Jodis are simply salvation, the simplicity of the flow, one moment after moment they brings u in a contemplative/innerscape, in a world made to take time to breath...
Favorite track: Follow the Dogs.
Jodis, an entirely new outfit involving James Plotkin (Khanate, Khlyst, Phantomsmasher, O.L.D.) Aaron Turner (ISIS, Old Man Gloom, Lotus Eaters, House of Low Culture, GREYMACHINE) and Tim Wyskida (Khanate, Blind Idiot God), is a modern exploration of restrained sonic minimalism and tonal/textural density. Jodis' Secret House, as a whole, recalls a void, a shoreless pit, a slow nihilistic decent into absolute blankness...
The vocals emote a deviating distress, one that the listener will walk away from also knowing. The guitars loom with an almost inconceivable image of stillness. The percussion possesses an irregular circularity facilitating the general disorientation encapsulating the mood of the record. In summation, a thorough listen would kick the living shit out of your aptitude for co-habituation with other humans.
Listening to SUMAC is like being in a dark room with a lamp that’s holding back feelings of grief, loss, frustration, rage, and just pure darkness. Then the lamp goes out and those things come alive. The cycle repeats with you knowing the lamp will go out again. This album will grow on you fast. It’s HEAVY but allows you to breath, feel, and think. Just an absolutely amazing band. Daniel Thomas
This is simply Mamiffer's most immersive and most coherent album : the atmospheres are perfects from beginning to end, the musical textures unbelievably organic, the equilibrium softly preserved between post-metal guitars, experimental noise and the sheer beauty of Coloccia's ethereal voice and piano. An experience I deeply recommend ! jcthnawn
