Simon Maisch of Melbourne post-punk group Bitumen has just launched a solo endeavour called The Werm, after a simple card trick. On the self-released EP Skincrawlin’ that came out just a few days ago, you get four tracks of breakbeat mixed in with elements of acid. Sometimes breaking into jungle beats, like on “Run Faster”, but the rest of the EP is considerably slower, with “J Freak” almost approaching a triphop feel. It’s certainly a stylistic departure from Bitumen, and a welcome one at that. Check out the trippy video from the title-track too.
