Wolf Eyes - Strange Days II 12"

After the incredibly bleak Undertow album this year, the Wolves return with this two-track vinyl that continues their descent into increasingly esoteric worlds. The first track is a combination of Throbbing Gristle-like electronic pulses and ritualistic swirling flutes. The second track is a duel between John Olson's sax and Jim Baljo's buzzsaw guitar that takes no prisoners. Perhaps the only thing missing from here is the lifeless vocals and unnerving lyrics that Nate Young has been offering us lately. 2017 12" on Lower Floor.
