DW016 Century Plants/The Qoast
Our latest shared release continues the transatlantic theme, featuring a pair of duos who follow different but complementary routes to lost lands of avant-psych-drone overload. Century Plants is a two-headed guitar monster from upstate New York, both also serving in the larger Burnt Hills collectivity; gtrs plugged directly into hi-tension wires mainline pure raw overbleed, calling to mind the finest Japanese and New Zealand noise masters w/o sounding like anyone but themselves. French twosome the Qoast have a number of releases under their belts under the name Ghost Brames; here they kick things up a good few notches, doubling up each on swirling gtrs & bash-tastic drums for a Gallic free-psych whirlwind epic that manages to be simultaneously atomically heavy and woozily levitational. Three tracks total, 50 minutes.
