Checking in with Allston’s DON GERO led to the discovery of this new track, something from a new album being worked on is the word on the street. DON GERO’s game is one of the hybridization of churning industrial/tribal rhythms and the dense textures of historic shoegaze or dream pop. Vocals are part of the stew, as are prepared electronics swirling around and around begging you to follow the funnel down. I haven’t dug too deeply into DON GERO’s music before, but I have to start paying more attention as this is some real post-noise rock kind of thing that I could listen to A LOT of. Looking forward to that full length. This is Zach from ARVID NOE’s solo thing, you should know. You have to check out their new record. We’ll be discussing it here soon enough.
