Archaic 3 - Seems Pointless EP
August 1st, 2018
A rollercoaster of tempo changes and musical styles, Archaic 3 self identifies as sludge punk. Their sound incorporates elements of ska, punk, and metal with added appearances from many genres. Originally a three piece from Houston, TX, Archaic 3 are now 4 and share their time (and residence) with Austin. Yesterday, they released an absolutely incredible EP, and we're going to play it in its entirety tomorrow, August 2nd, at 5pm PST.
Joey McLane (guitar/vox) kicks off the album with a bang in Under Control, a tune mellowed by the saxophone stylings of Mr. Michael Wingard. Gian Cosani (drums/vox) then leads us masterfully into the title track, Seems Pointless, written and sung by Ethan Scrogin (bass/vox). A brief trip-dip into Pandora's Box gives way to the driving, rhythmic track, Redemption. The final written portion of the album is How It Goes, a song as powerful as the sound that it emanates.
But that's not all folks. Michael Wingard, the sexy sax man that he is, happened to press record discreetly in the booth to capture a jam for the ages. The final track is one hundred percent improvisation, further solidifying the fact that Archaic 3 is the real deal.
Tune in at 5pm PST tomorrow, August 2nd, 2018, for an exclusive listen to Seems Pointless by Archaic 3 on Rudaroo Radio. Find out more about A3 at the links below!
