THE WHALER'S REST
CDr limited to 77 copies.
New album of total amplifier-worship-reverence and crucial spontaneous guitar-aktion from Glasgow’s Smoke Jaguar, currently the most eardrum splitting/loving band in Scotland. The four tracks here are a heavy as lead mix of faraway single-note lines of Haino-reverb and piercing high-end catastrophe from Kevin McCarvel, that wrap around Stuart Crutchfield’s massive dunts of feedback scuzz and explosions of scree/skronk. This new record is the most advanced element of heft yet in this group’s documentation of pure-overdriven-guitar-vocabulary, w/ no high-concept give ‘n take bullshit, just bounce-off-the-back-of-yr-skull ferocity.
