HeadlessMantis - Blech
Headless Mantis, an experimental psych rock duo, has released two tracks as an EP called Blech. Opening with a soundbyte from Zorak from Space Ghost Coast to Coast (the most evil mantis known to man), “SpeakGreasy” is some good ol’ swamp rock complete with rough edges. Post-rock spatial qualities and garage influences demarcate “Sewer Baby (Shaky Hands).” These guys know how to make things loud without sacrificing the rest of their dynamics’ fluctuations.
Catch HeadlessMantis on 4/25 @ Bigg’s BBQ w/ Imaginary Sons. 9 pm, not sure on the cover.
