-valis Pick of the Week
Walthamstow's own, The Oscillation! Their new album, Veils, is out on All Time Low, who've said:
"...It is almost three years since the release of The Oscillation's debut album 'Out Of Phase' for DC recordings. In those three years the band have played live all over the world to great acclaim and Demian Castellanos has clearly honed his musical vision. Whilst the debut album was dominated by stripped back grooves and motorik rhythms 'Veils' sees The Oscillation sound mature in numerous ways: song craft and introspection adding to the already rich sonic textures to create a powerful and varied new collections of songs. From the industrial pulse of 'Future Echo' to the haunted b-movie swagger of 'Fall', the disco dub fury of 'Telepathic Birdman' to the ecstatic melancholy of 'See Through You', the album features a remarkable spectrum of sonic experiences that range from beautifully crafted melodic songs to droning, no-wave chaos."
You can listen to the archived stream here; or, hear it this Friday, on The Dead Man's Turn Me On, Dead Man show on Live365, where it's heard every Friday at noon eastern time, as well as Mr. Atavist's Sunrise Ocean Bender show, heard every Friday from 3 to 6am eastern, on WRIR in Richmond, VA.
