Cult of Rigonia

AthFest Artist Spotlight: Cult of Riggonia

There’s a good chance you’ve never heard anything like Cult of Riggonia, a psychedelic collective from Macon, GA. They were perhaps described best by The 11th Hour: “Cult of Riggonia could really be from another time, or another planet. There are snippets of ancient Aztec worlds mixed with remote Appalachian villages, mingling with a lost order of monks, feeding through a Martian amplifier. And somehow it is all still pleasing to the ear. We recommend open minds, eyes and ears for this one.” But even this can’t capture the myriad of sounds, instruments, and experiences that come from Riggonia. Delve into their captivating Twitter presence and Whe’re Waldo-esque mural of a website to get a taste of Riggonian culture and ideals.

Since the band’s incarnation, they’ve self-released several volumes of music and recently released their first full-length LP with Cloud Recordings entitled Nematode Rodriguez Presents​.​.​.​/​Harry Chanchfield Presents​.​.​.. Creative Loafing called it “a freewheeling drive of lysergic, Southern-rooted psychedelia that takes shape as a schizophrenic blur of vibrant, rhythmic absurdity.” The tracks are thick with vocal yelps, aural twists, and layers of keys, drums, and the unrecognizable.

The final capstone on Riggonia culture is their live performances, explosions of sound and color on a crowded stage. Check out their past show at Go Bar here:
