Thursday I popped over to House of Targ to catch of notably hefty (musically, that is) duos. Moncton's Zaum and sort-of-local Flying Fortress are both doing the base and drums thing, and both are taking it in completely different directions.
First up, Flying Fortress, who I also caught at the House of Targ in mid-December.
Brandon shows the Vertigo love (the band is signed to the store's record label., Uncle D).
Steelrider sings and hits!
The whole lot!
Come to thing of it both bands are kind of hefty, period.
On to Zaum, who provide quite a counterpoint to Flying Fortress's thrashy style with longer, meditative tunes, visually abetted by a lot of smoke and many, many candles. I got their record Oracles earlier this year, and it's killer.
Drummer Lewis gets in the zone.
Kyle rocks the low end.
They're in there somewhere ...
Both really fine sets.
