The best way to describe ‘Rewilding’ is a as a dark and sonically twisting journey. A morbid soundscape as brilliant as it is musically brooding and festering.
Having said that, I can’t stop listening. This is a fascinating album. Not structured like the musical ‘standard’ at all. Originality at it’s purist. I have to rethink how I play guitar because I have all these ideas I never had now.
Listen with an open mind, an open heart, and a closed door. Tell the roommates/kids/significant other to fuck off for the day. And put this on repeat.
About Dead Sea Apes
Dead Sea Apes are back with a passion to deliver their most essential and cohesive album to date. Formed in 2009, Dead Sea Apes have become a fixture of the modern-day psych scene, sharing stages with the likes of Part Chimp, The Heads, Acid Mothers Temple and Mugstar while producing a distinctive body of work, ranging from psychedelic punk to experimental dub, from freeform jams to constructions of loops and drones.
Following a slew of collaborations and split releases, Rewilding sees them return to a ‘power trio’ of Brett Savage (guitar), Jack Toker (bass) and Chris Hardman (drums).
From the chaotic blast of opener ‘Denialist’, beaming out like a maniacal emergency broadcast, through to the brutal, monolithic pounding of the title track, Rewilding is unrelenting, taking in blown-out guitar wails and jet black psych noise while the irrepressible rhythm section moves from claustrophobic motorik beats to a thunderous rolling juggernaut.
These blackened pearls have been recast and refined over the course of the past three years, strung out deeper than the night and now embodying our present uncanny, disorienting times, as we emerge into an altered world to find Mother Nature reasserting herself while the human madness intensifies, locally and globally. Savage and uncompromising, this is Dead Sea Apes at their most direct and visceral.
Dead Sea Apes – Rewilding is released by Cardinal Fuzz (UK/Europe) and Feeding Tube Records (USA) as an edition of 750 on black vinyl on 28th April 2023.
