With a name like kptmichigan and collage cover art featuring cartoons and porno, I was expecting some Fag Tapes/American Tapes basement scuz variety. But kptmichigan really went into more of the pretty drone variety, surprising me with some well-executed and varied movements of tone.
Black stepdad also threw me for a loop with their slow-burn organ sounds (to begin with anyway) that reminded me of some ritual weirdness. I’m reminded of the great Devillock with the long drone organ and the weird vocal sounds and the skittering other-ness that generates from somewhere.
Both of these bands sound pretty damn impressive on this release and you should keep an eye out for more.
