✭Negro Spirituals✭ are a trio of splatter punk roustabouts from the rural declines of Appleton, WI. Some dubious associations to technicolor teeth and Tenement were hinted, but we ignored that and signed ‘em all the same. Just so happens we stumbled upon an unlikely mersh of smeared couch goth stained with a stinging death pop lean.

What puts “Black Garden” over the top is an accelerated Swell Maps clamor that, around the 3’45” mark, unravels deliriously for a full on extra minute of unhinged tilt. “Ancient Trees” reassembles the sacred bones of unloved gaze and cuts an exceptionally vertical deep wound.

A Wicked Company is a NYC based distant relative to ye olde Vertical Records by way of some carbonic DNA (FB link below). AWC will serve as our current rent party for cosmic crunk, outer limits, fire music, mutant zoundz, stuzzadelic noise, beard rock and a 2013 vintage of combustible sonic arts. We also partner with secular coalitions and practitioners of free thought akteon. ... more
