The band, in its current incarnation, caught my attention early last year by announcing their plans to release not one, or two, but three albums in the year of Listening to either release, you would expect that the currently played album is how it was meant to be heard, the preference is really in the hands of the audience.
As quickly as the first two were made public, a third album was released. What could easily have been confused as an attempt to cover up a lack of songwriting skills in previous releases, was now stripped down just a little to reveal that underneath all of the noise there was real talent present.
Frontman Josh Thomas is no stranger to the use of reverb and noise as an artificial instrument. Prior to the existence of HDP, Thomas fronted Spidermumsa band similar not only in sound, but in the delivery of their physical product, using stenciled black sleeves to house each of their two CD-R releases the last of which featured drumming from Gaurav Bashyaklarla of CVLTSa trend that continued on with the Ponies.
Many of the nine tracks present on Sunbather had been tossed around in demo form by the band for most of the year, a few even appearing on a live recording the band posted online from a Recordbar show they played earlier that spring.

Latest opus from Philadelphia's reining astral-kings of space-rock-metal. Martin Sexton — Sugar Coating  2xLP Kitchen Table Given that Martin Sexton waited seven years after his album Wonder Bar to release Seedsthe fact that a mere three years passed between that disc and Sexton's next studio set, Sugarcoatingsuggests something resembling urgency about getting these songs out to his fans. And if in many ways Sugarcoating follows a stylistic path that Sexton has pursued in the past, the title cut is certainly a surprise, a jazzy shuffle leavened with slide guitar and silky harmonies whose lyrics offer a pointed critique of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and how they were sold to the public, a blending of sweet and sour that recalls Phil Ochs "A Small Circle of Friends.

The songs came together quite easily with key changes and rhythms evolving quite instinctively.

Taken from the original four-track cassette recordings and remastered for vinyl under supervision of Vinci.
His work with guitars and keyboards piano and rhodes has started from pure radical improvisation and has drawn to the investigation of drones sounds, static music. He explored for years the use of repetitive structures within different perspectives. In many cases, these figures involved long developments. Cuts is his effort to merge this attitude with concise forms and tight evolutions. War Party — Teenager On Drugs 7" Windian With an A-side that young Brian Wilson would have been proud of, Texas' War Party presents an elaborate and beautiful pop song that has a chance to be missed and blown into the winds of time.
A blistering, blazing, rallying call for grime's first renaissance. Young Trynas — Probably Music 7" White Denim DC hardcore has a rich and illustrious history, and you might as well stuff it all into the toilet when Young Trynas are out on the prowl.

But alone time doesn't necessarily have to be depressing, sometimes sitting with your thoughts at home is cathartic in its own hushed way. Clouded by angst and a prominent bassline, I'm also getting early Weezer vibes from how enjoyable their ennui is. The constant drive to pigeon-hole artists often leads to the media creating all manner of new sub-genres to describe acts but few bands can share the 'classical post-alternative ambient nocturnal atmospheric neo-progressive folk world rock' label that one journalist gave Gazpacho while struggling to describe the band's distinctive sound.
More orthodox descriptions have suggested similarities to Radiohead, Porcupine Tree, Marillion and even Aha but such simplistic comparisons don't do justice to the true nature of the band's music. The band got its start in in central New Jersey—where the members were in high school— playing music that could be described as progressive rock leavened with juvenile humor.

Noon is rage. Noon is Noon It's that feeling in your throat when you're chasing someone you're unable to catch, the desperation and the heat, when it feels like the whole world's laughing at you. It's enough to make you want to kill someone. But even as they rage, Noon strives for transcendence. From ambient to explosive, from sparseness to overload, from acapella to industrial, from frozen to ferocious, from a dream to a nightmare. Most of Finding Release isn't safe for the radio.
Riffs on political correctness, '70s radio fodder, and suburban disquiet are spread thick on Americana. It's no secret that Orgasmo Sonore has chosen to mine particularly the '60s and '70s library scene here, for connoisseurs of the genre have longed championed these decades as a time when library music was its most fantastic and funky peak.

The intensity of the drums within the songs was off the charts. You can easily see how it could scare other musicians. Over the course of several studio dates in Hollywood, California, "Trio" players Cameron Stallones, Alex Gray and Mitchell Brown successfully planted a garden of "non-dimensional" objects, not only spontaneously generating these objects but also mastering their nurture and cultivation.

Can't kids offer up a labyrinth of mutating rhythms and harmonized vocals that wonderfully boil into screeches, howls, and wails. Scattershot vocal delivery sits perfectly over the stripped down crude beats and punk bass, where lyrics are often bleak social commentary, full of bile and delivered with genuine working class rage, but not without humor, but all soaked in the impossible realities of the everyday.

Any and all musicians I have conscripted since then are all part of the same organic, whole band and party of my plan to bring my music—made on nothing but my ideas, shoestring, and some duct tape—to the world. Our music reflects all the joy, madness, passion, sorrow, agony and excitement in life, which is often so difficult to directly express.
Music is our greatest expressive outlet for all the joys and madness and sorrows and passions in life. Backed with a truly great folk-punk original, "Cry For The Trees".

By utilizing both a steel slide and e-bow technique, Camden has moved into micro-tonal territory to bridge the textural gap between guitar and synthesizer while examining their inherent differences. It has been measured, each move well-considered and clearly intentional. Caminiti has immersed himself in electronic production on Meridiancreating organic sounds through his machines, patching sounds that recall the brassy resonance of horns and hazy choral clusters.
Synthesizers hiss and crackle under layers of reverb and fog. Sounds undulate and implode in upon themselves, with bursts of noise dropping in and out to create shadows of rhythm. Caminiti's electronic systems do not run autonomously -- the sounds heard on Meridian required real-time human interaction to bring them to life, and that human touch is essential to the mysterious atmosphere he produces on this new album.
Longtime East Village resident Cumming has been intimately involved in the music and art scenes of downtown New York since he was a teenager. After being featured on the cover of Ryan McGinley's debut book of photos in he continued to work as a model and actor before forming The Virgins.

Bonus tracks from previous editions have been replaced by rehearsal tapes that capture two songs that later turned up on Medicine Show, as well as four songs that no one has ever heard, including a nearly minute Krautrock inspired jam.
Breathe Out. Includes the single "Tattoo. A champion bass fisherman and emerging hick-hopper, Farley has come a long way from making his own mix tapes to being a staple on CMT's Party Down South. The result is a record that cloaks Gengahr's inherent weirdness in peaceful melodies you'll want to wallow in for hours.
Wennerstrom's spellbinding vocals are of course front and center, her one-of-a-kind voice as primal, cathartic, and indefinable as ever. The band always comes off like a hoard of stampeding elephants, just ripping through these magnificently huge gutbuster gallops. But Luminiferousthe band's new album, might stand as one of their best albums. Even on the moments where it lets up, as on the sludge-blues dirge 'The Cave,' it doesn't really let up; it just finds another, more interesting way to stomp ass.
With the rap-focused sound ever so slightly on the back burner, HudMo allows a boundless maximalism to fuel the experience.

He's a pop formalist with a taste for faded glamour and dusty twang that emanate vintage musk. On his second LP he trades the dour new wave minimalism of his debut for slacker love songs that ride funky bass lines, and jaunty, shuffling rhythms that give his boyish, wearily warbled slacker melodies a little oomph. Super Future is feather-light in its charms. It's an album about daydreaming, and yet its best cuts have the tightest concepts and the punchiest delivery Girl, I Wanna Know, Creepinand sometimes it feels like Love has to overcome his dreamy tendencies toward meandering banalities to get there.

Many of these are audible to the human ear whilst others go unheard by us without the aid of specialist audio equipment. Sounds of Insects sees N. Racker Pre-Cert Home Entertainment and David Orphan Folklore Tapes calling into question the value of human modes of communication, taking due care to unravel the innermost workings of the arthropod mind.
Bringing to mind elements of the work of artists like Faust, Pierre Henry and Autechre, Sounds of Insects is a mysterious synthesis of specialized field recording, homemade instrumentation and sympathetic reassembling where it is uncertain where one sound source ends and another begins.
