THAT IS WHAT IS UP




THIS IS ALSO WHAT IS UP


THURSDAY, JANUARY 22
AT HIGHLINE
210 BROADWAY E

CULT OF YOUTH (NYC)
"Sean Ragon has been active in the DIY punk, industrial and experimental music communities on the east coast for over 15 years while also running a record store and label in Brooklyn (Heaven Street and Blind Prophet Records, respectively). He has been recording under the moniker of Cult of Youth for the last five years. Cult of Youth eventually expanded into a four piece, which landed them on tours with Zola Jesus, Cold Cave and Iceage. They caused quite a stir; not only among more indie-centric press outlets such as Pitchfork and Stereogum, but with underground publications such as Heathen Harvest and Special Interests magazine as well.

For their third full-length for Sacred Bones, Cult of Youth have delved deeper into their style of punk-influenced psychedelic neofolk and created a self- described “post-industrial Pet Sounds.” Using acoustic and electronic instruments, found sounds and an extensive tribal rhythm section, Cult of Youth have put it all out on the table and left us with their magnum opus.

The band has returned with a renewed sense of enthusiasm and an all-new lineup. Sean Ragon, once the project’s lone member, is now flanked by Jasper McGandy on bass and Christian Kount on electric guitar (both of whom were members of seminal Sacred Bones band The Hunt). Cory Flannigan on drums and Paige Flash on cello complete the five-piece. The end result is Cult of Youth as they were always meant to sound.

The contributions of the new members are evident on every track on Final Days, from the anthemic “Empty Faction” to the gorgeous album closer “Roses.” Final Days is the culmination of everything Cult of Youth has been moving towards the past seven years — post-industrial, post-punk, and post-enlightenment.

Addendum: Real human bones were used on this recording and a portion of the lyrics were written in jail."

HIVE MIND (LA)
isolated industrial misery to drown out the outside world and revel in personal blight

HAUNTED HORSES
- Haunted Horses are an industrial-punk trio hailing from Seattle, WA. Their sound has been described as bizarre and experimental, utilizing wall of noise techniques and thunderous drums galloping through dark tones. Seattle's The Stranger describes the band as "a furious onslaught of sound rarely found these days, at times channeling prime-era Liars in their cacophonies of claustrophobic angst." In the spring of 2015, the band will record their next full-length LP with producer Bill Rieflin (Ministry, Swans, King Crimson).
