Tuesday Tip-Off: Ringhold

It’s the end of the world and Ringhold feel dark and vibey as hell. On “Latest News” the Estonian duo lay down a bewitching minimalist groove via Kalle Tikas reverbed out electric guitar and eleOnora’s vocals – which give us everything from Nico to Beefheart, often within a single passage. If it all feels a bit fatalistic, well that’s because it is, with lyrics focusing on ecological extinction and an experimental vocal passage in the middle that sounds first like animals dying and then humans dying (it works, trust us). If the end is nigh, and lately signs point to yes, there’s nothing that says we can’t have a great soundtrack as we ride into oblivion.
