the transcendents are an experimental/lofi band from christchurch, new zealand. their self-titled album features glitchy, distorted, spacey soundscapes anchored with rhythms and melodies and overlayed with abstract spoken word poetry.
it's an extremely unique approach that combines elements of trance, techno, and hip hop with punk rock textures and psychedelic-outsider-gutter poet imagery. in order to enhance this effect, they have made videos for 6 of the 10 tracks on the album, which you can check out either on their bandcamp page or youtube channel. i'll include my favorite here, the creepy cut for 'visitation rights' (aliens freak me out).
the self titled album is available digitally or on lathe cut polycarbonate, which is pretty cool and something i'd never heard of.
get it here.
