SUMAC & KEIJI HAINO – “NOW I’VE GONE AND DONE IT I SPILLED HOLY WATER (JUST WATER) OVER THAT THING CALLED HEALING MUSIC……………………………. / THERE WAS A FAINT “TSK”NOISE”

Sumac, the project of former Isis frontman Aaron Turner, bassist Brian Cook (Russian Circles, Botch), and drummer Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists), collaborated with Japanese experimental musician for Keiji Haino for 2018’s American Dollar Bill – Keep Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look at Face on, and now they have a new joint project, Even for just the briefest moment / Keep charging this “expiation” / Plug in to making it slightly better, due out June 28 via Trost. The first single is the 15-minute “Now I’ve gone and done it I spilled holy water (just water) over that thing called healing music……………………………. / There was a faint “Tsk”noise”

KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD – “SELF-IMMOLATE”

You may recall Australia’s King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard released “Plan B” which found them heading in a decidedly metal direction. If you dug that here’s more where that came from: “Self-Immolate” is another heavy shredder with an equally incendiary video.
