... 3 way split lp WaterWays/Sons of Alpha Centauri/Hotel Wrecking City Traders !!!

After the amazing collaboration between Gary Arce (Yawning Man) and Hotel Wrecking City Traders materialized by an excellent 12 inch vynil last year, Bro Fidelity rds is about to release a 3 way split lp with WaterWays (usa), Sons of Alpha Centauri (uk) and Hotel Wrecking City Traders (aus)... 
Three different bands but a same taste for dark and beautiful soundscapes, from ambient Desert rock to fuzzy psychedelic Stoner.
I've been especially impressed by WaterWays which I never heard priorly but will follow with attention in the future, Abby Travis voice is stunning ! S.O.A.C. and H.W.C.T. confirm here their high potencial, there's just a slight regret that both of them have only one song each here, whereas WW have four... But the most important is perfectly achieved : this is a very special and essential release !!!

Southern California's Waterways' darkly beautiful rock music is the result of a long over due collaboration of old friends rich with shared musical history.

Gary Arce (Yawning Man, Sort of Quartet, Ten East, Dark Tooth Encounter)
Abby Travis (Abby Travis Band, Masters of Reality, Eagles of Death Metal, The Bangles...)
Mario Lalli (Yawning Man, Fatso Jetson, Desert Sessions)
Tony Tornay (Fatso Jetson, Deep Dark Robot)

Gary Arce & Mario Lalli have literally grown up playing and writing music together. ‘Yawning Man’
founded in 1987 by Arce, Lalli and Alfredo Henandez developed their signature sound with endless desert jam sessions amid the cactus and dirt bike trails. Tony Tornay and Mario Lalli have been playing for the last 16 years in ‘Fatso Jetson’. ‘
Abby Travis’ and Mario first met over 25 years ago when Mario and her brother David Travis organized the now legendary outdoor generator parties in Los Angeles and Palm Springs. Mario's early band ‘Across the River’ played Abby's 16th Birthday partyback when she was in ‘The Lovedolls’.
Abby looked to the bleak yet endearing characters hidden in the Southern California desert’s underbelly. From this comes her visionary haunted folk tales of the new west dusted with drug lab dreamscapes and suburban legends. She draws inspiration from the dark thunderous reverberation of Gary Arce and Mario Lalli's signature guitar work and cinematic soundscapes. The result is an album of intriguing shadows and bursts of light. While Yawning Man's music as well as the eclectic work of Abby Travis can be used for reference to the sound of this project, it only points you towards the indescribable sights and sounds of ‘Waterways’!

'Hotel Wrecking City Traders' are a duo of Australian brothers specializing in heavy noise explorations and progressive, gargantuan beats. Occupying their own space with their hypnotic, ever-evolving pieces of crushing dirge and rhythm. Their cosmic sonic movements often dusted with moments of sublime melody and ambience.

Their contribution to this gem like vinyl is the track 'Pulmo Victus' - a chilled but explorative passage designed to roam the minds of the intoxicated and centered around a single tracked guitar loop recorded entirely live and without overdubs.
Having played on the live circuit with all kinds of musical heavyweights the 'Hotel Wrecking City Traders' invite you to come and stay in their tripped out fuzz hotel and bliss out to this 9 minute masterpiece and return to earth a spiritually atoned person!
The sun-baked Aussie 'Hotel Wrecking City Traders' deliver yet another fine slab of new noise with an exclusive track only available on this 'rare as Pegasus' shit 12" bought to you especially by 'Bro Fidelity'.

 'Sons of Alpha Centauri' shall be presenting a true rarity from their vaults with a track recorded during the sessions from their debut album ‘Sons of Alpha Centauri’ released on ‘Sound Devastation Records’ in 2007.
This eight-minute masterpiece was allegedly meant to be the centrepiece of the debut but was too long to feature! Now having been re-mastered for vinyl at the ‘Ranscombe Studios’ where it was recorded it sounds as fresh now as the day it was recorded calling on influences and sounds as far reaching and wide ranging as ever from the genre defying instrumental rock pioneers!
‘27’ transcends styles, salivates anticipation ahead of the bands forthcoming second album currently in pre-production and is a stunning reminder of why ‘Sons of Alpha Centauri’ established themselves with the pioneers in instrumental music presented as always in a premier packaged deluxe presentation.
