SEA BASTARD / KEEPER SPLIT Vinyl Record - UK Release

SEA BASTARD / KEEPER SPLIT Vinyl Record - UK Release
Judge the book by it's cover here, for Sea Bastard's long form take on sludge/doom/stoner is a strange little release. Sonically, it's not all that different from a lot of what you've heard, but the structures are real strange maaaan. I'm not entirely sure what to think of the release as a whole, so get it up on youtube or what have you and join me as we unpack this curious little release. Probably the main thing here is that the riffs are really, really long. By that I'm not making a call on tempo- this has some pretty slow moments, but it's no Sunn, or even a Sleep - but just that riffs are often 16+ bar pieces, simply written but it's always a strangely long time before we're back at the start of the riff again. There's fills everywhere which makes it even more confusing; it gives the whole album a rather weird feel. Not super catchy, for one thing, as there aren't a huge amount of hooks. But also weirdly hypnotic and repetitive in a strange way that reminds me of Summoning, oddly enough, you're sure you've heard the main riff in "Psychic Funeral" a few hundred times before, but you've maybe only heard it the exact same way three or four times. Songs are already long enough and with the often lack of familiarity (I've listened to this album maybe 10 times at this point, over the course of a month or so) it feels like they stretch out for hundreds of years. This isn't really a bad thing; it is what it is. Long and hypnotic in a strange way- it'd be interesting to see what I think of this in a few years when I've maybe given it a bit more time to mature.
