Vinyl 7" £5.49 HZR-135
7" on HoZac.
More HoZac goodness on this here 7”, this time from Verma, who I hadn’t heard before. It’s kind of got a kraut-goth thing going on with echoed and muffled Zola Jesus hollers, repeato bassline and sheet-metal guitars hovering dizzily over it all. The A side is a pretty lengthy number, with the 7” playing at 33rpm. I can’t make out any of the words but it’s got a great psychedelic repeato groove to it like a nocturnal Follakzoid, helped along by some wibbling synth towards the end.
Over on the other side ‘Chrome’ is noisier and more anarchic, opening with some impenetrable guitar splatter and a pounding beat before easing off into a kind of MBV-played-at-45 gothgaze speedfest with some nice interplay between the synth and shattered-crystal guitar stabs. I think I like this one even better than the A side but they’re both good songs.
