Romulo del Castillo and Joshua Kay are Phoenicia and they emerge from their long march into the aural wilderness of Miami with Good Man Bones EP, five new sonic tapestries heavy with rhythm and rich in visual detail.
track 1. Livelihoods
“Livelihoods” initiates the set on epic proportions, sound force bleeding outwards like liquid mercury sliding across a glossy black surface with a thin, effervescent green glow ontop.
track 2. Mushroom Cloud Over Miami
“Mushroom Cloud Over Miami” is slower, the now vapourized mercury penetrating, twisting and re-aligning our neural networks as we blissfully glide along the industrial night highway sensing the smooth air of something massive and electric impregnating the sky above.
track 3. Smotherbeat
We are brought to a forest of percussion tightly interlaced with bubbling acid melodies in “Smotherbeat (Iroc-Z Mix)” — an elastic and warm yet dark slab of subtly twisting electro funk.
track 4. Dogness
Phoenicia’s dark, radiant mastery of percussion warps further, driving us into “Dogness” where shuddering slices of time flash in and out of existence at rapid-fire speed, aligning us with the ever shifting hyperdimensional grid of space.
track 5. Two-Part invention for Bodhran & Computer
“Two-Part Invention For Bodhran & Computer” is superbly soft, incorporating sublime melodic tapestries which are wrapped into one another by mind shattering percussive excellence.
