Yellowstone is the third Exoxen release on Webbed Hand, and represents a further evolution of the sound of this enigmatic group. Mingling high production standards with gritty lo-fi recording techniques, the result is a body of work that defies easy categorization. It cuts across many genres, containing elements of 60s/70s psychedelic, garage rock, Beefheart, metal, industrial, electronica, all in a mind-bending stew.
EXOXEN has spent over 15 years as a home-studio tape project among a group of friends. The sound of this group may best be described as a kind of twisted lo-fi psychedelic, mingling elements of rock, electronica, and noise, in a manner reminiscent of Chrome or Helios Creed.
In 2004 Webbed Hand released the first collection of works from the EXOXEN archives to reach a wider audience, the intense “1.0.” This new collection, “Shiny Moon Water,” draws together more works from the same period, this time with less emphasis on noise and more emphasis on the psychedelic.
WH Records has given spot #23 to this extraordinary psychedelic power noise ensemble. Intense auditory massage reaches into your brain to tweak your evolution.
