A teeth rattling collaboration from The Chasms and the mighty vert:x in the form of vs. Mark Whitby…I’m not sure who Mark Whitby is, but from the sounds these two behemoths pound out, I’ll take an educated guess that he lost. Big time. The Chasms have a wealth of other material to sample (Alchemical Postcards is as a rewarding place to jump in as any), but if you’re familiar with the chugging and insistent space rock of vert:x, here’s a shot to hear them in a harsher light, flexing their impressive muscles in a different way. Abrasive, tough and packing enough squall for a perfect storm, vs. Mark Whitby is also surprisingly accessible…for those willing to replace Whitby’s name after the ‘vs’ with their own.

"This show is 110% … one of the most consistently awesome programs we have come across."
The Sunrise Ocean Bender sets sail every Monday morning, 1 – 3 a.m. on WRIR lp 97.3 FM, to find something for your ears, and something for your head … From psych to prog to pop and whatever tributary we can find on the way … and right back around again. There might be a map, but the destination is up for grabs. If it all goes right, we may just get lost. Meet me at the muster station … it might be a long week.
