Monthly Podcast #1 - Caught Ship
Happy new year and all that jazz. With the new year comes new initiatives and today is the first installment of a monthly series of exclusive podcasts for the Deformative blog. Ably equipped to deal with such a portentous task is Melbourne's newest and coolest party mutants, Caught Ship. Part of a current quite-exciting influx of Brisbanites to the 'Bourne, Caught Ship are possibly the most intense band intent on making you shake your skinny ass. Musically, beat-laden, dub odysseys channel Flying Lotus and J Dilla, as well as the bugged-out electronics of Excepter, while vocalist Ben sounds like Mark E. Smith fighting his way out of a heavy acid trip, and dances in similar manner. Melbourne is a better place for them.
You can catch the boys this Friday at Sunshine and Grease and pick up their cassette What Does Water Need from cool new label, Totem Tapes.
