Das Rad - Das Rad [Cassette]
From Weird Canada and the ethereal cavedom of Simon Frank:
Das Rad are Toronto’s ethereal cavemen. The black denim-clad trio’s wind tunnel rock is equal parts ecstatic chant and muddy trudge. Over rhythmic pummel, bass carries most structure and melody, leaving guitar and vocals to be united in waves of flange. “Silver Latrine” has the perfect title, dragging La Dusseldorf down to a filthy bathroom, while “Vacuum” pressurizes and tightens their approach to point that ghost harmonies emerge within the fuzz. Rad.
