pan y rosas discos release catholic witches – questions about the hairbook

the newness from pyr is from catholic witches, a duo of free noise improvisers featuring alex and keith of piss piss moan moan moan and sky event respectively. building on the years they played together in the rories, their new album questions about the hairbook is drenched with sheets of feedback and heavily reverbed noise. low end bass rumbles the speakers and crunching loops lurch forward over skittering free drums. ecstatic drones, pulses, guitar skree all build into an extended monolith of low end roar and scifi theremin squall. musical telepathic conversation. get it here.
