Listen: Death Shanties tracks

July 2014

Listen to music from a new project by Alex Neilson, Sybren Renema and Lucy Stein, mixing references to medieval music, sea shanties and field hollers with the ecstatic cry of 1960s fire music.

Death Shanties is a group featuring Alex Neilson on drums, Sybren Renema on alto and baritone sax and painting/projection work by the artist Lucy Stein. They're taking their self described "mixed media balls-to-the-wall free jazz" on the road in August.

Death Shanties' Crabs album is out in the first week of August on Bomb Shop and is reviewed by Daniel Spicer in The Wire 366.
