Thot: The Fall of the Water Towers

Belgian noise experimentalists Thot went on a scavenger hunt for the off-beat sounds on their new EP The Fall of the Water Towers, six slow tracks with found sounds, eerie keyboards, gentle piano and a dry acoustic guitar. It's a far cry from their previous louder output, but they have kept the ambient post-rock atmosphere. Most tracks are instrumentals, although special guest Colin H van Eeckhout delivers a great spoken word vocal on Grueenn.

Pastoral, but with danger lurking in the shadows, this EP will be welcomed by fans of Can, Throbbing Gristle and Sonic Youth.

Grégoire Fray: guitar, vocal, keyboards
Gil de Chevigné: drums, electronics
Hugues Peeters: piano, keyboards
Julien Forthomme: bass
Arielle Moens: live visuals

The Fall of the Water Towers is a self-released album. Buy it (digital is pay-what-you-want) from their website.
