Amidah Records set to release third Holy Tongue EP

Holy Tongue comprises Al Wootton and Valentina Magaletti, a duo that plays a blend of shamanic, percussion-driven post-punk dub music. The result of an impromptu session in East London. As a duo, they are heavily influenced by dub reggae, invoking a mutual appreciation for experimental dub acts like On-U-Sound, and Muslimgauze, as well as post-punk acts like Liquid Liquid and 23 Skidoo. On their forthcoming third EP, the pair exercise their deep and dubwise heavyweight sound from the high-energy dance-punk of ‘Spirit Mask’ to the meditative dub of ‘Rivers Cannot Wash It Away’. You can sample a taste below. As Wotton’s heavyweight basslines are mixed with layers of FX, he creates a deep and expansive sonic landscape that is guided by the rhythmic percussion of Magaletti. Amidah Records will release III on June 10th. Pre-order the 12″ vinyl version with digital download here.
