Nw Music: Yamantaka//Sonic Titan- One
Apparently experimental Montreal band Yamantaka//Sonic Titan are absolutely amazing to see live and their shows are more performance art than rock concert. I have always wanted to go see one of their shows but have never got around to it. The self described "noh-wave" band love playing Toronto so I'm a sure I'll see them sooner or later.
They are also incredible in the studio, making some of the weirdest experimental sounds in pop music today. Their simply titled new single "One" is anything but simple. The track starts out slowly with Iroquois chants and then breaks into a swirling mess of goodness that features loud metal guitars, operatic voices, crazy lyrics and more aboriginal chants. The mixture of all these ingredients make the song a beautiful prog rock/psych freak out, stand out. Download the track below:
Yamantaka//Sonic Titan will release their new album UZU on October 29th via Paper Bag/Suicide Squeeze.
