Episode 88: Gazar Strips; Boiled Dwarf


Gazar Strips
Recorded by SLAM Sound.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at Sonic Masala Festival, Brisbane. 21 June 2014.

Gazar Strips, a band that released a 12” EP called, Sparkling, back in April on Sonic Masala records. A label that has released a lot of great contemporary Australian alternative rock bands from a very wide net – sonically speaking
Gazar Strips sit somewhere between the vivacious detachment of The Cure and the dour rock of Echo and The Bunnymen, but they play in a way that sounds like they’ve taken a few cues from the recent Swans records. Gazar Strips take the opportunity to play with the dynamics and indulge in an unrelenting wall of noise, only briefly.

-Listen to ‘Sparkling’ on the Sonic Masala Bandcamp.
