Today is the launch of SMR006 - the split between Brisbane's two most underrated noisy outfits, Danyl Jesu and Barge With An Antenna On It.
Danyl Jesu is a duo obsessed with the transmogrification of bowels-of-the-earth tape manipulation, vocal viscera and percussive brutality. Lachlan Malone (of metal degenerators O) and Tom Roche (skinsman for a bevy of acts such as the aforementioned O, the Rational Academy and Roku Music) eschew the tropes of the metal genre by casting off guitars altogether, instead intent on melding a contemporary synthesis of electronic destruction, organic percussion and tape manipulation. Celebration is the first stage in this dark manifesto. Danyl Jesu has crafted a serrated capsule of early industrial white noise, artificial drone and shoegaze wash, coalescing into an abrasive sound that is easy to swallow – a corrosive opiate for the masses.
The bands launch the album alongside Spirit Bunny and Brainbeau at The Bearded Lady June 12.
