Brooklyn Vegan: Castevet break up
                                       
                         
July 2014
Skull Practitioners
""st1 (tape)"

Where the genre of “psych rock” will usually refer to “psychedelic rock,” Skull Practitioners take it to a level where the meaning “psychosis rock” would be more appropriate, hurling harsh guitar tones and thumping bass haunts, along with an avalanche of drum fills, into a whirlwind of amplified delirium. The NYC trio produces a heavier and more diverse wall of sound than most five-piece bands out there, swelling and punching up and down scales and arpeggios, blasting through fuzz and decay, resulting in a bleakly intense look into a mind lost. With different vocalists featured on various tracks, it might be difficult to discern an established frontman, but does it matter? The sounds coming from Jason Victor and Ken Levine’s amps, back Alex Baker’s drums are the huge focus here. – JP Basileo

Weekly Feature: Ludwig Persik's Pianos Residency

Weekly Feature: Ludwig Persik's Pianos Residency

Ludwig Persik - whose debut "2012" EP was our NYC Record of the Month last July - possesses a "transversal" charm, with the potential to capture fans of Syd Barrett's crooked and surreal compositions ("Forward Motion"), beat-addicted avant-pop a-la Beck lovers ("Willow" and "Son"), and even those who - like us - miss John Lennon's playful flirtations with circus and parade music ("On The Town," streaming below). Ludwig recently landed a residency at Pianos, if you belong to the aforementioned categories you shouldn't miss his next shows on February 20 and 27. - Read Mike Levine's Interview with Ludwig Persik here.
