Thor Harris releasing dub reggae album ft Marissa Nadler, Zola Jesus & more (stream a track)
Thor Harris released Doom Dub, an album exploring dub reggae, back in 2020. He's just announced its sequel, Doom Dub II, which will be out July 22 via Joyful Noise. “It's possible that Dub is humanity’s greatest achievement," says Thor. "This is my humble homage to the original practitioners of the form." The album features guest appearances by Marissa Nadler, Zola Jesus, Mike Watt, composer Lawrence English, Adam Harding, Serbian pop-folk singer Marina Tadic, Thor & Friends bandmate Sarah “Goat” Gautier, and more.
The first released track from the album is "Day 447 of Quarantine" (most of the album's songs have similar titles) and it features Zola Jesus, Dorian Wood, and Shearwater collaborator Craig Ross. Thor is not messing with the dub form much, offering bone-rattling bass, sizzling, echoey percussion and oceans of reverb. LIsten below.
Thor also has a couple live shows coming up in Austin. Those are listed below.
