Far-Out Fangtooth

Far-Out Fangtooth Free to Experiment at JB’s Feb. 17

As your curious earholes will soon have you discover, Far-Out Fangtooth is a collective worth the listen. Following the familiar sensibilities of classic shoegaze, a driving fuzz-based rhythm section is complemented by the ambience of atmospheric, reverb-heavy vocals and lightly peppered melodies. As we await their second full-length release due out this April, last year’s The Thorns EP was a step in a different direction - away from standard song structure while flirting with the creation of a bigger picture model. The thunderous sounds of drums frame a landscape in which the guitar and vocals are free to experiment with tweaks of tones and white noise that will leave listeners intrigued. Fangtooth will be co-headlining Johnny Brenda’s tonight with NYC’s K-Holes and support from Brooklyn’s Call Of The Wild and Philly’s own Hound. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Ed Newton 


New Track: "Funtime" (Iggy Pop Cover) - Far-Out Fangtooth

Here's a recording of gothic psych-punks Far-Out Fangtooth covering Iggy Pop's David Bowie-produced track "Funtime," which was taped for WNYU's "New Afternoon Show." You can catch the local four-piece performing live this Sunday when they co-headline with pals K-Holes at Johnny Brenda's.


Far-Out Fangtooth & Spacin’ Opening for Dan Melchior at KFN (Upstairs) Nov. 19

So I still don’t know why Kung Fu Necktie doesn’t post anything on their site or calendar about the Phonographic Arts shows happening on their second floor and why the Phono Arts dudes don’t make it easier for me to find deets about their show, but there is a good one happening tonight with Far-Out Fangtooth and Spacin’ opening for Dan Melchior. BTW: Have you checked out Fangtooth’s EP for HoZac Records The Thorns? The release is a good one that definitely deserves a revisit with its hypnotic tribal beats and explosive guitars. You should already know how I feel about Spacin’s Deep Thuds (if not, you can read my review HERE). If you missed out on grabbing the vinyl with the drippy-tongued “Sticky Fingers” logo, then you should grab the new pressing with a “freaky lips and eyeball” (heard that the Rolling Stones’ law team wasn’t down with the last cover - lame). Prolific English singer/songwriter/guitarist Dan Melchior also has new material from his album The Backward Path (released via Northern Spy) that he’ll be sharing with everyone, and like he posted on the FB events page, “Tell your friends! - pretend it’s something they’ll like!” Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., $10, 8pm, 21+ - Q.D. Tran


Far-Out Fangtooth Opening for Mount Eeerie at FUC Sept. 17

Super fuzzed-out garage-goth noise-makers Far-Out Fangtooth will be bringing their psychedelic doom and gloom to the basement of the First Unitarian Church tonight. The four-piece delivered an impressive LP last year via Siltbreeze Records, which earned them The Deli Philly’s October Album of the Month honors, and their 2012 EP The Thorns, which was recorded by Moon Women’s Justin Pittney and released by HoZac Records, is proving to be a sleeper favorite of mine with each listen. Get your fix this evening when Far-Out Fangtooth open for Phil Elverum’s Mount Eerie who will be in full band mode. First Unitarian Church, 2125 Chestnut St., 8pm, $12, All Ages - Alexis V.


Far-Out Fangtooth Opening for Black Dice at Underground Arts May 25

The guitar resonates in a day after the apocalypse alien invasion kind of way. The vocals hauntingly echo as you try to figure out just were you are and where you want to be. And somehow despite the prevalent uncertainty the heavy backbeat keeps forging forward unafraid of the road ahead. Far-Out Fangtooth is the kind of band that  plays in a cement warehouse and steadily increases the distortion just because its seems like the right thing to do. They know that threshold moves when you push hard enough, and they’re not afraid to push. Far-Out Fangtooth will be the undercard for New York electronic maestros Black Dice whose space age beats thrust into the outer realm welcoming the future with open arms. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
