Thor Harris is bringing the doom to your summer soundscape.
Today we announce to you the latest from -- polymath musician, terrifying instrument wielding composer and percussionist -- Thor Harris' Doom Dub II.
So some might say, what is Doom Dub?
It begins with a doomed beat. Atonal harmonies are expertly layered in, forming an alternate offering to the warm, sunny sound that history knows as Dub. Calling on his legion of wildly talented friends and artists – Zola Jesus, Lawrence English, Dorian Wood, Marissa Nadler just to name a few - the album charms you with haunting howls, while a steady, lingering drum beat creates the illusion of safety. Don’t get too comfortable. It’s a strange world - eerie but enticing.
Almost every music geek and musician loves late 70s Dub. This made it easy for me to involve many of my friends in the making of this record. This zine is full of their faces. If you tell anyone you need help making a Dub record, they will beg to be part of it.
This is my humble homage to the original practitioners of the form. Dub.
Your servant, Thor Harris
Doom Dub II is available in BLACK CASSETTE & ZINE.
