Pharmakon, Moor Mother, support Shins-K
Pharmakon and Moor Mother each find their own way to unite audiences through confrontation. Shattering sounds and razor-sharp poetry addressing struggle and loss infuse charismatic activist Moor Mother’s “project housing bop” and “blk girlblues.” Pharmakon’s vocal-chord shredding screams and visceral noise overwhelm with an abrasive intensity equally piercing as it is enveloping. Both artists were highlights of CTM 2017 Festival this past winter and are supporting recent releases: Pharmakon’s droning and strikingly deadly album, Contact (Sacred Bones), and Moor Mother’s The Motionless Present EP commissioned by Vinyl Factory on the occasion of CTM’s 18th edition. The concert will be rounded out with the self-described "dubstractic junglist" Shins-K, who plays sets that roam freely across the borders of bass music, hip hop, techno and dub, defying genre with occasional forays into noise or traditional sounds from across Africa and the Middle East.
