- Deep Trip by Destruction Unit
Here from reliable purveyors of gritty darkness Sacred Bones this week is this album from Destruction Unit. I’ve never heard of them before but I trust the label so here goes. From the off they’re making lots of nasty noise, which eventually turns into some pounding goth-punk business with a noisy psychedelic edge like if Bauhaus took too much speed and flipped out. The second song sounds like a cross between the Sisters of Mercy and the Dead Kennedys...
Phil’s saying it sounds like some old AmRep stuff like God Bullies or Halo Of Flies, it’s reminding me a bit of fellow Sacred Boners Pop. 1280. Now I’m on the third song and it’s a bit dirgier. This is good stuff, gothy noise rock that doesn’t seem to take itself too seriously. Totally worth a go. I’m on a tight reviewing schedule or I’d say more but I listened to the whole thing earlier and enjoyed it.
9/10 Andy Customer review, 14th August 2014
Frankly, it’s a delightful, demented journey into pure psych chaos. Essential listening.
Destruction Unit appreciates chaos, as their guerrilla bridge show a few SXSWs ago demonstrated, but Deep Trip proves they know how to play their instruments even if ducking behind a wall of squall.
Too many records are boring. This one is visceral and scary, which is an improvement.
