A squiggly, wiggling new visual thing from SEDIMENT CLUB, a band scattered across New England, designers of uneasy sounds. This video for “B and the Electric Kill” comes some time after the band’s split release with GUERILLA TOSS (touched on here previously) from which the song originates. But add visuals to the music and the magic of the combo makes everything new again. And it’s a weird one, natch. The sounds I’m hearing in this SEDIMENT CLUB song are the sounds of the post-punk-ian finding of one’s self. From the get go this trio has been lurching, and scratching, losing the beat and finding it, all to their own beat drowned in rock deconstruction of yore. Here on this split, KICKED INTO THE CRYPT, my notions about SEDIMENT CLUB wobble, the squiggly lines of their music boundlessly cutting back and forth across acres of CRASS, BEEFHEART, and a legion of lesser knowns (but in moments justasgoods) who startled in their time and place with the fresh, elastic music they brought to the table. “B and the Electric Kill” is mournful and shambling, and then propulsive and adamant, and it is the strength of these kinds of musical conversations or stories that makes this music another kind of special. The video for the song was directed by Alessandra Hoshor who plays up the “other” vibes of the band’s partially deleted hypno-punk. Styrofoam kills. After witnessing the nastiness of this video’s styro-entity, and its digitally affected/ animated mischief, I will resolutely pass on that styro-plate thank you. I’d rather eat with my hands. KICKED BACK INTO THE CRYPT was released by SOPHOMORE LOUNGE. Grab that record. SEDIMENT CLUB have a new record in the can I believe. Maybe someone can enlighten us to the release plans of those latest recordings via comment??
