Release Date: 30th July 2021
Holy Tongue (Al Wootton and Valentina Magaletti) return for their second outing exploring the outer realms of dub and psychedelic post punk. This EP sees them further focusing the sounds of their debut release with the addition of saxophonist Ben Vince adding another element to the swirling spree. Heavyweight basslines, driving rhythms, layers of percussion and FX all collide to create a psychedelic-spiritual dub-dance trance meditation. Look out for Holy Tongue live this year.

Holy Tongue is a collaboration between percussionist Valentina Magaletti, best known for her work with Vanishing Twin, Tomaga, UUUU, Raime, Nicolas Jaar and Jandek among many others, and producer Al Wootton.
This first EP is a product of an improvised session in East London. Heavily influenced by dub reggae, the two bring a mutual appreciation for the experimental dub of On-U-Sound, Muslimgauze, and post-punk bands such as Liquid Liquid and 23 Skidoo to the forefront of the sound.
The result is an EP of psychedelic, free-form, high energy, spiritual dub-dance music. Amidah Records is an offshoot of TRULE Records, specialising in more experimental sounds.
