Fractured #10 – Yurt: Flesh On Bone

Conceived in a space time out of time – music from the sonic elders, given to the Earth.

I’ve always been fascinated by Yurt’s psychedlic space rock.

They’ve cloaked themselves behind stage names for a long time, so it’s fantastic to now see them step forward to explain their music to John Mulvaney for the latest in his superb Fractured series.

Yurt’s music really takes you away. That swirling, churning palette of riffs and movements is just immersive. Its pulsing feel belies a steely technicality though – albeit rightly not the type they call ‘watered down shit”.

The craft that they put into it is clear from John’s video. And in fact what I find most intriguing about them in this is how little of a care they give for the expectations of others.

Those are always the best bands. Yurt are doing and have done their own thing since the start – and its that quality that as ever makes this insight into their music, and that of the Irish scene generally, so essential.

  1. Class. I reckon this is the best one yet.
    Fantastic band and video!!

  2. Excellent , nicely shot , nicely edited and a great band with lots to say !

  3. Another great video. Hadn’t heard these guys before.

  4. This is a really well done video. I tip my hat to the band, well done for following your own path and obviously having thought through why you’re doing things. I completely agree with their ideas on scenes and if you’re doing what’s expected then music, is not necessarily coming from a true place. I’m searching on Bandcamp…are there any albums ppl recommend?

  5. Pariah Child Says:

    Honest and refreshing. Like it. Like Yurt. Good job!
