PODCAST #95 Garry Brents (Cara Neir, Gonemage, Homeskin)

I don't there is anyone as prolific as Garry Brents since covid started in 2020. The amount of output by this multi-instrumentalist/artist is, simply put, mindboggling.

Our story starts at Cara Neir's 'III/IV' album that I was asked to release on Tomb Tree. I had heard the band previously but never delved in properly, so after getting pretty hooked on that album I was sent 'Phase Out' and basically lost my shit. That album is one of the best things I've heard in a very long time. The mashing of nintendo-core with black metal, screamo, and hardcore into experimental spheres was something I was not expecting, nor to be done to the ridiculously amazing degree that the band pushed for, including character unlocks, checkpoint interludes, a side-scrolling music video...the works.

So on July 29th at 9am PST / 11am CST / 12pm EST we will release the follow up (and 2nd in a 3-part trilogy) 'Phantasmal' on 12"LP. Find out info about all of this stuff and more, including: upcoming Gonemage album with 44 guest appearances!!!, the best "trilogy" trilogy, Mortal Kombat, the Bremen sound and Battle Of Wolf 359, Semen Across Lips, Cara Neir's creation and song writing/meaning insight, lucid dreaming, Mare vibes, 'Phantasmal' variant reveal and Garry's reaction, an upcoming Cara Neir split and the final album in the 'Phase Out' trilogy, adapting fan nightmares into lyrics, side projects Gonemage, Homeskin, and Lev'myr, etc. Bands played in this podcast: Akephal, Alpinist, The Depreciation Guild, Hylda, Lingua Nada, and Stove. Listen to podcast #95 which is available to stream and/or download for free via this link.
