fat is going stronger and rocking harder than ever, promising to continue on their swampadelic visionquest of overdriven, fuzz-laden riffage and jazz-minded jam explorations with the next chapter, entitled Midnight Cometh, looming on the horizon.

Throughout their sonic odyssey of five studio albums, a live album, and two splits, beginning with The Gathering Dark in 2006, they have stayed true to the deep, dark blues that wails from within and have continually forged their riffs with a primal grooviness, giving them a consistency of style. But just as notable is their willingness to survey unflinchingly the outer edges of trippiness on the ledge of one footpath only to make a tight turn and trample full on with monolithic heaviness down another.

2009’s Psychedelonaut really began to solidify the Wo Fat name in the Stoner Rock world, garnering them wider critical recognition, leading to releases with Nasoni and Totem Cat Records which, in turn, led to their two most critically acclaimed releases to date, The Black Code (2013) and The Conjuring (2014,) both released on the iconic stoner rock label, Small Stone Records, with The Conjuring landing on NPR’s “Top Ten Metal Albums of 2014” list, among numerous other “best of” lists. Each Small Stone release helped to elevate the reputation of the band by both mass and media as soulful practitioners of sonic alchemic wizardry – seamlessly brewing heavy riff-rock, blues, metal and psychedelia together with a jazz insight for improvisation and purposeful jamming.

One reviewer (yourlastrites.com) aptly described their music this way: “It’s hard to know where to place The Conjuring along the stoner spectrum because it’s metal heavy, but it rolls like rock.” The critical success of these recordings and the band’s ability to slay live has landed Wo Fat appearances at the legendary Roadburn Festival, Desertfest, Freak Valley Festival, Psycho California Festival and Sylak Open Air Festival as parts of a number of successful international tours.

For the release of Midnight Cometh, the newest slab of riffage lurking in your future, which is easily their most daring psychotropic exploration of heaviness to date, Wo Fat has teamed up with a label on the rise, Ripple Records, who have proven themselves to be Brothers in the Riff by peddling some of the finest of the new fuzz. With voodoo drums beating and endless waves of molten, blues-drenched guitar riffery, Wo Fat carries on their tradition of keeping things heavy and fuzzy, but also groovy, which all too often is the missing element in so much modern heavy music.

You can hear the echoes of field hollers and that oft forgotten “way back yonder funk” fueling the fire burning deep in the swamp at the witching hour. You can feel the rush of living on the edge and glimpse a phantasmal Coltrane in your peripheral vision while they careen through improvisational jams. And all this with an unrelenting metal heaviness that underscores apocalyptic lyrics that conjure visions of the end of an age, (our age?), black midnight bargains, summoned demons, the unquenchable cravings of avarice, ill-fated alliances and the consequences reaped.

Doomstress (Houston, TX)
https://www.facebook.com/DoomstressBand/

“DOOMSTRESS brings a hard edge to modern doom w/nods toward classic influences” – The Obelisk

In March of 2016, burning passion, relentless drive, and an undying love for heavy metal music is what fueled bassist/lead vocalist Doomstress Alexis to bring to life the powerful entity that is Doomstress. In May of 2016, Doomstress arose before the people with Supernatural Kvlt Sounds, an EP of material rooted in doom, NWOBHM, and occult rock with influences such as Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Cathedral, and Uriah Heap. These influences can be easily identified in Doomstress’ heavy grooves, layered twin guitars, strong melodic vocals, and a thunderous yet dynamic rhythm section.

When asked what inspires her lyrics, Doomstress Alexis said, “Honestly, real world news makes for good doom music.” Finding inspiration in current events, personal experiences, and at times even social and political commentary, Doomstress creates songs that, opposed to being preachy, are engaging. “While the personal experiences come through in the songs, it’s easy for the listener to find themselves in these songs and to make that connection.”

Saturday 14 April 2018 – The Millbrook Estates, The Halfways, Palm Daze, Matra Lov

The Millbrook Estates(Austin, TX)
https://millbrookestates.bandcamp.com/releases

Spring 2017 – The Millbrook Estates took flight from the cocoon known as Roaring Sun. In a town saturated with many forms of psychedelia, this outfit strives to maintain the essential ingredients that truly produce such sounds – constantly pushing the musical boundaries of time and harmony, and engaging lyrically into searches within, to find answers for the confused world without. This group has no qualms with cozying up to passages of folk, jazz, proto, or any other type of mind/soul expanding music of any time period. The ever-changing nature of their songs leaves you blindly anticipating what could come next, and always surprised by what you find, creating a true psychedelic experience of sound.

The Halfways(Austin, TX)
https://thehalfways.bandcamp.com/

Born from the sonic spaces between reality and fantasy, The Halfways are a psych noir quintet currently residing in Austin, Texas on Planet Earth.

Thursday 12 April 2018 – Rixe (France), The Brass, Liberty & Justice, Stone of Ages, Permanent Control (all ages)

Rixe (France)
https://lavidaesunmus.bandcamp.com/album/coups-blessures-7

‘Coups Et Blessures’ is the debut 7″ EP from new Paris Oi! band RIXE. The four track EP harks back to the glory years of Bologna’s finest NABAT mixed with the classic 80’s French Oi! sound via RAS or L’INFANTERIE SAUVAGE and a heavy BLITZ vibe. The sound is rough, direct and angry and driven by a distorted bass and a vocalist that chews on glass for fun. Like the now defunct CRIMINAL DAMAGE, newbies Pittsburgh’s NO TIME and Brest’s SYNDROME 81, RIXE are the new voice of a Generation.
