I've neglected Mutual Grimness for a while due to personal reasons... Yet today I really feel like sharing with you the discovery I made yesterday. MONO (Japan) are going on tour with Americans A Storm of Light and... bringing on board British cellist Jo Quail. Jo Quail is a true virtuosa. For those who like Colin Stetson and Jessica Moss.
Treha Sektori is opening for Amenra in Japan tour this autumn! Watch the tour visuals via CVLT Nation.
The upcoming LP from Emma Ruth Rundle is awe-inspiring. 'On Dark Horses' feautures members of Jay Jayle and thematically revolves around... horses. Two glorious tracks available on bandcamp.
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.
