And now, for something completely different. This Is Ethmo is an exciting mix of musical styles: dance, rock, ambient and much more. I'll let the guys introduce themselves:
This is the debut EP by the mysterious St Albans 3 piece - This Is Ethmo. They formed in January 2013 after crash landing on this planet called Earth whilst on a cultural expedition from the dwarf planet UB313. They assumed the pronounceable names of Johnny Man, Absalom and X and are enjoying mixing up this planet's many musical genres whilst creating a new style of their own ETHMO. They have just 12 months left on this planet before the mothership returns to collect them. Will they change planet Earth for the better? WIll their music be the music of future generations? Will they unite our disparate planet with the rest of the Universe? Stay tuned and don't forgot the word is ETHMO. This Is EthmoI love the range of influences and the sense of fun on 'Feuertrunken'. The sound is refreshing but at the same time takes me back to some of the classics from the late 80's and early 90's era of groups like The KLF and Utah Saints. This sounds to me like the type of stuff that the late great John Peel would big up and the video takes me back to a time before the Hype Williams age of million dollar videos. I especially like the popping and locking puppet. The myriad of styles and sense of fun is expanded even further on their newly released EP of the same name. I strongly advise you to check it out: Dance-meets-death metal-meets-Middle Eastern-meets-mad-funky funkiness. Bravo!
