FREE CONCERT !!!
WEYRD SON RECORDS & TEENAGE MENOPAUSE RECORDS present:
Over the past 3 years Koban has been saturating the Pacific Northwest with their minimal synth tinged post punk hymns. Interchanging vocals, pulsing drum machines, driving bass, and a washed out wall of guitar noise comes together for a ferocious live performance. This duo's intense and eerie energy stems from the bleak and beautiful landscape of Vancouver BC; to create a dynamic sound that is both cold and mesmerizing. Surfacing originally in 2011 with their "Solid Gold" 7", Koban mreleased their first full length, "null", on The Broadway to Boundary in 2013 and are releasing their first EP on Weyrd Son Records this summer!
BLEAK SEVEN (De)
Bleak Seven is a one-man project started in 2013 by Matt Bleak (CANE!, Ackees, The Vendetta, and countless other bands) and a bunch of old synthesizers. Bleak Seven’s music is equally soaked in Robert Johnson’s Blues as well as synth classics such as the Normal, his sound is violent, taunting and leaves the listener with a haunting sense of hopelessness.
The first pressing of the Vinyl version of the album (limited to 100 copies) features the unique and stunning hand silk-screened cover artwork by internationally recognised artist Never2501
This one got sold out and is now in the process for a repress with little extras and goodies through Weyrd Son Records & Teenage Menopause RDS. This corelease is planned after this next summer...
