Thresher Album Release Party - All Ages

Thresher is a collective of improvising musicians from Owen Sound ON. Join us at The Rumpus Room to celebrate the release of their forthcoming album Wheels W/In Wheels.

The album, named after a quote from Mike Watt(Minutemen, The Stooges, etc.) on his blog to describe the band’s “tripped-out swirls of rhythm”, sees the group expand on their collage-style albums recorded to unforgiving tape. Fusing elements of kosmische music, free jazz, and post-rock they offer a bad trip wrapped in a security blanket. An album that pushes you to the brink like a disastrous meditation, cacophonous saxophone, noise-rock-inspired guitar, and tape loops, ensure Thresher offers a unique take on improvised music.

Opening the evening is DAUNTS, a Belgian/Simcoe County duo. Armed with vintage tape gear they capture live instruments and manipulate them in real time, conjuring improvised ambient heaven and hellscapes. Unscripted commotion that sometimes tickles the belly of transcendence.
