Setting with Wind Cults

The Scoop

Eulogy Presents: Setting with Wind Cults Sunday, December 17th, 2023 Eulogy - 10 Buxton Ave. Asheville, NC 28801 Doors 7PM || Show 8PM All Ages Setting is Nathan Bowles (solo/trio, Pelt, Black Twig Pickers) on strings, keys, and percussion; Jaime Fennelly (Mind Over Mirrors, Peeesseye) on harmoniums, synthesizers, and piano zither; and Joe Westerlund (solo, Califone, Sylvan Esso, Jake Xerxes Fussell) on drums, percussion, and metallophones. Their debut album “Shone a Rainbow Light On” on Paradise of Bachelors traverses textural, phosphorescent topography with a certified organic folk-engine. Fueled by a vibratory hybrid of acoustic and electronic instrumentation, the four stately longform pieces sound like a UFO slowly sinking into a peat bog. Wind Cults is the Asheville trio of Brett Naucke (electronics), Thom Nguyen (drums), and Adam Lion (vibraphone). The trio utilizes an idiosyncratic improvisational language which prioritizes spontaneity, process, and the unknown. A sonic mishmash of cacophony, harmony, density and repetition, the group embodies musical extremes which branch in every direction.
