Vötaag - 2009 - The Golden Pileus

Vötaag is the newest addition to the Avant Brown Collective (Residual Cod, Saturated Goat Trumpet, Tim Allen, Lactation, etc). I guess I'd consider it my "solo" project, but there are a couple songs that feature contributions from other Collective members. It is kind of a continuation of past projects (Birdsloth, Tujjuuuuujujjuufet) mixed with the freeform, improvised nature of the Avant Brown Collective's recordings. It's a combination of sound collages, rhythmic freak outs, brain-boiling psychedelia, Brötzmann-esque brass and woodwind squeals and honks, noisy mindfucks, and other forms of Brown. If you enjoyed my fake Beherit leak, or the Residual Cod and Saturated Goat Trumpet recordings, you'll probably like this. If you're not familiar with any of those, then imagine a mixture of Borbetomagus, Zappa's Lumpy Gravy, Albert Ayler, Sunburned Hand of the Man, and the Nihilist Spasm Band.

Seven songs, 44-minute running time.
1. Oryx Labiosus (Goat with Larger Lips)
2. Mustachioed
3. The Golden Pileus
4. Alexander Baxter
5. Avocado (or Lack Thereof)
6. Toad Merchant
7. Those Brown Things are Moving

Artwork by Alex Shenkan

Vocals, mandolin and keyboard on "Mustachioed" by Karissa Lawrence, Mark Dingman, and Steve Axberg.
