Watter - This World CD/LP (2014)

ARTISTS | WATTER
MEMBERS: Zak Riles, Tyler Trotter, Britt Walford

"Watter is a new trio made up of close friends and collaborators whose collective pedigree reads like a desert island list of must-haves in experimental rock musicians. Multi-instrumentalists Zak Riles (Grails) and Tyler Trotter are anchored by legendary drummer Britt Walford (Slint, Evergreen) on six genre-defying pieces of monolithic mood music. For Riles and Trotter, it's a chance to dig deeper into the sandbox in which Grails have sculpted many mercurial masterpieces in recent years; for Walford, it's the opportunity to play a substantial role in a new active band for the first time in nearly twenty years."

"It probably goes without saying...but we'll say it anyways: We are beyond excited to announce that two of our all-time favorite experimental rock musicians ((Britt Walford of SLINT, and Zak Riles of GRAILS) have joined forces with multi-instrumentalist Tyler Trotter to form a new genre-defying group called WATTER. For Riles and Trotter, it's a chance to dig deeper into the sandbox in which Grails have sculpted many mercurial masterpieces in recent years; for Walford, it's the opportunity to play a substantial role in a new active band for the first time in nearly twenty years, since his days in the criminally-underrated EVERGREEN. "

"It's finally here! Nearly 20 years after departing the criminally obscure Louisville rock band Evergreen, Britt Walford (most famously known as the driving force behind Slint) is finally in a new band and making new music again. This is a glorious thing! As if that weren't enough, that band is Watter, a new Louisville, Kentucky trio that also features Zak Riles of Grails, and multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire, Tyler Trotter. They also roped in a handful of friends and collaborators to join in the long-form kraut-psych intensity, including but not limited to Rachel Grimes (Rachel's), Todd Cook (The For Carnation, Crain), and the legendary Tony Levin of King Crimson. It's a mind-blowing record, and lives up to its expectations in just about every way. You can pre-order it now on CD and/or LP. While supplies last, we are offering a limited-edition Dark Water Navy Blue colored vinyl version. It's gorgeous, and perfectly matches the murky artwork."

Is it just me or are there recycled Grails riff(s) in Rustic Fog? Not a bad thing, just an observation. I'll definitely be picking this record up.

Cheers
