Holy Fuck – Latin [2010]

Posted in electronic,indie electronic by deek on April 26, 2010

Holy Fuck is a band based in Toronto, Canada. The band has, at various times, included members of King Cobb Steelie, By Divine Right, Wintersleep, Enon, and Blue Rodeo. Their current line-up includes the original and core members Brian Borcherdt and Graham Walsh with Matt Schulz on drums and Matt McQuaid on bass. Holy Fuck uses live drums and bass along with a myriad of toy keyboards, guitar pedals, mixers and even a 35mm film synchronizer to mimic modern electronic music, consciously avoiding modern fail-safes like laptops and programmed backing tracks. They have brought this sound to festivals like Glastonbury, Roskilde, Coachella, Lollapalooza, Fuji Rock and All Tomorrow’s Parties. And they’ve toured and supported artists such as M.I.A., Wolf Parade, !!!, Mouse on Mars, Cornelius, Super Furry Animals and Phoenix. All the while using the same duct-taped keyboards, film editing gear and all without rehearsing. ‘Latin’, Holy Fuck’s new album, comes out on May 11, 2010 on the Young Turks/XL label. They will be touring Europe, the UK and the United States soon after in support of the album.
