As ever, an interesting band name grabs our attention. That it comes alongside a 12-minute noise-rock taken from the new LP only serves to heighten expectation for what lies within.
Hotel Wrecking City Traders are a duo from Melbourne where they’ve “been dislodging earwax, busting strings and sticks and blowing minds since 2007”. The new album, Passage To Agartha, is a collection of fuzzy psych riffs and thunderous drums which serves as an all-out assault on the cerebral cortex. And for that, we love it.
