White Hills and RMFTM (Radar Men From The Moon) are the latest additions to the Fuzz Club Split Single series, which already boasts leviathans like The Black Angels, A Place to Bury Stranger, The Telescopes and Alan Vega. Their offerings for Split Single No. 8 are now available to stream in full below.
Stoner/psych/space duo White Hills has a catalogue spanning 40 releases over the past decade, gaining them a cult following and an appearance in the Jim Jarmusch psych-inspired vampire film Only Lovers Left Alive.
They contribute their space-rock epic “As You Pass By”, which is a climactic otherworldly mix of swirling electronics building up as deep bass roils beneath singer Dave W’s gravelly vocals until the song erupts into a whirlwind of bluesy distorted guitars and hammering bass by his partner Ego Sensation, underpinned by a chilling spoken word sample.
White Hills are paired with Fuzz Club's Dutch instrumentalists RMFTM, who have released three sold-out albums since their debut in 2013, and the single ‘Decadence’ which is typical of their explorative style.
Coming in at just under ten minutes long, the track opens on harsh industrial noise pounding through a constant wash of eerie reverb. Guitar riffs chime in as tooth-rattling percussion submerges you further into this huge, ethereal wall of noise. ‘Decadence’ is truly testament to the bands limitless avant-garde capabilities.
The track continues in the hypnotic, abstract sound RMFTM have built with their previous record ‘Subversive I’, and invites fans to follow them deeper down the musical rabbit-hole.
Split Single 8 is available as a Fuzz Club exclusive 10" in yellow vinyl (300 copies) and the standard edition in solid white vinyl (700 copies).
