Recently we got the chance to speak with Lindsay from the band Carthasy. Carthasy hails from Perth, Australia, and just released their new EP, Apertures on Bandcamp. A perfect description of the band is on their site:

Some bands try very hard to please you. Carthasy are not one of those bands. Carthasy’s experimental hard rock doesn’tsubscribe to any formula: schizophrenic two-minute assaults hold an uncomfortable truce with atmospheric seven-minute slow-burners. You might have to make an effort, but you know the rewards will be worth it.

Songs featured in this episode (BY-NC-SA):

  • Crawl
  • Apertures
  • Inhale
We’d like to thank Lindsay for taking the time to speak with us, and a big thanks to the band for making their music Creative Commons licensed. This is a great EP, and I’d highly recommend putting on some decent headphones and getting lost in this music. Really great stuff.

    • Awesome! I did check out Oceansize. What album would you recommend to really get a start for them?

      • Their last, Self Preserved While the Bodies Float Up, is probably their most accomplished. It’s got this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSjF028Mc_8 . Frames is a lot more experimental, and it contains this filthy bastard: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQnDH9SQ6Sc . Everyone Into Position is my favourite, it’s got http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYAF_MgV0JA which is just about the best prog song out in my opinion. The rest of the album is a bit more straightforward, it’s even got singles! For my money,though, their second EP, Music For Nurses, is their best work.

        • Thanks! Looks like I have some listening to do. :)
