Thought Forms Esben

We’ve already heard one Esben And The Witch song from their upcoming split with Thought Forms, the fantastically dark cyclical rager “No Dog.” Our second preview, “Butoh,” follows a similar pattern, but there are more flashes of glimmery Sonic Youth atmospherics between the percussive noise-rock onslaughts, and at nine minutes it’s even longer than the . Hear it below.

The Esben/Thought Forms split is out 4/7 on Invada Records. The bands will play a few UK shows together this month:

4/10 Cardiff, Wales @ Moon Club
4/11 Bristol, England @ Rise Records
4.13 Brighton, England @ The Hope

  1. Yes! I fucking love this band. Don’t know why they aren’t much more recognized for their greatness. Everything they’ve released is stellar, and their last album was better than what a lot of critics named best of the year.

    • ^^^ For the record, I meant what critics named on their best of lists, not that it was the best album of the year.

      And damn, both of the tracks released from this split so far a great. Very raw production.
