Qujaku to release limited 200 EP, share new track

I have been rambling a lot in the past three years about the Japanese band Qujaku. The Hamamatsu-based Japanese band has become one of my favorite acts and not without reason, since they formed in 2013 they have released amazing music. In  2015 came their debut ‘ZyouK’ and they toured UK, Germany and Hungary, followed by a release of an EP, “KEIREN”. In 2017, they released an EP “H” and toured with 26 shows over Europe. In 2018 came their latest album ‘Qujaku’ wich immediatly became one of my favorite for 2018.

Qujaku is difficult to classify, they draw influence from Japanese legends like Keiji Haino and the mystical Les Reallizes Denudes, But that is not it, they have created their very own sound, a sound that can be so delicate and intricate and with the perfect transition they can shift to brutal riffs mixed with noise and agressive drumming. The soft vocals seem to fit in perfectly in either the extreme heavy parts as in the soft bits. Equal parts psychedelic as doom and noise, Qujaku as a refreshing and original take on modern heavy music.

Now enough blabbering! Their new EP ‘In Neutral’ will be released in limited print. their we be 200 EPs released and we can expect them on 26th of July on the So I Buried label. Now they shared their first track from that EP called ‘Gloria’. Again we can hear the band with their specific dark sound constantly on the verge of exploding. A gorgeous track from a band that needs to be heard, needs to be shared!

The band will tour again (and i will have the opportunity too see them again) and you will have to see them too if possible because they are an absolute force live.

Droneflower by Marissa Nadler & Stephen Brodsky

Marissa Nadler and Stephen Brodsky (Old Man Gloom, Cave In, Mutoid Man,…) have teamed up to make a dark and brooding record named ‘Droneflower’.

The album has an eerie, experimental feel to it. Marissa’s voice blends perfect in the folk/noise/fuzz that drones throughout the album.

Some tracks are soft and passionate but they can turn dark fast. ‘Droneflower’ has depth and is a piece of music that needs carefull listening.

Released April 26 on Sacred Bones.

 

Favorite track: Estranged
