Föllakzoid / SQÜRL @ Rough Trade 5/23/2015
Chilean psych band Föllakzoid wrapped up their North American tour over the weekend, playing NYC at Rough Trade on Saturday (5/23). The band ride motorik, krautrock grooves with extended psychedelic passages and their live show (which I caught at Austin’s Levitation) was some trip. The music by opening band, SQÜRL, may not be known by that many, but more probably recognize the snowy, shock of a coif on their vocalist/guitarist as that of famed indie filmmaker (and Follakzoid’s Sacred Bones labelmate) Jim Jarmusch. It was a double umlaut kind of night. Pictures continue below.
