Ejaculation Death Rattle (with Soressa Gardner)

"...earthy ecstatic deathtrips... kinda like lyin' back naked in a bed of moss as serpents crawl on your flesh..." - Allan MacInnis

“It was hard not to be entertained by headliners, Ejaculation Death Rattle. Their name and stage antics were bound to turn heads (one band member’s sole role was to don an executioner’s mask and give his bandmates mid-set massages), but the group’s mix of loops, strings and horns was a beautiful mess of sounds.” – Quin Omori, Chart Attack

mimimalist/electroacoustic/musique concrète

Yellow Thief

"Lightning Bolt meets Slayer meets Slint" - Ross Birdwise
