Goaty Tapes no. 24
Sohni Chambers, a Sun Araw far-side project, finds an official release for pent up musical energies. Cameron Stallones and Nick Malkin are still traversing the same semiotic badlands, where pop culture signifiers are recontextualized with a dopey humor. But here they have a rougher and more immediate program. Rhythms hit harder, organ exercises swirl endlessly in a Dionysian blaze of primordial oneness.
Ya they might induce the sort of meditation we’ve come to expect from Stallones and his cohorts, but the genuine focus of these tracks is simple: a Galaxie 8180 electronic organ and a five-piece drumset—odd timbres, distortions, broken keys, buzzing echoes, etc. Stallones and Malkin are indeed wizards of levitated, shamanistic, and disembodied musical realities, here we see them straight on; two bros just letting shit out.
