Listen to the dark, hypnotic post-punk from new Waveless LP As One More Folded Paper Crane (Release show Saturday at Icehouse!)
Waveless have a strong track record, over a handful of LPs and Cassettes, of exploring the dark, hazy side of post-punk. They’ve continued the track record of making compelling, powerful, noisy and hypnotic material on their new Moniker Records released LP As One More Folded Paper Crane, which is out now. The record is six songs of tense, brooding songs that maximize the trios sound of guitar, bass and drums. The listening experience is almost overwhelming, with the songs mixed loud and the vocals and instruments saturating into each other, creating a wave of sound through your speakers or headphones. The tracks bleed into each other and the overall feel is minimal yet overwhelming, a trait the band have developed over their previous releases and live shows around town. It feels weird listening to a such a dark, agonizing record as the weather is starting to finally perk up here in Minnesota, but it doesn’t take away from the overall impressiveness of this record.
Getting picked up by the well-known Moniker Records label is a cool step for the group, and feels like a chance to get their sound out to even more people after making waves (pun intended) in the local scene. You can stream/buy the album (in various formats) via the bandcamp link below. The band is celebrating the release of the new record with a show Saturday night at Icehouse with Friendless Passenger. Music starts at 11pm and tickets are $10 at the door. More info HERE.
