CTM 2024: Anna von Hausswolff, Moundabout

The concert takes place within CTM Festival´s 25th anniversary edition, which runs from January 26 to February 4, 2024. Under the theme Sustain, CTM 2024 presents the current state of adventurous music, from pulsating dance floor to shared moments of artistic intimacy.

With multiple albums released on labels including Touch and Southern Lord; tours and concerts with Sunn O))), Swans and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds among others; and her own experimental label ​Pomperipossa Records​, Anna von Hausswolff will bring her music to life together with a 6-piece band, cascading hypnotic and mantra-like moods that oscillate to thunderous drama, dissonance and cacophony. Her longform compositions show a mastery of captivating dynamics, droning gothic symphonies, and an immense power that leads listeners into an epic, dark ecstasy. Von Hausswolff will premiere material from her new, unreleased album at CTM.

A combination of song, playful improvisations, and storytelling, Moundabout is a new »pholk« project based in Ireland by Paddy Shine, of psychedelic powerhouse GNOD, and Phil Masterson, of cult groups Los Langeros, Damp Howl, and Bisect. A couple of years ago the duo set out to explore a new form of psychedelic Irish folk music where the listener is invited to see folk as a continuum and eternal vibrancy that predates classical antiquity and Irish civilisation itself. Getting lost in liminal zones, at thresholds, where boundaries merge, with their second album An Cnoc Mór (Sacred Bones, 2023), the pair seek to push even further out than ever before where folk meets free psych music.
