Dull Edges

NYC droners Dull Edges release "Half Shattered" EP at Cake Shop on 12.14

Admittedly, it's been an awful long time since I've heard an album-oriented drone record. While Sonic Youth certainly blazed a trail of noisy electricity years ago, it's high time for some new blood in this genre. Dull Edges have taken five perfectly composed pop tunes, and turned them into epic jams of staggering proportions. Just when you think you've heard the last melody wind its way out in track opener Washed Out (from new EP 'Half Shattered'), the song picks up again and reveals a whole new dimension to the staggered wall of haze emanating from this colorful trio. Throughout the EP, the band just seems to get louder and louder, especially in my fave 'Space Jam.' Built for anyone looking to escape Earth's orbit by amp wattage alone, Dull Edges's Half Shattered is just what you need for the trip. Check out the new record here, and come out to their album release Friday, December 14th at Cakeshop. - This band submitted their music for review here


Suspenseful psych rockers Dull Edges play Delancey on 04.24

Throwing their hat into the ever-growing ring of drone-fi, psychedelic, garage groove bands are Brooklyn’s Dull Edges. The two tracks available for free download at their bandcamp profile showcase a band not afraid to flirt with atmospheres which would perfectly fit a scary pagan ritual. “Sonned” slithers along deep bass and snare drum rumble as guitars snake their way around the forward marching progression. Murky, reverberated vocals appear to be delivering a cautionary tale of paranoid delusions. “Polarity” chimes like tubular bells from hell, with even more ghostly distant vocals. Big psych rock chords emerge from the depths like bubbling volcanic lava bursts. See them play at The Delancey on Tuesday, April 24th. - Dave Cromwell
