Dead Season

19 Feb

Very stoked to think that in a few days time I’ll be watching WOLF PEOPLE bare their teeth on stage in Sheffield. Clearly, WP are the best gtr band outta England’s Southwest since THE SOFT BOYS were wading through ventilators down in Cambridge. But much closer to my new home here in North Yorkshire, lurk another great band called DEAD SEA APES. A trio based in Manchester, DEAD SEA APES play an awe-inspiring, desert fried form of instrumental rock that alternates between tightly-focused, modal droning and wide-open power trio sun worship at the drop of a hat. The gtr work has me thinking how THE BLACK SUN ENSEMBLE’s Jesus Acedo might sound soloing over old THIN WHITE ROPE riffs, and oh man: what deep rhythmations these boys get up to! They’ve got an ass-flattening new EP available for purchase over at their Bandcamp site, and if these guys keep developing, their jams will surpass the high lonesome vistas haunted only by the likes YAWNING MAN in no time flat. Can’t wait to see them tear it up live.
