We are understandably excited about the Locrian/Mamiffer collaborative LP Bless Them That Curse You, out now via SIGE/Utech/Profound Lore. As a result, we fanagled the world's most eloquent pugilist, Oxbow's Eugene Robinson, into discussing the release with both bands. The results of said discussion is below. -BBG
TWO + THREE = INFINITY or: How Mammifer and Locrian will make mad the weary and drown the stage in tears.
by Eugene S. Robinson
A lot of times, well almost more times than not, the math and the mathematicians bungle the fucking job and adding cool to cool just results in everything being half as much instead of twice as much cool. How this happens and why probably has everything to do with the fact that this is more about magic and less about math, and putting Aaron Turner and Faith Coloccia's Mammifer together with the fine young men in Locrian and the results are less about a subtle power and grace and much more about the first hand experiences of loss, failure, and unnamed corruptions.
Forthwith: a chat with AARON TURNER, FAITH COLOCCIA, TERENCE HANNUM, STEVEN HESS and ANDRE FOISY....

The inaugural Utech Festival went down over the weekend (on 6/11), in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It featured a deep lineup of bands that spanned the experimental, electronic, drone, noise, and ambient genres. The festival, spearheaded by the label of the same name, saw BV faves Horseback as headliners. Locrian (who produced the amazing The Crystal World) provided direct support, and the festival also featured Mamiffer, House of Low Culture (both of which contained Aaron turner of ex-Isis fame), James Plotkin, Jon Mueller, Gog, William Fowler Collins, Ural Umbo, RM74, and NYC's own Ithi. Pictures from the festival are in this post and continue below.
Horseback recently released The Gorgon Tongue via Relapse, a compilation of previous releases Impale Golden Horn and Forbidden Planet LPs into a single set. The band also recently posted a video for "Blood Fountain" which you can also watch below...
