Artist: Doom Tickler
Recorded at The Music Gallery (A Night with Pleasence), February 11, 2017.Doom Tickler - unknown
The Music Gallery does an excellent job of using its "institutional privilege" to boost the signal of a wide range of local culture-makers. This night saw the stage given over to local label Pleasence, whose output isn't united so much by genre as its striving-oddball aesthetic. Leslie Predy, whose Spirit Fingers EP is out at the end of the month, lead things off with her monster growl throatscapes, improvising loops of animalistic grunts to driving beats while Randy Gagne's giant papier-mâché heads spun lazily from the roof beams.
[Doom Tickler will be performing at the season's final Long Winter, returning to the Gladstone Hotel on March 24th.]
