Sound Select Interview & Live Audio : Get To Know Zorch

imageimageZorch are currently on tour see ALL dates / details HERE

It’s hard being in any band – but it’s especially tough for a two-piece.

When a duo doesn’t work, they can sound like an incomplete group. When it does work, however, there’s a certain chemistry that other bands can’t replicate. The Austin-based twosome Zorch — which played a Red Bull Sound Select show last month in Dallas — has this chemistry in spades, along with a knack for creating the sonic illusion that there are more members. Almost every song has a layered depth that’s very tricky to pull off live; while the music might seem like it’s about to go off the rails, it’s intricately planned and coordinated.

Sam Chown (a.k.a. Shmu) and Zac Traeger first met as dorm-mates at Boston’s Berklee College of Music. They built up both a friendship and a musical relationship, improvising two to six hours a day, though it wasn’t until the two moved away from Boston that they began writing their own music. Their decision to stay a duo was inspired by fellow two-piecers Lightning Bolt and Death From Above 1979, along with the breakthroughs in synth and computer technology for live performance.

Deafheaven visited the Mandela Hall last month as part of their recent tour with No Spill Blood as support.

NPR Premiere Video: Emma Ruth Rundles’ “Arms I Know So Well”


This is debut music from the ethereal performer Emma Ruth Rundle. The video for “Arms I Know So Well" is a beautiful portrayal of solitude and living with one’s self, directed by Thomas McMahan. “Arms I Know So Well” is from her first album, called Some Heavy Ocean. Currently, she is on tour with Boris in her other project, a rock band called Marriages.


SPIN Premiere: Zorch Cover of Sgt. Pepper’s for Flaming Lips’ Tribute Album

imageimageimage

So far, the details about the Flaming Lips’ forthcoming tribute album to the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band are about as ambiguous as the chicken-scratch list of contributors frontman Wayne Coyne posted on Instagram. However, we now have a fresh cut from the recording process courtesy of Zorch.

We’re told the Austin psych-pop duo’s version of the famous LP’s titular track (below) is an outtake, and that Coyne also tapped Tegan and Sara, Foxygen, and My Morning Jacket for covers of the same tune. Some permutation thereof will end up on the final release, alongside the likes of Lips side project Electric Würms, Miley Cyrus, and Moby, whom we interviewed about the experience last month. We also had a chat with Coyne at Outside Lands about hitting the studio with Cyrus for the upcoming album, which is titled With a Little Help From My Fwends. According to the record’s iTunes preorder page, it’s is due out October 28.

Judging from Zorch’s contribution, the other bands who recorded a version of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” have a lot to compete with, including a painstaking and ingenious recording process. The pair enlisted vocalists like Holland Andrews, Emma Ruth Rundle, Karla Manzur, Ben Aqua, Rich Aucoin, and Sam Chown to sing the track, then cut up each syllable and pieced it back together. Each syllable is sung by a different combination of the vocalists that never gets repeated, and the result is a borderline-noise take on a classic anthem.

Premiere: The Guardian premieres Third album from Adebisi Shank

Irish math rock outfit Adebisi Shank take a ‘say what you see’ approach to naming records: This Is The Third Album Of A Band Called Adebisi Shank follows sophomore effort This Is The Second Album Of A Band Called Adebisi Shank and debut - you guessed it - This Is The Album Of A Band Called Adebisi Shank.

If Adebisi Shank’s album naming methods are a little functional, sonically they are anything but: the band were inspired by a diverse spread of influences in creating TITTOABCAS, including ELO, Enya, Mike Oldfield, Pixar, Crash Bandicoot and Game of Thrones. The result is a retro-futurist brand of math that sounds as close to 80s soft rock and hair metal as it does to the tricksy likes of Battles and Don Caballero.

Chelsea Wolfe Releases “The Waves Have Come” Video and begins European Tour July 25

Earlier this year, Chelsea Wolfe shared an intense video for her Pain Is Beauty track "Feral Love", which was an excerpt from a 52-minute film called Lone. Wolfe co-wrote the film with director Mark Pellington, who did Pearl Jam’s iconic “Jeremy” video and clips for Michael Jackson, Nine Inch Nails, U2, and others, plus the films Arlington RoadThe Mothman Prophecies, and more.

Today, she’s shared another excerpt from that movie, this time a video for the track "The Waves Have Come". Watch it below, via V Magazine.

In a statement, Wolfe said of the video:

“Most of this video is footage from the first time Mark and I shot together—he had built this dark room full of green ivy and it was just me, the dress from the album cover, a few lights, and him. It was the first time I realized what a director really is. Suddenly he was shouting, guiding me with instructions, emotions, telling me to act as if everything I was singing about—disaster and the loss of life and love—that it was all inside of me and at the same time to act as an observer of these things. He cut it together with found footage of families, intense nature and destruction and created this cathartic journey through it all.”

Lone is available now on a USB drive and will be out digitally this fall. Below the video, find Wolfe’s upcoming tour dates, including a few shows co-headlining with Deafheaven.
