Industrial psych-rockers GHXST share digital album "Gloom," play SXSW on 3/13

Brooklyn electronic psych rock duo GHXST dropped their latest digital album “Gloom” at the end of 2018. After playing a select number of hand picked shows around the release date, they are now preparing to showcase the new material at this years SXSW music festival. Lead track “Hunger” immediately establishes a dark, slow-burn foreboding that places emphasis on deep-end howling guitars, many of them sampled. Dreamy female vocals come adorned with a level of unsettling doom that would surely please David Lynch and his fans. Additional tracks like “Ocean is a Desert” and “Vaquero” continue that vibe while adding eery electronic elements reminiscent of Swiss industrial guitar-rock pioneers The Young Gods. “Bad Blood II” introduces a pulsating electronic synth progression, while “Ride” digs down into a bass-tone heavy groove that A Place To Bury Strangers frequently resides. Final track “Heatwaves” incorporates bended slide-guitar along with its apprehensive vocal delivery, dark ambience and snaking progression. GHXST will be performin at an official SXSW showcase on 3/13 at BD Riley's. - Dave Cromwell

JP's CMJ 2014 Day 1: Vomitface, PC Worship, Broken Water, GHXST, Calvin Love, The Mystery Lights, O.J. Pimpson, Dream Police, Echo Bloom

This is my first time covering CMJ. I’d attended in the past, but never with an actual agenda. It’s overwhelming from the get-go. Having an under-established or unclear schedule is like being in a life raft with no oars, in the middle of the ocean. Alone. I made an all too familiar mistake from step one, getting in the artists’ line to pick up my press badge. It was a bit of a wait, but I met a cool dude from a band called Echo Bloom, who calmed my nerves (his band's music excels at that too, see track below), as I was afraid of missing the first showcase I wanted to see, only to find out at the end of said line, that I didn’t have to wait at all. The press booth line was just about non-existent, and the performer booth was kind of spilling over, giving the illusion of two separate lines. What the hell. This kind of set the tone for the day. - Keep reading JP Basileo's CMJ Music Marathon 2014 Day 1 report.

NYC Noise Rock newcomers: GHXST

“Black Camaro,” the new single by Brooklyn self defined "Death Grunge" trio GHXST, immediately runs roughshod over our ears with a wave of muscular guitar blasts. Its power and pulse shares a sonic kinship with bands like A Place To Bury Strangers or perhaps even Helmet, with vocals reminiscent of the more controlled expressiveness of vocalists like Allison Mosshart of The Kills - but completely drenched in reverb. “Doomgirl” continues this mode, with a slithering groove and sexy come-hither-to-my-junkie vocal performance. “Shallow” stomps mid-tempo as the sensual vocals purr how “I love what you do, my baby.” Snaking slide guitar ride over a solid foundation of fuzz bass and power chords. Its sex music for jaded thrill seekers. - Dave Cromwell
