Rakta – RaktaPosted: February 15, 2014
Found on Marek Sawicki’s uber-solid blog Tableau!, Rakta is an all-girl psychedelic post-punk hellish concoction straight outta Sao Paulo, Brazil which the girls describe as “hippie punk”. Nature meets distortion. Organs meet post-apoc meaty bass and a cloudy guitar. Psychedelic experience meets alienation. And the vocalist sounds like a garage/basement (whatever sounds more lo-fi, just choose your preference) version of Siouxsie, which might just be the strongest recommendation. Unless you don’t like shoegazey take on urban decay and the end of civilization with reverbed female vocals. But then it’s just your loss.
