The Drood bring the ritualistic catharsis in ‘It Must Needs Wither’.

The Drood

The essence of The Drood’s latest single, It Must Needs Wither is a captured ritual. An invitation to cherish the memories of the many lives lost in the years leading up to this Shakespearean release that took inspiration from the tragic play Othello.

For their ritualistically cathartic release, the Denver, Colorado-based electronic duo, used post-rock, Eastern psych and industrial for their dreamy textures. For the vocals, they opted for an ethereal quiescent timbre to rival the harmonic ambience in the dreamiest Beach House and Slowdive releases.

The haunting explorative progressions carry cynical lament while light transcendent textures bring comfort to the affirmation that for all of our artifices, we’re still the same primal creatures. Primal creatures plagued by the vulnerability of mortality and the psychological afflictions that drive us to acts of madness that are all too easily romanticised in our minds.

It Must Needs Wither will officially release on January 25th, 2022. You can check it out for yourselves via Spotify.

Daniele Montagner (Ensemble Voyagers) – Kaos : Experimental Ritual World Music

You should be open to experimental world music in order to endure this song -let alone truly enjoy it. If acts like the experimental fusion group Goat from Sweden excite you, then you have to keep reading.

The song that we will be putting under our microscope today is “Kaos” and there’s quite a lot going on. During its first seconds the song brings to mind a shamanistic ritual; shortly after we can hear a tambourine and a drum kit, both playing simultaneously yet on different tempos. Although slightly disharmonic, this does not create any confusion, while in various points female ethereal vocals alternate with ritualistic chanting; the percussion will not stop until the end of the song. It ends with a dramatic finale.

Interesting sound, blending sounds that although the average urban listener might not be too familiar with, it will be a pleasant listen for the curious listener. If you’re intrigued enough to visit Daniele Montagner Facebook page, you will see that a photo of three roosters adorns his header photo, which I find perfectly aligned to the weirdness of his music.
