Local fuzzed-out sonic slayers SPANYURD released an EP, PCeP last year full of the heavy, mathy, apocalyptic noise that we’ve come to expect from this local trio. In the words of the Reader, “standout tracks sling spark-throwing breakdowns and disjointed rhythms in such messy profusion that it’s impossible to keep track of any sort of structure – which is probably just the way these guys prefer it.” It’s been a while since we’ve played host to PONTIAK and their new effort Echo Ono, out via Thrill Jockey, has been dubbed “one of the first great rock records of 2012,” by Knox Road. The nine-tracks on the LP take listeners on a room-shaking, mind-altering, jaw-dropping magical mystery tour for heavy psych rock fans – a road trip record with a heavy emphasis on “trip.” Opening up tonight are locals PISS PISS PISS MOAN MOAN MOAN, who are at times intimidating, at others serene. Their chilling electronic compositions are captivating and primarily instrumental – save for a bit of chanting and screaming.
