Roused At! pres. Witness K [EORA/SYD] & psilt // live at Alchemix
Roused At! presents: WITNESS K [EORA] & PSILT [MEANJIN] live at Alchemix.
Witness K are a music group from Gadigal country comprised of Lyn Heazlewood, Andrew McLellan (of Cured Pink/Enderie 'fame'), Maeve Parker and Sabina Rysnik. A live ensemble straddling rickety, ornate bits of fencing separating 'avant' and 'pop' sensibilities. They're coming up to Pig City for an intimate show to promote their self-titled LP, available via ever/never records.
"Sparse but thoughtful. Recitations punctuated by sparks of shoegaze interventions make the mood serene but with a constantly menacing undercurrent. The compositions, the playing, and the production are masterfully accomplished; clear, precise, and beautifully executed. Think if the Shadow Ring finally play with their idols ZNR and together they invite Florence Shaw and Roland S. Howard to do a non- commercial city pop record to be produced by Mica Levi. This album cuts through the confusing digital entropic reality, in order to give you the necessary space to reflect while wandering subtly through field recordings, poetry, and voices that take you to different situations at the edge of memory and consciousness." - ever/never bandcamp
psilt (fka Primordial Silt) are also a music group, except they're from here. Near-impossible to pin down in a physical/temporal sense. Compelling songcraft, crushingly visceral live performances, and other great mysterious near-eternally hidden behind the veil of ephemerality - they've seen your message, and there is a chance they're going to answer. They also have an debut LP coming out in ļ̸̈̎i̴̮͒t̵̢̥͐̐ḙ̵͐͂r̵̯͋̅a̵͔͉̓l̷̫̮̐l̴̲̉y̵̡̅ ̴̛̜̃w̸̡̽ḫ̶̚ơ̶̦ ̴̣͌t̸̪͖̎͐f̶͔̋̄ ̶̛̟̙̎k̵̫͕̆̽n̵͇̩̾o̴͖̾͆w̵̹̒s̸͇̀̆ via n̶̡̧̖̟̘̿̋̾̽ͅo̶̢̤̭͒̈͑́t̸̛̳̲͎̫̔͘ ̸̞͉͉̍̒̍ẹ̴̖̰̐́̄́̍v̶̙̖̺̦͔̯̑̀͘é̷͚̇̅̽́͛ṇ̶̜͈̝̞̏̀͋͠ ̸̣̥͐̑̔̐̑á̶̳̩̾͂̆ ̷̗̞̳̍͐͘s̵̮̬̺͂͑̃l̶̛̠͗̏̏͋̆͜į̵͓͍͓̞̻̍̈́́̈́ġ̴̬͎̞͓̄ḧ̷̨̡͚̰̝̫́̉̃̿̔t̴͉̅̆̿ ̴̧͍̟͑c̷̲͍̯̯͋̐ͅl̴̤͚̺͒̀̓͘͝u̷̢̖͈̘̭̅̊e̵̙̪̺͖̞̻̒ ̷̳͆͗͘.
