What would happen if you took the doom stylings of Black Sabbath and Kyuss, the proggy weirdness of Captain Beefheart, and the jazzy insanity of Mahavishnu Orchestra? There's only one answer, and it's the Los Angeles-based trio Ether Feather. The band's fantastic lineup is vocalist and drummer Dylan Ryan (live drummer for Cursive, Red Krayola, Man Man, Tim Kasher), guitarist Tim Young (guitarist on the Late Late Show, Todd Rundgren, Mike Patton, Fiona Apple) and bassist Sylvia Black (Lydia Lunch). So y'know, people who know damn well what they want sonically and how to achieve that vision.
We're more than stoked to premiere the band's debut album Devil – Shadowless – Hand, out September 6. Here's what Ryan had to say about the release.
"Ether Feather is definitely a band where we can try weirder stuff and stretch out creatively in ways that may not be appropriate in other musical situations. We can mix and blend aesthetics and make hard turns. Tim was in the Pacific Northwest during the first wave of grunge and brings something very different from me to the table, having come up in the late 90's Chicago No Wave/Free Jazz/Metal scene."
