Boomkat Product Review:
The Yellow Swans reissue drive continues apace with their throttled 2003 throwndown as Detestifi Yellow Swans given the remastered treatment for 2020 and posterity
Landing in the wake of vital reissues for ‘Going Places’ and its ‘Being There’ bonus disc, this one drags up their 2003 Collective Jyrk session for the hairiest heads, dispensing severely warped alloys of psych-noise, wild American hardcore, and pummelling rhythms with a pineal squeezing force.
The first side is some of the most zonked and turbulent cosmic chaos this side of Pat Murano’s Decimus jags, letting it all hang out in glorious gangly and frazzled form hingeing around nagging machine pulses for the first half, before slipping into more zonked, eyes-in-back-of-head psych modes. Flipside they attack with a filthy squelch, doing a sort of mad scuzz with a genuinely mind-unravelling quality and infectiously grotty motion, then splintering off perpendicular into shattering hi-end squeal and caustic licks that take the skin off it, we tell ya..
