Earth Joined By Holly Hunt For Only Florida Show In 2012 by orlandooom407

My excitement has been in the red zone since I heard Earth was playing a Florida show, and in my own town none the less. The god fathers, hallmarked and validated by Nirvana icon Kurt Cobain, have undergone a myriad of musical journeys through the catch all classification of ‘drone’. Whether you like your entrancing to be malevolent or more mystical there’s probably something in an Earth set for your ears. The show’s support includes the wacky piano enthralled jazz music of Steve Moore under the moniker Stebmo and the tectonic refrains of Miami’s loudest (drone) duo Holly Hunt. To help better explain the importance of this head hammering hat trick billing I spoke candidly to Holly Hunt earlier this afternoon. For those unaware of the pulverizing power of Holly Hunt their presence on stage is nothing short of sonic savagery akin to an eternal over exposure to CO2. Holly Hunt attributes their attention ‘riff length’ to “…a feel. Instinct.”. Gavin elaborated saying that “some deliberation occurs sometimes with some riff/tracks/compositions, mostly though it’s a gut feeling. We try and stay as present and aware as possible when writing.”

It’s no secret that Gavin and Betty are proud mega fans about Earth’s music. Gavin claims that their attractions to the band are the “…raw, mediated energy. The tone is sick, dark, entropic. The slow tempo perfectly illustrates the grind of life.” When asked them both what their favorite song was, they both simultaneously answered with ‘Ouroboros Is Broken’ (which you can jam below).

Make sure to grab your ticket now, because I hear they’re going fast and this show should be a sell out. You can purchase ticket by clicking here.

[REVIEW] PHILM – Harmonic by orlandooom407

It isn’t every day that bands with Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Fantomas) behind the kit show up. Especially bands that aren’t definably “heavy”. Philm (Ipecac Recordings) hails from Los Angeles, obviously, and completes their trio with Pancho Tomaselli (War) handling bass duties and Gerry Nestler (Civil Defiance) on guitar and vocals. Pancho, having had experience with arguably one of the most entertaining and long lasting funk groups to this day, shares his talents in a way one wouldn’t expect. The same could be said for Lombardo or Nestler who’s techniques elicit an arsenal that fuses funk, psychedelic, jazz and progressive rock. Expect scratchy circa 1974 guitar solos, spacial digitally delayed atmospheres, and masterful rudimentary jazz percussion patterns. You don’t have to enjoy metal to begin to enjoy Philm; an appreciation for Hendrix, Hawkwind, or even Parliament could potentially unlock an appreciation for heavier music. Harmonic does everything a modern (experimental) rock record should, and anyone looking to broaden their horizons should give this record at least one detailed listen. You’ll find yourself hooked by the second song if not before the conclusion of the first.

Tagging Philm as experimental would win you an award for biggest understatement of the year. Want to know the best part? You can stream this whole record on Spotify for FREE.
