Robedoor “Stagnant Venom”

16 Apr 2013 — Henning Lahmann

Though still dropping one flawless release after the other, and though still being blessed with the most impeccable curating in the game, LA underground institution Not Not Fun is not so much exposed to the internet's glaring spotlights anymore, at least compared to the years of hype surrounding the label circa 2009/2010. But I don't think Amanda and Britt Brown really care, and after all, maybe it's all for the better - in any case, perhaps the slump of attention has given Britt the time he needed to complete the next LP of his long-running project Robedoor. Four-track effort Primal Sphere continues the duo's search for the final drone by means of slowly developing long form movements, massive sonic walls overwhelming the listener with assaults of heavily distorted guitars and occasional, truly menacing vocal incursions. Stream the nine and a half minute opening track "Stagnant Venom" exclusively below. (co-premiere with Tiny Mix Tapes)

Primal Sphere is out May 14 via Hands In The Dark.
