HORSE LORDS (us / northern spy)
Grafting the relentless repetitions of modern minimalism onto the propulsive engine of rock and roll, Horse Lords create ecstatic music driven by dueling West African polyrhythms that curve endlessly past one another. This Baltimore quartet are currently one of the leading forces in the American DIY scene. Saxophonist / percussionist Andrew Bernstein, bassist/synthesist Max Eilbacher, guitarist Owen Gardner, and drummer Sam Haberman, employs arcane tuning systems to achieve their otherworldly harmonies, made possible by guitars refretted by Gardner. The result is at once stark and lush, tightly interwoven and threatening to fly apart, making their live performances spellbinding and utterly thrilling affairs.
CLOUD BECOMES YOUR HAND (us / northern spy)
Like visions from a 3D comic book, color fantasies explode in the vivid sound of Cloud Becomes Your Hand. CBYH is a Brooklyn-based sextet that can be placed in the lineage that links the BBC Radiophonics Workshop to the happy goofing of Syd-era Pink Floyd, Devo to the collage-happy Elephant 6 Recording Company, and Cardiacs to They Might be Giants. CBYH are purveyors of psych-pop of the highest order, delivered in a kinetically singular dialect of the musical language of fun.
GLORIAS NAVALES (cl)
Glorias Navales is a band based in Viña Del Mar, Chile. They combine local folk traditions and paganism with a post- Velvet Underground aesthetic. Imagine the likes of Lou Reed, John Cale and Violeta Parra (a famed pioneering Chilean songwriter, folklorist, ethnomusicologist and visual artist) together doing late night acoustic lo-fi trance jams in the rural splendour of Chile.
