Woodsman - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Woodsman
Woodsman is an experimental ambient post-psychedelic band based in Denver, CO. The quartet contains two totemic percussionists and two sonic animators who employ electric guitars, feedback loops, and recorded samples to build the dreamy astral soundscapes that define Woodsman’s sound. Influenced by hazy mountain passes, the cinema of Stan Brakhage, and early 1970’s improvisational recordings by Miles Davis Woodsman has crafted aural offerings that are uniquely their own.
Tjutjuna - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
"For all the talk of glistening magic, introspection and swirling dreaminess, sometimes you'd forget the dark side of psychedelia. Tjutjuna have not. Their forthcoming 12" on Fire Talk, the label run by Woodsman's Trever Peterson, is an explosive mix of progressive rock, not in a fusion or King Crimson way, but rather progressive in that it is constantly pushing forward, destroying anything in its path. It's the snowball effect, as the synth arpegiation that introduces "Mosquito Hawk" rolls ahead, gaining steam as smoldering drums as steady and resolute as a any Industrial-era machine bolster the fire. Before you know it, you can barely hear the arpegiating synthesizer, as swells of demon-crushing/anxiexty riddled guitars barnstorm the opposition, leaving little to nothing in their wake. It's forthright, and the execution is spot on. Same can be said of "Bottle Kids," which uses effected feedback and Keltner-crushing drums as the template for what is another trip through the dark side of the mind. Highly recommend pre-ordering this psychedelic beast from Fire Talk." - Chocolate Bobka
Ancient Sky - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Ancient Sky
Ancient Sky is a psychedelic rock band from Brooklyn, NY started by songwriter Brian Markham and drummer pat Broderick, the band now includes Christian Deroeck on second guitar and Mike Kutchman as producer and bassist. Over the past couple years, ancient sky has toured the states and europe as well as recorded one lp and several other smaller releases. largely influenced by classic psyche and indie rock, the band visits bizarre and far-out worlds with sounds and structures that walk the line between harsh and subtle, making for an interesting mix of heavy, hypnotic rock with plenty of hooks and americana influences. this spring ancient sky will be recording there second full length at kutch 1 studios in greenpoint, brooklyn. future live performances will feature this new material. check em' out!
