about

This shadowy Texas duo concocts an especially potent blend from a wide variety of influences on their debut release. With dub music and cult films on the brain in heavy doses, Big Sky loaded Creepy Crawl with lumbering, skeletal instrumental pieces that constantly teeter on the edge of bliss and gloom. Guitars ring out shimmering, chiming passages while the rhythm section holds down a steady molasses groove. Slowed vocal samples and keys occasionally seep into the mix, infusing the sound with a deliciously warped, experimental pop sensibility. Quite simply refusing to fit comfortably into any one genre or trend, Big Sky is blazing its own sun-baked trail and this is a wonderful start. Try to imagine the flavors of King Tubby, PIL, Slint, and DJ Screw mixed into a vat of cough syrup, fake blood, and jerk sauce and you’re on the right track.
