Lauded as one of today’s most unique musical-performance groups. With a driving drum corps battery, taiko drummers, an arsenal of electronics including synthesizers, theremin, vocoders, and other custom-made sonic devices, ITCHY-O completely engulfs an audience from every angle in an electric bog of music, ephemera, and spectacle.
With 26 musicians and well over 100 tracks on many of the songs, the self-described “savagely sophisticated” experimental orchestra has completely outdone themselves. Along with the seven tracks on the record there are seven 32 second short vignettes that all end in lock-grooves on either side of the vinyl. And as if this is not enough, they have also released, along side of the vinyl, a zine publication titled Idra & Scepter. Once you have figured out the puzzle inside this zine, you can log in to an interactive site that allows you to not only listen to the digital version of the lock-grooves but also layer, record, and download your own versions. – METTLE STUDIOSListen On Spotify Purchase On Apple Music Purchase On Bandcamp
“From the Overflowing” is the follow-up album to the full-length debut “Burn The Navigator” which was released by Alternative Tentacles in 2014. This new release is charged with the same sonic fury of their live shows delivered by a driving drum corps battery and taiko drummers alongside Spaghetti Western guitar licks, snake-charming bass lines, and a rich arsenal of dark electronics including synthesizers, theremin, and vocoders. Itchy-O completely engulfs and immerses its audience from every angle in a pounding electric bog of music and ephemera. While these itchy-O events are legendary, this well-produced record stands on its own and is sure to be a mind-bending auditory voyage of experimental splendor. – ALTERNATIVE TENTACLESListen On Spotify
