PC Worship (Northern Spy)
art-punk / avant-sludge



Justin Frye – vocals, guitars, tape and piano
Michael Etten – guitars, sax

“Like Sun Ra – PC Worship transmit alien, helter-skelter sounds seemingly from another universe—a truly rare trait these days”
– Adam Downey, Northern Spy

“…reducing Social Rust to one easily-identifiable genre would be missing the point–despite aspects of psychedelia, Social Rust is a beast unto itself.”
– Zack Wilks, Impose Magazine

“…they’ve always seemed to be flitting hesitantly around the edges of rock & roll—unable to commit wholeheartedly to it, but brutally decisive in their use of crashing guitars, screaming feedback and other forms of musical shock and awe. Still, I’ve always found melody to be the band’s greatest secret weapon, and fittingly, they’ve given us a whole lot of it to chew on…”
– Emilie Friedlander, The Fader

“…it’s the musical equivalent of a dead, stoned stare that you won’t mind locking eyes with.”
– Miles Bowe, Stereogum

“…throughout its running time touches on dark post-punk, psychedelic rock, and outsider folk, while still finding some time to keep their noisier roots intact.”
– Andrew Sacher, Brooklyn Vegan

“art-punk/avant-sludge” – Jenn Pelly, Pitchfork

“avant-grunge” – The New Yorker

Chris Rainier (au/uk)
Chris Rainier is a musician and artist from Melbourne, Australia, now living in the U.K. Before I heard his music I saw the beautiful white and blue vinyl with the maps printed on the inlay and so I looked it up and found out, he’s playing a prepared Weissenborn lap steel guitar.

I didn’t expect syncopated country blues or hawaiian slide guitar, when I read that he’s using tape loops and other electronics and I wasn’t wrong.


Moonpop, psychedelisch, Meduse MagiQ

BLUE CRIME was born in an Amsterdam bunker. An experimental four-piece. A trip from the disarming to the wrenching. Did the wolf devour the moon?
