NETHERLANDS is a sludge/ doom/ pop band from Brooklyn NYC formed in 2008 by Timo Ellis, who has recorded and played with Yoko Ono, Cibo Matto, John Zorn, The Melvins, Ween, and Joan As Police Woman, among many others. Netherlands’ real magic lies in the contrasts it sets up: falsetto vocals, odd time signatures, and haunting hooks transform the raw power into weirdly delicious and dynamic songs. The overall effect is not unlike that of Swans and Dio playing simultaneously, atop an actual mountain of MDMA. Mastodon, Dinosaur Jr., and Netherlands have teamed up for a pretty killer September 2018 tour that will straddle the US and Canadian border.
