Swahili, Midday Veil, Spectrum Control

MICHAEL MANNHEIMER
9:30 pm, Friday June 20 | $5.
Bunk Bar
1028 SE Water Ave.
 

[HEAVY GROOVE] Seattle’s Midday Veil exist in that part of the experimental rock wormhole where krautrock meets bludgeoning psych. The band, led by singer Emily Pothast, takes all the weirdest parts of a stoned record store clerk’s vinyl collection—the motorik grooves of Can, odd Karlheinz Stockhausen scores…basically anything German—and adds a dose of heavy, almost headbanging rock to the mix. These are long songs meant for late-night listening, either on headphones or in a humid, sticky bar. Tonight, Midday Veil plays with its PDX buds Swahili, who hopefully have new material on the horizon, and Spectrum Control, the new project of Plankton Wat’s Dewey Mahood. Somewhere up in experimental rock heaven, God is jamming to Amon Düül II.
