Big Black Delta – Roost

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Okay, so these guys are super interesting, as can be seen from their description of their sound “When aliens land with their UFOs on earth and make music, BBD happens.” They really are celestial, but not in a completely random, hectic way that some bands often strive for to be “interesting.” BBD is solo outfit of Jonathan Bates but I hear he tours with two female drummers which sounds pretty spectacular. Work for the first LP, appropriately named BBDLP1, was done on a laptop given to him by Alessandro Cortini from NIN and the sound is most like…newer, spacier, NIN. This song in particular is striking as it sounds so much like Angelo Badalamenti, but slowly moves into a large progression. The building up that this song creates is awe-inspiring and gave me goosebumps the first time I heard it. Check out his LP for other great songs like this.
