Whether it's a spell of creative fecundity or the influence of some new metal t-shirts, Jesse James Laderoute has had a rush of new material that falls outside of Blonde Elvis' sophisto-pop parameters. He's recently debuted Body Rot, a solo industrial endeavour as well as this doom-folk project, which was getting just its second public airing. With a deliberately compressed and tinny/trebly guitar tone, there was un underlying uneasy edge under the quartet of extended songs unveiled here — and plenty of slow and deliberate builds and clever loop-pedal deployment to craft layers of guitar sounds. This last one in the set came across most like a "folk song" — albeit one that got trapped in some foreboding forest.
[The next Track Could Bend is coming up on Tuesday (October 4th) and will feature CHOBO with Strings, Goosey (The Holy Gasp's Benjamin Hackman and Karen Ng), and INCHOATE.]
