NYC Artists on the rise: Eraas - live at Mercury on 09.04

NYC Artists on the rise: Eraas - live at Mercury on 09.04

For those of you out there who might remember the head-on post rock of Connecticut's Apse, it's time for something decidedly... different - from some of the same musicians, now based in Brooklyn. Where that band reveled in complicated tapestries of ambient texture, Eraas dials the textures down, preferring to slice with a fine-tipped scalpel instead. Their two latest tracks exist in the same shadows as the eerie cover art for their self-titled debut set for release on October 1st. "Fang" especially sinks its claws into a booming sub-bass and demonic vocals that swing across it's canyon space. A stark vision in contrast to the band's older work, it's about time someone tried to scare the eardrums off the L train crowd. Watch it happen yourself when the band plays The Mercury Lounge on September 4. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
