PLAYLIST: Thought Forms ‘On The Road’ Mix

Bristol noise act Thought Forms are currently in the midst of a UK headline tour supporting their recent album ‘Songs About Drowning’ which is out now on Invada Records, buy here: https://thoughtforms.bandcamp.com/album/songs-about-drowning

They’re stopping off at Cardiff’s Full Moon on February 14th alongside Esuna and Mega Bog, with Joy Collective DJs.

So we thought we’d ask them to compile a playlist for us of songs they listen to whilst they’re ‘On The Road’.Here’s Charlie from Thought Form’s explanations for picking each track below.

Chelsea Wolfe – Dragged Out

We’re all big fans of the latest Chelsea Wolfe album “Abyss”, this often ends up on the stereo.

Michelle Guervich – Party Girl

I first heard this song while we were on tour in France. It was late at night and we were driving through the countryside after a gig, trying to find a hotel. This was on the radio… I found it so captivating that I wrote down all the words as it was playing so that I could google it later.

Get The Blessing – Little Ease

A regular favourite in the car when we’re out on tour, our producer Jim Barr’s band. Only this time, we are bringing him along with us in person to play bass for us.

Repo Man – Static Excess Strobe Effect

Repo Man have such an amazing energy, they always look like they are having so much fun when they’re playing live. This is a song from their latest album “Minesweeping”.

Twin – Messiah

Twin is the solo project of Christelle Atenstaedt from Bristol band VENA CAVA, whose bass player Mardt Clancy we borrowed for our tours with Bob Mould and 65daysofstatic last autumn. Otherworldly hypnotic sounds perfect for driving through the British countryside.

Landslide Purist – Nearly Beloved

Landslide Purist were responsible for one of our favourite albums of last year, “Get Your Hopes Down”. Warm music that envelopes you and fills your heart with too much beauty.

Wenonoah – Streetwalker

This song has such a strong imagery and a dreamy richness. It feels like an old friend.

Bridget Hayden – Oh my ship, she is ready oh

Woozy underwater witchcraft vibes for drifting through the night.
