KRAUTROCK FROM HELL PARTY n°5:
MUGSTAR (uk - rockaction records)
Mugstar are the sound of 10,000 suns exploding, pulsing and repetitive beauty, sounding like a sonic mantra. Mugstar set sail for the sun in 2002 and have completed numerous voyagers with the likes of Mogwai, Melt Banana, Oneida and Acid Mothers Temple.
Their tireless work ethic and astonishing, internationally renowned, live performances have earned them a much deserved status as cult heroes. Their first single 'Spotlight Over Memphis' caught the ears of late and great radio legend John Peel, who later went on to record them as his last-ever Peel Session in 2004. A subsequent string of singles, EP's and several full-length albums make up the band's back catalogue, not to mention a split release with Mudhoney, one with Oneida (on Rocket Recordings) and a collaboration with Damo Suzuki (on Important Records).
"Magnetic Seasons", their last album for Rock Action Records (the Glaswegian label run by Mogwai) sees Mugstar shifting through a whole range of newfound sonic gears. With fresh layers and swathes of texture stretching out a much broader aural vocabulary than is often permitted during their explosive live shows, "Magnetic Seasons" is a game changer for Mugstar. Not just in terms of length, but in its fluidity and its breadth of moods and emotions locked within the songs.
They played already on the KRAUTROCK FROM HELL N°3 and we were looking for a good occasion to invite them again after the release of Distress Distress.
João Pimenta (drums/vocals), Pedro Pestana (guitar) and André Couto (bass), emerged from what they call “a dark, decadent city of a peripheral country in a peripheral continent”: Porto, Portugal. They formed in 2012 and soon released a four track EP, triggering some national buzz and, as many great guitar bands these days, they stumbled upon the international Psych community. They eventually shared stages with the likes of A Place To Bury Strangers and Wooden Shjips and getting signed to Fuzz Club to release their first full length record.
In opposition to most of their peers, 10,000 Russos have concentrated on creating soundscapes of the subconscious. The working environment has been fundamental to the flow of their long, obscure urban jams. Recalling the savage and repetitive progressions of Neu! and the longest and grimmest drones of Suicide, the marching heart-beat in the background gives the music the stomp of a solemn drumming ritual across the wastelands of the mind.
Lil' Tone est le projet mené par Tony McDowell, un franco-britanique installé à Bruxelles. Proposant des mélodies à la guitare entrelacés à des nappes joués sur séquenceur, Lil' Tone produit des sonorités combinant folk-rock et synth-pop tout en s'inspirant d'influences comme Cate Le Bon, John Maus et Angel Olsen.
