Esben And The Witch – “Butoh”

Chris DeVille | April 1, 2014 - 1:25 pm

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
