Phurpa: Ritual Sound Ceremonies

A new discovery is Phurpa, the Russian musical performance group who practice the sound performance art of Bon, a Tibetan Buddhist ceremony of droning and tantric. The sounds from their gut is super mediative and moody. I'm going to fall to the shaman after this long draggin' work week. Sit back, close your eyes and take in this strange orgasmic soul awakener.

The Return of BlackHand




















A few years back I wrote about one of my favorite local bands BlackHand. After a long hiatus, these dudes are back in full force with new jams and two new members. I recently had the opportunity to update their logo for a more spacey vibe, which was super fun and challenging. I pulled out the old pencils to do hand drawn lettering resembling space mountains and craters from parts unknown. Look for another post soon on the process of doing this new logo, from sketches to renditions.

You will be hearing more of BlackHand in 2015 with the release of their second album that is a darker take on 70s sci-fantasy mixing tastes of doom and thrash. These guys just played at the Oddity Bar in Wilmington, DE. Check out a video below featuring the songs "The Watcher"and "Secret War" with are a darker perspective on these silver age comic references.
