I still have vivid memories of the gig Holy Tongue did at the Intonal festival together with Ben Vince. Shortly following their appearance, their new and third EP came out on Amidah Records in the UK. III is a 4-track 12″ that opens with the frenetic “Spirit Mask” that you’ll recognise from recent sets. The influences from dub are apparent, with Magaletti’s drumming bringing the amalgamation of styles to a unique level.

Make sure you check out the vinyl reissue of Valentina Magaletti’s own album A Queer Anthology of Drums, out on bié Records last month. The album was originally released without the bonus track on Cafe Oto’s label Takuroku two years ago.
