Times of chaos ring the bells for the newest sea-bottom R&B sound lurch from radical sonic artists Wolf Eyes. The USA’s longest-running homemade primitive electronic poetry and vibes trio launch another scotched taped nuclear audio front on humanity. The 2017 release ‘Undertow’ finds the trio diving into new depths of the electronic and free jazz infected world. A world they created themselves from scratch, running over the course of two decades.
Formed in 1996 in Detroit, Michigan, Wolf Eyes have recorded for Sub Pop, Troubleman Unlimited, De Stijl and most recently Jack White’s Third Man label, as well as their countless self-released documents of audio destruction and micro-run slabs of noise. The band have an insane history of collaborations, side projects and solo outputs. While staying consistently road-hardened they’ve shared stages with everyone from Sonic Youth to Anthony Braxton to Andrew W.K. to Aphex Twin to Morton Subotnick. The Wolf boys also continue to play gigs with all similar-minded outsider stoner / loner freaks in the world’s basements, from whence this beast originally emerged. Lower Floor Music is a brand new imprint dedicated to the group’s cultural vision.
The Lower Floor Music label will be curated by Wolf Eyes and feature both new and archival visions from the band as well as work by like-minded artists.
European tour to promote the album release date includes four UK dates (London, Brighton, Newcastle, Edinburgh).
