Product Description

'Gnod Drop Out with White Hills II' is a collaboration between two of the most colossal cosmic manglers on the planet, that of astral rejecters Gnod (Manchester) and spacerock juggernauts White Hills (New York). Gnod have been stirring their galactic soup of flashbacked rituals with unpredictable incendiary results, both on record and as a live experience for many years now and this is considered on of their classic albums. Having them join forces with White Hills for this record is akin to having the aural equivalent of those 3D magic eye stereograms, looked at in one way, they just don't make sense, but seen through the repetition of the music, the result is out of this world. White Hills continue their fiery brand of heavy spacerock has seen them burning up live appearances over the years as they continue on the path towards uncharted territories. To celebrate this thundering union, Rocket Recordings have embarked upon this re-release of pulsating mantras, awash with all the hypno propulsion both bands motor skills can pilot. It's brimming with surrendered like patterns, like both bands driving through Dingerland with LA Woman blasting from the rushing air. We have 16 minute elegant Bel Air suites, it's ebbed & flowing mesmerizing grooves burst with swooping grandiose synths, like gentle waves, hanging in time. Interjections of oscillating guitars and keyboards, designed to propel the captured listener into a trance-inducing sunroof of kosmische blur, rupturing out through the expansive blue. The tracks are embedded with an exciting haze of echoing psychedelia, electronic & experimental Krautrock trippo-nova. After which, all four corners of your mind s eye have been consecrated 'In Gnod We Trust's' world of undulating symphonies.

Format: Audio CD
I once saw Gnod play in a strange disused building in Manchester about four years ago as a friend's, friend's band and it was quite an experience even then. It was nothing short of ketamine fueled madness involving several drum kits, guitars, effects and a lunatic reading a crazed mantra from a piece of screwed up paper. From this early onslaught on the senses, Gnod have no doubt been through lineup changes, countless gigs, touring, jams, recording sessions and the like and my word does it show.

I'm not sure of the who-did-what on this album being both Gnod and White Hills collaborating, but I like to think of it as a huge hazy jam session with a dozen musicians playing off each other & zoning out. Because that's as sure as hell what it sounds like. This is very much a psychedelic rock record; glorious repetition, driving basslines, lots of textures, hazy vocals, and marching drums. The album revolves around some of the most solid and zoned out bass playing I've ever heard.

Drop Out consists of 4 epic jams (5 if you have the bonus track that comes with the reissue) interspersed with a few shorter tracks. The first proper track is 'Run-A-Round' and it's catchier than syphilis. Whether it's the bassist from White Hills or Gnod (most likely both together!) they probably play these lines in their sleep they're so damn... insistent! I can't get them out of my head! Drumming and and bass frequencies just force you to move; I challenge you to stay still for the duration of this tune. No chance matey.

'Spaced Man' sees more White Hills influence with a relative orthodox two note riff and even a chord change or two! But that massive dirge-like riff is irresistible and forms a solid base for the swirling psychedelic effects blanketed over the top.
