Moon Relay (NO) + John Porras (US)
Moon Relay is an Oslo-based noise-rock group consisting of Daniel Meyer Grønvold, Håvard Volden, Ola Høyer and Christian Næss.
The band draw on the fractured funk and machine-aesthetic of late Seventies/early Eighties post-punk and No Wave bands, plus the motorik-meets-electro rhythms of ‘Planet Rock’-style hip-hop. Expect buzz-saw guitars clashing with disco handclaps, set over hypnotic instrumental grooves, found sounds and studio doodles. On the celebrated Hubro label.
Jon Porras returns to WORM! Porras has carved out a sprawling, emotionally evocative sound world using a variety of sonic elements and associations. His solo work has appeared on seminal imprints as Root Strata, Important Records, and Thrill Jockey Records. Porras has also been associated with a number of celebrated collaborations, with musicians Evan Caminiti (as Barn Owl), Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Stephen O’Malley, and visual artists Paul Clipson and Wilhelm Sasnal.
