Rangda: “Majnun” (SoundCloud)

Out today on Drag City, Formerly Extinct, the sophomore release from Rangda. Guitarists Richard Bishop (Sun City Girls), Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance), and drummer Chris Corsano (Sunburned Hand of the Man) have enough studio credits between them to earn the designations “formative players” in both the psych rock and no wave arenas.

Below, we’ve included a SoundCloud embed of album track “Majnun.” Its outer sections set up a fulsome, Middle Eastern inflected groove, while the central section includes plenty of crunching guitar riffs leavened with walls of noise.
