Download: Funerals – To the End
Funerals, Mollie Wells and Casey Immel-Brown, make the sort of acidic techno which reminds me of the times when, at 4am in a basement somewhere, everything goes really cold and clear and for a second you are just left with the music. It’s the sort of haunting tech that owes as much to late 80s acid house, with its etheral female vocals layered above splatterings of bass, as it does to more recent IDM, which lends it a much more sinister and confrontational pacing and ambiance.
Unfortunately for us in the UK Funerals belong to Ohio in the USA, that is not to say that they are not getting recognition in Europe, later this week a mix for Vice Italy will drop which you should be able to find on their soundcloud sometime next week if you can’t navigate Italian (it’s definitely worth a listen BTW) and January 2012 they will release a remix of Goteki’s new single, Silent War.
They’ve also just released a remix album of their first EP, MARAE, on Tubndra Dubs which features remixes from Trouble & Bass’ Star Eyes, Ritualz, kkoee and more. Off the back of that release they are very kindly giving away a brand new track, To the End, which you can download below.
And here is the MARAE remix album, which you can download for the price of being added to the Tundra mailing list…
