R5 Productions Presents Holly Hunt

Drummer Beatriz Monteavaro and Guitarist Gavin Perry capture the meditative power of repetition; the ecstatic joy of tempered variation; infinitely undulating riffage; psychedelic drone paired with rock n’ roll rhythm in full splendor.

Though stripped down to the most bare essentials, Holly Hunt produces a sound and style far beyond rudimentary tags like “heavy,” “hard,” or “brutal.”

Holly Hunt opened for Mono at Johnny Brenda’s.

RYAN SCOTT KERR

RSK under his musical moniker, is a local drone-smith working with ground loops, software synths, and Pure Data. “A streamlined source of shadowy tones and lingering sentiments. RSK was formerly known as “Slow Tongued Beauty,” a reference to the late Anna Nicole Smith – the tragic icon. An emotionally rich sound that is at times harsh and others tenderly disarmed, Kerr offers a meditative moment akin to the impairment of release.”

thisQuietArmy

 

thisQuietArmy at Eris Temple Arts Philadelphia, PA

thisQuietArmy is the experimental guitar-based project of Eric Quach from DestroyAllDreamers from Montreal, Canada.

thisQuietArmy’s music is best described as improvised drone: He takes his sonic experimentations further by adding textural and structural elements of post-punk/shoegaze, krautrock/spacerock & black/doom metal to them.

Furthermore, he uses hypnotic visuals to his performances.

This set was filmed in Eris Temple Arts Philadelphia, PA, a mecca for indie music in the city.
