Enter the Cold World of Uniform’s Unmerciful ‘Ghosthouse’
Michael Berdan isn't just a scribe for CLRVYNT; he also puts that prose to good use in several different arenas. The latest — and the one attracting the most attention — is Uniform, a duo that also features Ben Greenberg, who you might know from his production work or time in bands like Pygmy Shrews, the Men, Hubble and many others. Together, the pair creates a sound that is rooted in punk and hardcore, but branches into metal, electronics, industrial, noise and a slew of other sounds, all to create their own version of an M1A1 Abrams — a bulldozing, take-no-prisoners, mechanized assault vehicle. After releases with Alter and Beggars Tomb, the Brooklyn duo is back with a new effort due October 28 on Sacred Bones.
The Ghosthouse 12" is the first effort for the duo, and today the band shares the title track. Featuring an inhuman pummel of guitar, noise and beats, "Ghosthouse" is a perfect encapsulation of what Uniform are all about. Stream the track below and catch them on the road.
