One guitar, one drum-set, a lot of effects, electronics and - of course - improvisation.
MuttTricx appear with their first LP after performing intensely, still under the radar, on various occasions throughout the past two years. Those who have not paid attention will not have noticed the Viennese duo is now releasing their album "MuttTricx s/t" on Unrecords and Zach Records.
MuttTricx' music pulls you in: listeners get submerged in rich electric guitar and urgent drums; the electronics let one forget that human needs air to breathe. Disturbing voices that emerge from sound surfaces give you a feeling that is hard to escape. Mighty, you could say, though MuttTricx’ music may be too minimalist for this adjective. Powerful is a better description, especially if one pictures their live concerts. On stage, MuttTricx create their own sphere, their music drives into the ground, while the riffs and patterns fill the space completely, encircling the audience.
Guitar-effect pedals and synthesizers create a charged atmosphere, like undistilled particles vibrating in a field of energy that, compressed by guitar and drums, fall in Post-Rock-like fragments. The music arises from the dynamic interplay between guitar and electronics, emerging from the moment of live improvisation.
