Out now courtesy of Trepanation Recordings. Cassettes are almost gone! Streaming and digital download for your displeasure are available. Drone, doom, gloom and more noise than you can shake a rotten stick at! Get it!
The latest installment in my Joyless Noise series is now up for streaming and downloading. Joyless Noise, Vol. 4 is focused on towering walls of guitar, and features masterful contributions from my friends Marshall Marrotte (guitar) and Jeff Rieter (synth and Kydd upright electric bass). All basic tracks were recorded live with no looping, except for Jeff’s upright addition on track 3, which completely makes his track the beast that it is.
Once again, Austin Gaines contributed fantastic artwork to the series, with this image being a particular favorite of mine from the brilliant bunch.
Joyless 5 is already in the works with another special guest. As of right now, all tracks on the next volume will have a dazzling guest drummer…
More info soon! Until then, I hope you enjoy #4!
Endless 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!
