White Beast are a brand new Richmond duo that make a slimy, guttural, psychedelic model of sludge-rock primarily based on nothing however bass and drums. (Their Bandcamp tag consists of the style names “post butt rock” and “anarcho butterrock”, each of which, in my view, are humorous.) Drummer Sam Roberts has performed in punk bands like Fried Egg and Personal Hell, and I I solely learn about White Beast as a result of he instructed me about them on Friday on the Gorilla Biscuits present. Singer/bassist Jeffrey Ratberg was once within the Baltimore band Beachmower, and he launched an ep with a different drummer A number of years in the past underneath the identify White Beast.

On Friday, White Beast launched “Fencewalker,” their first single as a duet. It’s a heavy, candy rumor that each one is nicely on the planet when issues clearly should not. Jeffrey Ratberg shot the music’s video with Carolyn Hubert, and he edited it as nicely. Within the clip, dolls in a burning home watch the world crumble on TV. Test it out beneath.

Self-release is “Fencewalker” available on bandcamp Now, and there is a White Beast album popping out later this yr.
