If you haven't been lucky to experience a Sonic Jesus live show then check out their latest live session for 'Triumph', following on from the first in this series for 'Reich'. Both songs are taken off Neither Virtue Nor Anger, the highly-acclaimed debut record from the Italian outfit.
A dark, brooding affair expertly exercising an array of influences from shoegaze, psych, krautrock, goth and post-punk. The record is introspective, hypnotic and has seen them compared to the likes of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, A Place To Bury Strangers and The Black Angels. Coming in at ninety minutes long and spanning four sides of vinyl, Neither Virtue Nor Anger "feels like you're embarking on an epic descent into some collective psychic and spiritual underworld, from which you may never emerge," according to The Quietus.
Sonic Jesus will be touring Europe in Spring 2016. Please contact us via the website form for enquiries.
The live session for Reich was premiered in October by Sly Vinyl.
You can still pick up the record on double LP, CD and digital from our store.
10,000 Russos are gaining quite a reputation for their live show. We thought it was so good that we signed them side of stage after seeing them for the first time at Reverence last year, and we know that everyone that saw them close the first night of the Fuzz Club Festival will agree.
The live session for "UsVsUs" captures all the power and fuzzed out energy of 10,000 Russos live, in a geurilla takeover of a public spot in their home country, Portugal.
The video was shot at Cromeleque dos Almendres, which is an archeological site dating back to 6,000 BC and contains one of the largest groups of megalithic stones in Europe. The Iberian equivalent to Stonehenge, it's steeped in mystery and may be a burial place or some kind of astronomical observatory as it is aligned with the winter solstice. The band chose it for its strong magnetic charge.
The video was made by Bando À Parte and executive production was done by Pointlist.
