Endless Tunnels

Endless Tunnels Image + textEndless Tunnels is my latest recording of deep drone pieces, and it’s available now from the good folks at Montreal’s GBS Records. This past weekend was pretty busy, with us laying down 3 new No songs at Sarcophagus Studios in Auburn, AL with Jamie Uertz (Hematovore) . . . and it completely slipped my mind that Endless Tunnels was about to be out there howling its deceptively far-away howls into the voids between human ears (or not!). But, yep . . . it’s swirling away there in the thin darkness of the web, doing its deep dark thing.

This is my second full-length for GBS (alongside the radio performance EP Without Hope), and is very linked to its predecessor, I Wonder What Ever Became Of Me. Once again, I used Boulanger Labs’ amazing csGrain granular processor/filter to manipulate live sound, but this time, instead of playing the Moog guitar through it, I used an Arturia MicroBrute, which is an amazing little analog synth. These were great sessions, where I was able to really feel swallowed up by the sound being created live there in the recesses of my basement. It works well at all volumes, but, as always, I’d recommend listening to it as loud as you can stand through a good system that you sonically trust. There’s a possibility of a future limited cassette release as well. More on that soon! Until then, feel free to listen, download and enjoy!

My year in musicks…

photo (21)I have enjoyed myself immensely making music this year. I’ve gathered up all the noise I’ve created in 2013 and put it here for full streaming. I hope you have a blast listening, and might want to pick up copies/downloads for your ears. Most things I personally release outside of what is put out there by other labels are priced from $1 to $5. Every little bit really helps me in being able to continue doing one of the few things that I truly love.

I deeply appreciate everyone who has supported all my work along the way. I can never thank you enough.

Below are players for everything I’ve done in 2013! Fire ’em up, enjoy…and thank you!

I Wonder What Ever Became Of Me: Deep, deep drone on Moog guitar, live through csGrain.

Baghouse – 3/16/13: Time-bending improvisation on Moog guitar with Baghouse from Athens, GA.

Fantasy Violence – Frangments: Instrumental electronic music created completely on a pair of iPads via Dropbox with my friend Christopher Davis (Battle Path) from TN. Limited edition tapes here.

Mothmeat – Instrumental acoustic guitar music with my friend Drew Martin (BPM, Distant Kin).

Migration Of The Device – Originally conceived to be on half of a split lp. Could happen one day. Until then, there are these 4 digital incantations. Massive electronics & curses.

Suckbuddy – Two Lips: 2nd release by my buddy Keith Goodwin (Liquid Brick, Pferd) and I wiring up our synths and making one huge instrument.

Borne Down Upon: My third solo recording of dark electronic music. Completes a trilogy of recordings that I began in 2011. My favorite of the three.

Without Hope: Longform drone on the Moog guitar. Recorded live on the air on WUOG in Athens, GA.

All this, plus even more racket can be found at jeffmcleod.net. Thanks for listening!
