Pretzel Bill in a Witch's Blood Sauce...; Grasshopper on My Castle of Quiet, 28th May 2014

Wm. Berger / Tracy Widdess

Ah, Grasshopper! A mainstay of My Castle of Quiet playlists from the very beginning. This Brooklyn duo has traversed the most-eerie of improvised / otherworldly territories, and come out the other end, as outstanding soloists and collaborators, in many projects outside of Ghop. Their musicianship remains expert, the sheer quality of them "knowing what they're doing," and choosing to do THIS, is one of the great charms / inspirations of Grasshopper, still very much the "mothership" for Josh and Jesse.

Fans will find the band largely in familiar territory here, painting a slow-burn garden of creeping dread and pulsation, cradled by ethereal long tones. "Witch's Blood in a Sauce" finds them especially "on," adding unanticipated horror-dressing to their usual array of mesmerizing sound evolution. Always good, and always at home on MCoQ.

Grasshopper have new work out or coming soon, on various formats / labels. The new, full-length Grasshopper LP (their third 12" on vinyl), Dark Sabbath: Symbols of Evil is coming soon on Hausu Mountain. Jesse and Josh also have a solo / split tape, Josh Millrod / Shingles, also on Hausu, there's a full Shingles cassette, First God Planted a Garden (2AM Tapes) ,and a Josh Millrod solo cassette, Seeking the Millenary Kingdom, on Solid Melts.

Grasshopper on My Castle of Quiet, v.1 (2009; our second live-musical guests, ever!)

Thanks as always to audio engineer Juan Aboites, for his professionalism and talent, and to Tracy Widdess of Brutal Knitting, for continuing to immortalize my crappy iPhone band captures.

Steve Jr. Live on New Shit

Steve Jr. make a hell of a lot of noise for a duo. Ever since getting their latest self-released tape here at the ol' CKUT, folks have been going crazy over their heavy psych jams. Together, Corbin and Gleb meld crushing yet infinitely catchy riffs with pounding drums and wailed vocals and the result is a truly impressive wall of sound. We were thrilled to have them join us for an in-studio performance during New Shit, even though their volume shook the room enough to make CDs fall off shelves. We forgive 'em.

Don Goliath take a (roots)step to LCL !

Mysterious rootsstep producer from Berlin, Germany, "Don Goliath" contacted us a few monthes ago to ask us to make a selection from his vaults.
So that's from about 250 earthshaking tunes that we picked only 12 to build "Rootsstep Colossus", an ode to this not-so-known (and should-be-more) genre of dub.
We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do !

Here is the release page on FMA :Don Goliath : Rootsstep Colossus


Bassement votre,

LibreCommeLair (LCL)
