This transatlantic combo plate pairs Shape Breaker and Fuck Mountain in a joint mission to please your sonic palate. “Spellbound” builds and captivates the attention with reverb-soaked garage-punk, while “Idle Hands” sets a blistering pace intended to maximize the amount of fuzzed-out riffage possible on a single track.
SHAPE BREAKER (PHILADELPHIA, USA)
Out of the derth of fantastic Philadelphia bands, Shape Breaker has something unique going on. The brain-child of Pat Hickey has one constant element: fuzz. The remaining elements shapeshift depending on the varying degrees of oscillating lead guitar, Amishly simplistic (not a bad thing) drum beats, and vocal tracks that blend so seamlessly into the riffs that you would think that Nikolai Tesla invented a new kind of auto-tune.
FUCK MOUNTAIN (DUBLIN, IRELAND)
These veteran slashers from Dublin earned their bones in Crowd Control and Ex- ploding Birds but were undoubtedly psychically channelling Chicago’s Dastard and Dinosaur Jr. and doing some lines of Bleach-era Nirvana and Huey Lewis and the News in creating this project. This rampaging tornado of sound will make every day feel like Friday at 4:45 PM.
