A nasty followup EP to the Perfect Texture LP released earlier this year finds GELD in a more irascible and unhinged state. Soft Power expands on the band’s vision of a freer form of D-Beat with noisier sounds, tighter dimensions, wilder visions and subtler experimentation with carefully placed nuances. Don’t be tricked into thinking this is some sort of hippy dippy jamband bullshit though, every second of this is cruelly calculated and executed with the utmost care. Damn.
Coming out on Iron Lung in the US and Static Shock in Europe & Brexit. Recorded by Billy Gardener and Julian Cue. Art by Sam McKenzie.
Static Shock are also going to re-issue the GELD 12″ ‘Perfect Texture”
