about

Brisbane's The Scrapes make howling mechanical dirges with fiddle (Adam Cadell) and guitar (Ryan Potter) & other F/X, with plenty of nods to Henry Flynt, Tony Conrad and The Dirty Three. With a few under-the-radar releases in Australia the duo present their definitive statement: The Songs of Baron Samedi. The ritualistic moans and eerie bellows they've honed over the years soar and creak and spit on this set of songs. (Chris Berry, Soft Abuse)

"The Scrapes continue to explore new territories and evolve their sound. The Songs of Baron Samedi is a powerfully engaging piece of work, showcasing a band not afraid to venture out into the unknown."
- Adrian Marsh, 4ZZZ FM

"Difference ‘tween The Scrapes and your favorite drone duo is, well, they’re better."
-Cerberus, Tiny Mix Tapes

"Sharp."
-Byron Coley, The Wire
