KAMMOTH

Kammoth is the alter ego of Christchurch musical guru Cam Walker. Join this man of many talents on a post-rock sonic journey where seemingly impossible musical unions blend together in a marriage which should theoretically end in divorce. When he’s not creating soundscapes for your listening pleasure, Cam watches music documentaries, performs astonishing acts of guitar wizardry, and thinks about UFOs.

Kammoth #169 – Ducks be hangin’ all y’all

24.05.2020

Hymmmnnnn;

This here latest transmission, which you dearly hold in your cyber mits contains a couple of ‘worth-mentions’, by way of the new ‘Kidbug’ project that Mr Dumb Numbers himself has assembled with a close friend and a few passing friends (Mr Crover on the traps for the final number).  ’tis yet another reliable addition to the ever-expanding Joyful Noise roster.

Another magic mentionable muso enters the tracklist by way of a wonderful late Turkish chap by the name of Barış Manço (the tailed ‘s’ being pronounced like ‘sh’ in English and the similarly tailed ‘c’ being similar to ‘ch’; the ‘i’ without the dot is also a ‘thing’, but last time I checked this was a linguistics forum!).

Dan the Automator is typically superb, the opening piece by ‘Aa’ slowly eases the said listener into a hairy mix of creative styles, collaborations, cultures, countries and timestamp et al.

Give your cilia a well-deserved jive with the following musical works:

01 Aa – Homecoming

02 Kidbug – Together

03 Birth Control – Rollin’

04 Discordian Popes – Fight The Hits

05 Lost Crowns – Let Loving Her Be Everything

06 Shabazz Palaces – Fine Ass Hairdresser

09 Better Oblivion Community Center – Exception to the Rule

12 blktop project – pedro’s fever

13 Bee Mask – Moon Shadow Move

14 Anak Ko
