Eat Skull, the Woolen Men, Still Caves, Little Pilgrims
3939 N Mississippi Ave.
[PSYCH NOISE] It seemed as if Portland noise-punk day-trippers Eat Skull had disappeared into the ether sometime after 2009's Wild and Inside. As it turns out, the group did indeed vanish into the ether, and that's where it recorded its new album. Although the band was previously known for disguising its songcraft in wailing squalls of distortion, III, released last week, finds Rob Enbom and company exploring more placid realms of lo-fi mind-fracking. Don't worry, though: It's still psychedelic enough that you'll walk away from the stereo feeling like you just spent a full day staring at a black-light poster.
