If anyone ever made rumble to score a dance party for Lovecraft's Old Ones, Mike Reisinger does. Tales of a set to remember at the Aquarius Recs./WFMU SXSW showcase led me to the Epileptinomicon CDr, Changeling House Summer—a lurching, sub-fi epic of basement gloom; an enveloping soundtrack to several nightmares, like German Oak taking five, while a sleep-deprived MB fucks around with their gear. Known as ECON for syllabic efficiency, the project has just released a new disc, "II," a work no less haunted, but of perhaps even greater subtlety and soul-exploration.
ECON's Reisinger visits the Castle on tour (from Denver, CO) with the duo project MjolniirDXP (with friend Zack Writer on drums and synth)—guaranteed to be ECON plus, with a slithery bottom end, live drums, more doom, and more loopy churn to support the amorphous drag of the Old Ones above. With one set each from MjolniirDXP and Epileptinomicon, this eagerly anticipated Colorado horror-rock, with hints of Chrome, film scores, and the LAFMS, comes "home" to My Castle of Quiet.
Battering ram does its job @ midnight.
