Philadelphia’s genre-morphing duo Sadgiqacea today celebrates the official North American release of debut album "False Prism." You can now stream the full album via Invisible Oranges or in the player below. The following press release was also issued about the album:
"Recorded by Chris Grigg (Woe), the sprawling forty-minute album projects the organic, monstrous tones and unified, distinctive style which has helped the two-piece act become one of Philly’s hottest live acts over the past two years. The record features virtually no overdubs or studio trickery, the band wishing to preserve the authentic recording quality of their live performances.
"Formed in 2010, Sadgiqacea (pronounced sad-juh-kay-sha) forges a diverse sonic palette that has been likened at times to Neurosis, Intronaut, Hull, The Atlas Moth, Weakling, and Kylesa. Musically and artistically, the band draws from a melting pot of influences that together presents a lush yet tension-filled sound. The band calls it, 'music for our trodden minds and sodden souls.' In a continuing effort to bring their craft to public forums, the band is finalizing the details for a bulky tour set to take place through most of July and well into August, joined by local cohorts Hivelords. The full tour routing will be announced in the coming days." More...
