DUR & DOUX SHOP
Herr Geisha & the boobs – Sea/sons (2013)
Released November 14, 2013
The trio, formed in 2011, almost immediately recorded a fresh and energetic patchwork debut album, We are The Boobs!”, and in doing so set the first markers for their musical territory connecting no-wave and blues, punk and pop.
The following year, the band recorded a mini-concept album, Sea/Sons; a 32-minute contemplative piece articulated in 4 movements, each corresponding to a season. Moving away from the standard trio formula (the album will not be played live), Sea/Sons explores soundscapes composed of superimposed layers that color ostinatos. We are here in a work of chamber music in the service of pop songs.
In 2014, TheDeadMachineThatGoesPing is released, a return to the rock format with 10 mastered and effective songs.
Herr Geisha & The Boobs released their 4th opus in the fall of 2015. Book Of Mutations is a 47-minute track that manages to create a balance between claimed rock efficiency and sound texture writing. This is an organic process, like a ferment whose proliferating action kneads a simple musical matter, a burning lava whose continuous flow allows one to drown in it until oblivion. A unique breath crossing the multiplicity of manifested forms, the same energy leads us, through several phases of mutations, in several movements, to a recomposed silence.
