It’s Psychedelic Baby presents: White Hills – “As You Pass By” premiere
Fuzz Club Split Single No. 8 – New York’s most prolific space rock duo and favourites of Jim Jarmusch, White Hills, face off against rising avant-garde instrumentalists RMFTM (Radar Men From The Moon).
Joining Fuzz Club Split Single alumni The Black Angels, Alan Vega and A Place To Bury Strangers are the suitably spaced out and abstract pairing of White Hills and RMFTM. Both have delivered 10 minute tracks of colossal proportions that are typical to their recent offerings, and will get audiences excited ahead of their many festival appearances in Europe this summer.
Stoner/psych/space duo White Hills has a catalogue spanning 40 releases over the past decade, gaining them a cult following and an appearance in the Jim Jarmusch rock n roll-inspired vampire flick Only Lovers Left Alive.
They contribute their space-rock epic “You Pass By”, which is a climactic otherworldly mix of swirling electronics building up as deep bass roils beneath singer Dave W’s gravelly vocals until the song erupts into a whirlwind of bluesy distorted guitars and hammering bass by his partner Ego Sensation. It’s underpinned by a chilling spoken word sample, and just as the journey reaches a climax the track unexpectedly severs itself from your experience.
White Hills are paired with Dutch instrumentalists RMFTM, who have released three sold-out albums since their debut in 2013, and the single ‘Decadence’ which is typical of their explorative style. ‘Decadence’ continues in the hypnotic, abstract sound RMFTM have built with their previous releases and invites fans to follow them deeper down the musical rabbit-hole.
Both acts share a love of the surreal and approach music as experimental art. Their avant-garde soundscapes are the perfect foil for one another.
