Wyrd Distro

Sex Church - Somnambulist [12"]

9 CAD / In stock.
Vancouver, BC
The Somnambulist 12” is a straight-line descent into Sex Church psychosis. Churning and grinding like a bellyful of barbed wire, this ceaselessly bleak Vancouver crew pops their latest dose of downers on 45 rpm. “Hidden Hand” skulks off the needle drop with torture chamber vox and a spiked wall of sound, before “Slipped” rockets from the tomb on a pulse-quickening riff ripped from the pages of their beloved Cheater Slicks. Switch it to the “Wrong Side” and the tempo plunges down to Flipper territory via death-march guitars, thunderstruck drums and sinister sax. Props to St. Henri pirate Shaun Anderson for raising the flag on Instant Pleasure and the continued unfuckwithability of thee Psychic Handshake.
