Grip The Moon

Kraus has been a going & growing concern for years now. Each new release from the hands and mind of Auckland’s Pat Kraus is an extension of the one before it, with blasted riffs piled high, explosive drumming and modified electronics teetering on collapse. Grip the Moon is his latest statement, and it’s got all of the Kraus trademarks aplenty with an added dose of Turkish scales bumping up against his Bolan-ish bombast, and primitive futurist take on psychedelic music. Layers and layers of sounds await. Limited.
