Wax Mekanix/Troll Teeth – Blunt

Fecha:

What happens when two Electric Talon artists sit in the same room together? Blunt happens.

Wax Mekanix and Troll Teeth, coming off of their respective 2020 releases entitled Mobocracy and Goes Nowhere, Does Nothing, have teamed up to release one of the most diverse splits of 2021. What happens when you mix acoustic-rooted psychedelia and hard-nosed stoner rock? Well, you’ll soon find out. Upon Wax Mekanix reaching out to fellow label brethren Troll Teeth, both artists set out on a mission to challenge themselves artistically; taking the lull in live music to hone their craft and deliver their fans with something new yet familiar. “»We at Troll Teeth used this EP to experiment a little with songwriting and performing” says Troll Teeth frontman Moe Eccles “We tried to get out of our comfort zone a little more than we normally do.” Wax Mekanix follows this up by stating “If you’re expecting Mobocracy version 2.0, or me to pander for streams, followers, eyeballs, or likes by calculating some kind of mind-numbing, mouth-breathing sameness, I ain’t your guy.”

From the almost tribal backbeats of “Freak Boutique” and “Head”, to the hard nosed in your face fuzz of ”Barbs on the Wire”, Blunt will leave your ears feeling satisfied and itching for more from each of these artists. Blunt will be available October 22nd, 2021 on all major digital platforms courtesy of Electric Talon Records

Quotes on the release
Wax Mekanix

“If you’re expecting Mobocracy version 2.0, or me to pander for streams, followers, eyeballs, or likes by calculating some kind of mind-numbing, mouth-breathing sameness, I ain’t your guy. If you’re hankering for some groovy and glorious nourishment for your gnoggin and hips, drop these three funky nuggets into your ears. Then come see me and my courageous crew for more mind-expanding escapades. We aren’t even firing on all cylinders yet.”

Troll Teeth
«We at Troll Teeth used this EP to experiment a little with songwriting and performing. We tried to get out of our comfort zone a little more than we normally do. For example we have some slap bass on the one song, which is not something you see too many Doom or Sludge bands messing around with. This should be a fun EP to listen to because of the clashing styles between Troll Teeth & Wax Mekanix where we both come at songwriting and recording from two completely different angles but have songs with the same kind of attitude and energy.»
