Sludgefeast is set to bring a slow, low, and mind-expanding show to Brooklyn on November 15. The Bent Unit and Some Pig presented event is headlined by psych rockers NAAM and White Hills and will take place at Brooklyn's the Paper Box. Tickets are available now for a reduced price presale of $15. The full 11 band lineup appears in the flyer posted below.
NAAM released Vow on Tee Pee Records in 2013, drawing raves from those that enjoy tripping into warm, heady reveries of early psych and krautrock. White Hills, who released Glitter Glamour Atrocity on Thrill Jockey this year, follow the same path with a harsher result, reaching space with a biting guitar tone and plenty of noise. Both outfits are pretty familiar with each other, releasing a split together with Black Rainbows and the Flying Eyes back in May.
The rest of the bill includes Blackout's low-end-heavy howls, Wonderbreed's shrine to the stoner riff, It's Not Night: It's Space's infectious grooves and fried solos, and Eidetic Seeing's desert-y twang. A sampler of all the bands appears, along with the full lineup flyer, below...
