Today The Quietus premiered a remix of the Mamuthones’ “Symphony for the Devil” by Howling Owl artists and Bristol’s new kings of noise, Giant Swan (also playing at Liverpool Psych Fest). The track is a drone-based vortex of dub echo and Liars-esque nihilism.
Mamuthones take their name from the death-masked incarnations that have walked the processions and haunted the imaginations of the Sardinian locals in the traditions of their carnivals for centuries, and they emerged initially from the Italian occult psychedelia movement. Yet in keeping with the celebratory origins of their moniker, this band – originally formed by ex-Jennifer Gentle (Sub Pop) seer Alessio Gastaldello – are possessed of an upbeat and effervescent sound that’s equal parts riot and ritual. It’s one that’s seen them make waves around the globe, first striking out on Rocket Recordings with the ‘Collisions 04’ split release with Evil Blizzard last year, and their new 12” Symphony For The Devil – which only serves to further guide their spectral magick towards the dance floor.
This barnstorming record catches the mercurial Mamuthones using their genre-transcending vision and hedonistic intensity to create something primal and potent, mischievous and malevolent.
Other EPs in the series include Brooklyn’s Oneida
and the first music from Capra Informis,
a new band put together by the unnamed djembi player from Goat. All three and future EP’s will be available via Rocket’s online shop HERE
or from the bands direct.
