Phantom Rhythm, the debut full-length from Beijing-based “transnational blues” duo Gong Gong Gong, is out now! I am so proud of this record, and ecstatic to see it out in the world – we began recording the album at Seaside Lounge in October 2017 (the same sessions that yielded the Siren single), and finished mixing earlier this year at Studio Windows. In the meantime, they’ve toured with Parquet Courts, Flasher, and Bodega in the US, Europe, and China, and made fans worldwide. Just read the press:
“An alarmingly stripped-down form of hypnotic rock which spiritually evokes the blues as well as punk, but otherwise can’t be directly compared to any other genre or artist” – Allmusic
“An album of avant-rock, unpretentious high art” – Pop Bollocks
“Ambassadors of the worldwide underground through a thoughtful collection of haunting barebones punk” – Post Trash
8/10: “Fearsome psych rock by the slightest means” – Loud & Quiet
Working with the group and producing these recordings has been a highlight of my career. Stream the album in full, pickup a copy on LP or CD, and do not miss them live! Phantom Rhythm is out now on Wharf Cat Records.
