The DOES (as in female deer, pl.) play music that is dirty, dark, & hazy. Singer Carol Anne and guitar player Neddal were brought together by their shared love of sleaze, sloppy & feedback. Originally, the idea was to sound "something like a cross between the Rolling Stones & Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds." Things didn't work out as planned. Carol couldn't quite shake her goth background. (She refers to herself as a "recovering goth." Neddal says there's no such thing.) Neddal couldn't quite get the sludge out of his system. What started out as moody, minimal blues/punk ended up as a brooding, psychedelic, not-quite-sominimal mix of Pussy Galore, ZZ Top, Melvins & My Bloody Valentine. BREATHE STONE come w/an impressive pedigree. Formed by Timothy Renner, BS is an extension of well known acid/psych/wyrd-folks STONE BREATH w/a mandate is to take the dark, haunting, acoustic folk of Stone Breath in a more electric (literally), experimental direction. Timothy is joined by his Stone Breath band mate Sarada, Alicia of Funeral, & guitarist RA Campbell. Using electric banjo, slide banjo, glasstamboura, dumbek, & squeezebox, along w/the electric guitar, BS conjure images of crumbling farmhouses, empty glades, overgrown paths, & lonely silhouettes in the moonlight. VERY LIMITED CDR RELEASE.
