Listen to Plague of Carcosa

The Pitch: Chicago-based doom, drone, noise, and experimental guitar playing in F standard tuning from Plague of Carcosa. Influences include SunnO)), Bong, Thou, and Bongripper.

What I Like: Rats In The Walls is consistently hypnotic depsite its somewhat repetetive approach. The duration is made up of just a handful of bassy riffs, but the way in which they are performed and constructed spins this straw into gold. The textured drumming doesn't hurt either. And just when I was starting to wonder how long they could stretch the main hook, Plague of Carcosa deliver an excellent break and transition at the halfway mark.

Critiques: There's not much here to go on. What we get is solid and proves that the band understand less is more, but I'll need to to hear more content to give a larger appraisal of the band.

The Verdict: Rats In The Walls is a short, but enjoyable, release that turns a handful of ideas into a trancelike experience. Definitely check this project out.
