In Berlin Atonal 2017 I had a chance to see the Spanish duo LCC supported by Portuguese filmmaker Pedro Maia’s visuals. The unsettling murky live performance of Ana Quiroga and Uge Pañeda Okkre distorted time and space in Krafwerk. Since Atonal I am closely following the duo. Recently, Uge Pañeda recorded an experimental mix for XLR8R. Listen and read the interview here.
A new track from Eomac. As Ian told us a while ago 'For some people music is about an escape. To me it’s about connecting and going deeper'. 'Reconnect' is released on April 27.
Historians link Easter with Mesopotamian goddess of war, fertility and sex Ishtar.. For European pagans Easter is also very much linked with fecundity and your Easter bunnies symbolise prolific sexual activity... My choice of Easter soundtrack - Onmens 'Doopgrond'. As CVLT Nationsays " ONMENS songs get all up in your face and their lyrics drip sex!" Album release 20/4. Preoder now via Consouling Sounds.
It was Vilnius Punk-Hardcore scene that introduced me to extreme music and radical politics. As a teen activist I found shelter in various underground venues throughout Lithuania and the rest of Europe. Together with my grrrlfriends, we hosted a radio show 'Atviras Galas' dedicated to non-commercial music and feminist agenda, we set up gigs and naively hoped for significant socio-political changes. Years went by. I moved to the UK. Revolution did not happen. My taste in music became darker, grittier and more bizarre. Post-metal, sludge and doom. Desolation to spare with industrial, experimental, noise, ambient and dark techno.
One grim day I was chatting with a mate about the disappearance of the DIY culture. Mutually grim we mourned. Out of grimness an exciting idea of starting a new platform for extreme music was born. I wanted to give voice to underdogs of the scene, to add a personal, more intimate approach and most importantly to keep it DIY. Mutual Grimness - for extreme music artists and fans, who find catharsis in riffs (and beats) and refuge from the misery of life in music.
