Track Of The Day #706: Fews – ILL


Taking us on a sonic odyssey today are mysterious Swedish / American four-piece Fews with ‘ILL’ eight minutes of rumbling motoric beats and psych flourishes, while ominous vocals pour forth like lava over a mountainous terrain. Expanding into a Komische laced time tunnel of spiralling crescendos and frequency shifts, ‘ILL’ is superb, like several mini mind bending epiphanies in one track, it’s the sound of the experimental percussive undulations of CAN colliding with the noisy adventurousness of Sonic Boom. ‘ILL’ is released on Speedy Wunderground which records its releases in one day.
