SOME BECAME HOLLOW TUBES (Montreal, QC)
A new project combining the talents of two of the finest producers of noise out there. Eric Quach (THISQUIETARMY, etc)'s looping layers of instrumentation give their music an ominous air but with the drumming of GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR's Aidan Girt sitting underneath it, their music has a familiarity that's hard to shake even when hearing it for the first time. Industrial landscapes flicker before your mind's eye and crumble again, and tension stretches time to the point where you're not quite sure how long you've been listening.
Their new album, Keep It In The Ground, is out now on Gizeh records and this is how they describe it in their own words:
'6 self recorded improvised drone rock waves from Eric Quach (thisquietarmy - relentless DIY powerhouse) and Aidan Girt (Godspeed You! Black Emperor).
Chords loop, pedals get pushed, pounding drum parts get added and subtracted, it starts quiet and gets loud. Eric no longer needs to worry about the rhythm, Aidan no longer has to worry about the song structure. All four ears stay cocked and listening even if neither of them are very good at keeping eye contact.
One life to live, pound drone and loop this moment into the present, hahaha lets keep joking, it's ok.... the music has our sadness. This world is dying, the machines are getting better and better at eating material things to create nothing and all we can do is make wordless music in response.'
ASTRAL BODIES (Manchester)
Last time they played here was to a sold out crowd in March (NØ#02!) and it's fair to say they went down a total treat. Space rock laden doom riffs with some very poppy hooks - on paper that sounds difficult to pull off well but bloody hell they make it look easy. (Ex-)members of THE FREEZING FOG, DAY FOR AIRSTRIKES, CLAW THE THIN ICE (see NØ#04!), WELL WISHER (see NØ#05!), and more!
Now playing without a saxophone and down to a trio, Kollega have playfulness to their electronic jazz and aren't afraid to keep you guessing. As with a lot of jazz, the best place to experience them is when they're playing live - they really fill the room out with their sound and start to worm their way into your head. In a good way.
