Released: Feb 2012
Tetras' first album traces a rippling, razor-thin edge between improv and trance-inducing drone jams. The trio of Jason Kahn (drums), Christian Weber (contrabass) and Jeroen Visser (organ and electronics) maps out a space somewhere between Kraut rockers like Can and the post-punk improv of New Zealand's Thela. Digging in for 17 or 20 minutes a pop lets them go long, drawing out a seismic rumble like the horizon being pulled taut before knuckling down into hypnotic, driven grooves. Fans of Sunn 0))), Polwechsel and Fennesz will find themselves sucked happily into the undertow.
