Religious Knives – “Smokescreen” – [Sacred Bones Records]

Religious Knives originally began as a side project for Mike Bernstein (Guitar, Synth, Vox) and Maya Miller (Organ, Vox) from their participation in the experimental noise act Double Leopards. This release, Smokescreen (2011), is their second full length, and first from Brooklyn-based Sacred Bones Records…Todd Cavallo, once again, supplies the bass, with Ryan Nadieau (Guadalupe/For Those Who Can Not Wait) replacing Nate Nelson (Mouthus) on drums.

Contemporary of such acts as Moon Duo and Wooden Shjips, they exude a relaxed, yet deliberate, form of repetitious, entrancing, fuzzed-out, Krautrock-ish psychedelic drone rooted in the sound of such bands as The Velvet Underground, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Goblin, and Popol Vuh.
