Exclusive Premiere: Husbandry – Biralata

biralata

In Brooklyn you find a band that has its roots down under, but above the ground they reside with post-punk overtones. With their interesting combination of metal, experimental rock, post-hardcore and post-punk they make way for who they’ve become. Since they haven’t been around for that long, let alone put out anything besides their newly released “Make Room For Waves” EP, it’s great to hear something fresh once in a while. With this comes Husbandry, whose singer sounds like somewhere in between Katzenjammer Kabarett‘s original misanthropic tone and the rather mesmerizing moments with the band reliq. Together with the breakdowns of pro-longed post-hardcore junkies caught in a time-machine. The band itself consists of Carina Zachary, Jordan Usatch, Arnau Bosc and Andrew Gottlieb. The fascinating thing about this release is that it was recorded during a weekend back in April this year, which makes it about a month later that they’re releasing it for the world to listen to.

So I got the opportunity together with Husbandry to put out one of the tracks from this release, on Repartiseraren. The track wasn’t really chosen by me to begin with, but I think it’s their best track on this release by far. Because in it they showcase the greatness of structured post-hardcore with post-punk baselines that soar through the landscape, together with erratic drums that keep the tempo to a max.  Just as they come into some kind of weird medley whereas Carina Zachary with her vocals make it an endurable process to listen to, as it moves back into the sound-scape which they created before. Moving back to the intermezzo once again in another part of the track, making it a very predictable but at the same time unpredictable track. I simply adore the melodies that are laden before me when you’ve taken yourself through it, together with cluttering hi-hats and complex rhythms howling in the background as the vocals feel even more dedicated and soulful. The track chosen for exclusive premiere was “Biralata“, a six-minute long song which you can listen to down below. If you’re interested in buying their album you can go to their Bandcamp.

Modern Movement was founded in Berlin year 2010, as a platform for different concepts. Their main focus have mainly been limited to eclectic, nocturnal sub-genres. Brought up by people with, as they call them; “ambitious, international misfits with irreproachable taste“. Developing the often applauded creativity of Berlin. Involving filmmakers, photographers, DJ’s, artists, musicians and performers. Arranging events, parties and the likes of it. One of the main persons behind this rather newly emerged “movement”, if you want to call it that, is Jen Ellerson. A tireless promoter from Berlin, who decided to make something of the different bands, artists and groups that have slowly emerged from the center of it all. This, in turn, led to the advancement of the compilation that celebrates it all – namely the forthcoming release “V/A – Modern Movement – The Compilation“, getting put out by the German label aufnahme + wiedergabe. Featuring the artists, groups and bands: Gertrud Stein, Jemek Jemowit, Mary Orcher + Your Government, Germinal, Noisy Pig, Privacy, Nao Katafuchi, Velvet Condom, Petra Flurr + Modernista, Aniaetleprogrammeur, Nuclear Family, Mueran Humanos, Sixth June, Oberst Panizza, Bloodygrave & Die Lust!, Reckless Redemption, Team PI​$​$ and reliq.
