Salt Lake City sludge trio The Ditch and the Delta have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, Hives in Decline, via Echoes and Dust. Titled “Sleeping Dogs”, the nearly five-minute barn burner unleashes gritty, lumbering, down-tuned riffs that crush with each note. Check it out after the break.
Hives in Decline will be released on May 12 via Battleground Records. Pre-order here.
Experimental outfit Ex Eye have announced the release of their debut full-length album. The forthcoming self-titled affair, which was recorded live at Ismaily’s Figure 8 Studios in Brooklyn, NY, will be released through Relapse Records on June 23. The outfit is led by virtuosic saxophonist Colin Stetson and he is accompanied by drummer Greg Fox (Liturgy), guitarist Toby Summerfield and Shahzad Ismaily (Secret Chiefs 3, Ceramic Dog) on synths. The album’s artwork and track listing can be found below.
The album’s first single, “Opposition/Perihelion; The Coil”, can also be found after the break.
Pre-order the record here.
Complex, unpredictable, noisy and bit on the zany side, Mary Todd’s music is perfect for the lover of unconventional, grinding mayhem and the ADD-stricken individual. This New York trio takes a page from the early-mid 2000s wave of spastic, experimental grindcore and molds it into their own modern blend of ear-splitting chaos. This sound is shown off in all its jerky glory on their new full-length recording, Bone Stock; a 17-minute barrage of off-kilter rhythms and wondrous discordance. Fans of Daughters, Me and Him Call It Us and intense vertigo, take heed.
Svbterranean recently caught up with #chabois in Mary Todd to discuss the new record, mathcore and sexy foods.
