Rocket announce new EP’s
from Oneida, Mamuthones and
new Goat offshoot, Capri Informis
Rocket have announced a series of ‘Rocket Shop Exclusive’ EP’s to be released in the latter half of 2015.
They include brand new tracks from Italian band, Mamuthones, Brooklyn’s finest Oneida and the first music from Capri Informis, a new band put together by the unnamed djembi player from Goat.
The first EP to be launched is the Mamuthones record to coincide with their appearance at the up-and-coming Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia in September.
Released 25th September
Perhaps recognising that the Rolling Stones original is in need of desecration more than reverence, the lead track is a spectacular and sacrilegious reinvention, filtering their avant-garage sensibility through a kosmische-disco prism to arrive at something akin to a deviant marriage between the electro-charge of LCD Soundsystem and the elegiac lysergia of Spacemen 3’s ‘Big City’. What’s more, an imposing remix by Howling Owl artists and Bristol’s new kings of noise, Giant Swan (also playing at Liverpool Psych Fest) twists it anew into a drone-based vortex of dub echo and Liars-esque nihilism. Meanwhile, ‘Any Longer’ (from the sessions that produced the ‘Collisions’ material) throws us back into guitar-drenched monomania, tapping gloriously into the ley-lineage of ‘Monster Movie’ and ‘Live At The Witch Trials’ before being disassembled in another remix by Italian dance maestro Lucretio, who also contributes a remix of ‘Symphony For The Devil’ available exclusively to the digital edition of the EP.
This barnstorming record catches the mercurial Mamuthones using their genre-transcending vision and hedonistic intensity to create something primal and potent, mischievous and malevolent. Frankly, Liverpool isn’t going to know what’s hit them.
Mamuthones Symphony for the Devil EP (ltd to 300 copies) will be released on 25th September – you can preorder your copy HERE
All three and future EP’s will only be available via Rocket’s online shop HERE or from the bands direct. They can be bought digitally from all the usual outlets.
