Sweet Rot's Strasbourg series continues (after releases by The Anals, A.H. Kraken, The Feeling of Love and Teledetente 666) with the debut 7" by SIDA. You could make the case that each of the four songs here has elements of the aforementioned bands but SIDA clearly have their own thing going on with the bordering on tribal drumming, the subdued synth, the strong female vocals, and the sometimes droning/sometimes no-wavy guitar all expertly recorded by (who else?) Seb Normal. The 7 minute a-side track "Apollo 13" is a lurching, hypnotic jammer that the word "epic" was invented for. The flip side has three shorter blasts, some rhythmic and glammy, some freaked out and noisy. 300 copies with some seriously great cover art on the usual deluxe Sweet Rot style sleeve.
Heard about this band on KEXP yesterday and blew my mind, they are an incredible 3 piece from Brazil, and with an amazing sound, i don't know how to define the style but who cares??? they're awesome!!!! Housespace Nonsense
