Toronto, ON, Canada
Toronto-based psych outfit, Hot Garbage, melts within their unique sonic foundry, shiny metallic melodies, unearthed within rugged rhythms from the regions of krautrock and post-punk, then carbonized within sus-alloyed arrangements, that eventually emit heavy streams of gaseous neo-psychedelia. Though highly volatile, these four rock isotopes present the atmosphere with optimal levels of radioactivity, akin to that found in the presence of contemporaries: WAND, L.A. Witch or Kikagaku Moyo. Over the years, their one-of-a-kind frequency composite was enclosed on EPs: COCO’S PARADISE (2019) and MAX BLONDA (2017); as well as on early singles: Honey/Baby (2017) and Galleria (2017); and more recent release Easy Believer (2020), created with Juno-nominated and Polaris prize-nominated producer Graham Walsh from Holy Fuck. The elements found on these earlier recordings were also brought, though barely contained, to international festivals such as Levitation (Austin, TX), SXSW (Austin, TX), Sled Island (Calgary, AB), New Colossus (New-York, NY) and Pop Montréal, for the pleasure of rock scholaries and casual enthusiasts alike. More recently, Hot Garbage returned to Toronto-based facilities, Palace Sound and Baskitball 4 Life, resuming work alongside Graham Walsh, with the objective of encapsulating their highly-flammable compound within a full-length vinyl contraption, all the while keeping digital records of this experiment, available to the public via 33 minutes of sonic journals. Fans of volcanic rock and reverb-heavy dust clouds will want to expose their senses to the contents of RIDE, their new full-length out October 29th, 2021 via Mothland (Believe/FAB).
