"Though singer Josh McCaslin wrote much of Roselit Bone’s debut album while living in the isolated woods outside Coos Bay, the imagery on Blacken & Curl is the stuff of a dystopian Western: dust blankets the landscape, the ravens are the size of dogs, and death comes slow and hot. The music, played by a 10-piece band augmented by trumpets, flute and pedal steel, enhances the dry, desiccated feeling, blending the cinematic sweep of Ennio Morricone with the twang of classic country and a sense of creeping malice that would make Nick Cave giddy. Bring water. You’re going to feel parched." - Matt Singer, Willamette Week
In their current state of designed perpetual flux WIBG has found some serious footing. Since 2012 Justin Fowler, Dan Galucki have consistently churned out shimmering, spasmodic psych rock of an exceptional degree. Since joined by Nathan Moore and Cory Gray in 2016, the crew has found a sort of chaotic cohesion. Many tours across the United States and Europe with the likes of FUZZ, Built to Spill and countless other groups of questionable individuals have left WIBG wise, weathered and thankful for the opportunity to shred. On tip toes and with bloody hands WIBG creates something more than songs. Their singular style is an organic cacophony of scattered metallic sway and lascivious throbbing that will leave you writhing and shaking into the wee hours.
What started as drum lessons over ten years ago between longtime partners Shana Lindbeck & Papi Fimbres, they never thought their musical careers would culminate to this point of being a two piece dance/club cumbia infused/kraut band. Being in Orquestra Pacifico Tropical together since its inception, these two have definitely honed in their sound & musical prowess with their new band, Dreckig.
