The adorable father-daughter project has just released its third song, the title track to their forthcoming record Werewolf (tentative album art above). Seven year old frontgirl Joanie Bologna’s vocals are getting absolutely vicious in that instead of the yelling she did in the first track, she’s expanding her voice to include actual growls and screams. People have been comparing her to Kat Katz of Agoraphobic Nosebleed since the project’s inception but now the two are even closer. To make things even better, the song ends in a totally rad southern metal groove torn from the latest Red Fang record along with sick lead work done by Spiralmountain‘s Erik Ebsen. The clashing of styles may seem weird on paper but the whole thing is amazing. It’s actually the best thing the duo has done yet.
I realize that Sockweb is a gimmick, but it’s the best gimmick I’ve ever heard. It also helps that the music is legitimately good. As always, we’ll keep you up to date on all happenings Sockweb as they work on their debut album.
Our pal and bearded wonder Erik Ebsen has just released a self-titled album under his Spiralmountain project, and it’s some of the dude’s best work yet. Also of note is the album cover, which I put together for him. Yay, I like being involved in things!
We were e-mailed this weekend by a nice young man called Erik Ebsen. Now, not to blow our own considerably girthy trumpets, but we do get a fair amount of review requests. It’s a hit and miss affair, but Erik caught our eye not least because he’s a friend of Jak Noble, AKA ReturningWeHearTheLarks. We loved his recently released EP Proud England, and so this seemed like a profitable avenue to explore.
Boy fucky is it.
Erik composes under the moniker Spiralmountain, and amongst a wave of copycat djent clones, he really does stand out. His most recent (and possibly debut?) release is Blacksand, fifty solid minutes of spine tingling instrumental ‘ambidjent’ that encompasses a number of styles and a multitude of instruments. I won’t spoil the treat by going on any further, but rest assured you need to give this at least one listen.
Check out his Soundcloud here, or just stream the whole damn thing below! Apparently there’s a Bandcamp coming soon too, should you wish to throw money at him!
Impressively, the whole thing was composed in less than a month, and Erik handled everything. I think it’s also worth mentioning that this is dedicated to someone who I can only assume is his father. I hope it’s not too presumptuous to say he would be very proud of you. Top stuff man.
