The first single to be released from Jettison, the impending new LP from Austin-based BELLRINGER, is now playing through an exclusive premiere at Revolver Magazine.
BELLRINGER was formed by ex-Melvins/Clown Alley guitarist Mark Deutrom, acting as the live human conduit for the madman’s tunes, and the new “Cowboy Fight” single is an exemplary specimen of what the outfit delivers: mega-slick, slightly questionable, somewhat ominous, totally psychedelic, and inarguably awesome blues-based chill-out jams for the inner bullfighter in us all. Or, as Deutrom refers to it, “Proto-existentialist sludge-funk soundtrack set to the imagery of pointless violence in the Old West against an utterly indifferent geological timescale (with apologies and respect to Tiny Bradshaw).”
Swing by Revolver’s online dimension to crank BELLRINGER’s “Cowboy Fight” through THIS PORTAL.
Jettison will see release on August 26th, digitally as well as on limited edition LP through Rock Is Hell, the label also responsible for releasing several of Deutrom’s prior solo outings, as well as titles from his wife Jennifer, Burmese, Bulbul, Shit & Shine, and others. Preorders for the wax will be released in the coming days, alongside an official video from the album.
A brief trailer for the Jettison LP can be scoped HERE.
BELLRINGER is essentially the live conduit for the music of Deutrom – formerly of the Melvins (Prick/Stoner Witch/Stag/Honky-era), Clown Alley, a touring member of Sunn O))) and others. The outfit’s new Jettison LP was fully written and produced by Deutrom, the album recorded in Austin earlier this year. The six expansive tracks on this new auditory trip traverse an immense volume of genre territory with nearly forty minutes of action, fusing elements of psychedelic and exploratory rock with bluesy and jazzy jam elements, all coalescing in the signature Mark D style. Outer-cosmos radioactive dust cloud soundscapes go head-to-head with lush, organic, earthling grooves, while a quirky edge stimulates hallucinations of animated characters colonizing psychedelic parallel existences. BELLRINGER currently also embodies the contributions of musicians James Flores, Aaron Lack, Monique Ortiz, and Brian Ramirez.
