PC Worship – “Mellow Moon”
I’ve never had the good fortune of attending Obey Convention, Canada’s premier weirdo music festival, but that hasn’t stopped me from using them as a guide to new music. It is through their curation that I found out about Brooklyn’s PC Worship and I can’t thank them enough for it. The Justin Frye-led band is the perfect mix of evisceration and enlightenment. They are a blender of shredded genres and their newest 7-inch on Sophomore Lounge is another reflection of that twisted versatility. A-side “Preach Under Cooked” dives straight into the American Primitive tradition with a solo guitar recording that carves its teeth into the fretboard while letting the sunlit glow bathe the strings. B-side “Mellow Moon” on the other hand (streaming below), heads to a damp basement for an all out sludge party. There’s a genuinely creepy vibe to this song reminiscent of the damaged electronica of Eric Copeland. Whatever “classic” PC Worship means, this is it. Purchase a copy of this single from Sophomore Lounge and check out their Beat Punk LP from earlier this year on New Images Ltd.
