DrAlienSmith“The atmospheric production wizardry often makes these four tracks sound truly terrifying. The guitar sound is layered and nuanced, the percussion varied and interesting… really excellent”4ZZZ

Drinking deep from the poisoned well in which the streams of doom, shoegaze, sludge and post-rock co-mingle, DrAlienSmith drowns the listener in slow motion, treacle-thick riffs. Atop distorted, detuned bass guitar and cavernous drums, surges of noise and haunting synths weave through the mix like ghosts. Under Songs, DrAlienSmith’s debut EP,is a stirring exercise in monolithic instrumental songcraft, densely atmospheric yet wonderfully accessible.

Under Songs


May 2014

DrAlienSmith’s debut EP, is a stirring exercise in monolithic instrumental songcraft, densely atmospheric yet wonderfully accessible. Drinking deep from the poisoned well in which the streams of doom, shoegaze, sludge and post-rock co-mingle, Under Songs drowns the listener in slow motion, treacle-thick riffs. Atop distorted, detuned bass guitar and cavernous drums, surges of noise and haunting synths weave through the mix like ghosts.
