Dynamo Sound Collective Presents:

MOONRISES
[Chicago | Captcha Records]

Plastic Crimewave (aka Steve Krakow) on guitar, Libby Ramer on organ, and Ben Baker Billington (Quicksails, Tiger Hatchery, Wasteland Jazz Ensemble) on drums.

“They take you way beyond yr average wanna-be psych band….. sublime space-outs change to propulsive noise-assaults on a dime…..eastern drone, guitar affects cascading all around, slowly building into one propulsive ecstatic end of the world jam…precision drum freakouts plus hypnotic guitars and interstellar organ… you have to see ‘em to believe the glorious noise they make…..” – Tiny Grooves

Incredible. One of the best psych-rock bands out there right now. If you dig Wooden Shjips, Egg, EL&P, Neu, Agitation Free, Blue Cheer, etc… you must attend this gig.

HUNTED CREATURES-8CYLINDER-ONEWAYNESS-DOLORES BOYS

A night of various freak music at The Shadow Lounge with:

DOLORES BOYS [Brooklyn, NY | Psychic Mule]

“a DIY junction between industrial, goth rock and contemporary noise… the duo sustains the angst as the soundtrack to their horror scenario drifts from chaos to eerie calm.” – Deli Magazine

“The way the Dolores Boys straddle the nu-Goth and neo-Surf vibes is well done…the atmosphere of the music isn’t some foggy graveyard on a cold autumn night, its hot, claustrophic and urban. Unending daylight, blinding hot sun.” – Cassette Gods

HUNTED CREATURES [Dynamo Sound | 905 Tapes]

Cosmic psychedelia inspired by the Grateful Dead, Jan Hammer and Judas Priest.

8CYLINDER [Rhinoplex | Unmapped North]

Gameboy audio software and music.

“Early 8cylinder material was fast, aggressive breakcore ‘people would move to it; it’s not really dancing, it’s more of a freak-out kind of thing’ — but the most recent 8cylinder releases, on [Unmapped North], is more downtempo and cerebral. There are beats, but there’s also noise and sound sculpture.” – Pittsburgh City Paper

ONEWAYNESS [Erie, PA | Onomastic]

“Onewayness is the synth-drone guise of Erie, PA’s Adam Holquist, whose output has been steady growing via radioplay and mostly self-released work. His debut full-length is released on his own Onomastic label in an attractively yet simply printed CD-R. Holquist is resourceful, citing synths, field recordings, and live instrumentation among other things as sources; all of these show up on Blue Star. While wearing its influences pretty heavily on its sleeve, this is som.e interesting stuff that should bode well for what I imagine will be a bevy of future releases.” – Travis Bird/Foxy Digitalis

tcrps and Dynamo Sound Collective Present:

AARON DILLOWAY

[HANSON RECORDS | SHATTER ALL ORGANIZED ACTIVITIES]

“Aaron Dilloway is an experimental musician. He has been releasing and recording music since the age of 16. He was a member of experimental bands Couch, Galen and Universal Indians. He is a former guitarist and tape manipulator for the experimental band Wolf Eyes, which he left in 2005 to live most of that year in Kathmandu, Nepal. Currently he runs the noise record label, record store and mailorder Hanson Records, which he began in Brighton, Michigan in 1994. Hanson then moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan for several years, before finally settling in Oberlin, Ohio, after a brief return to Ann Arbor. He performs solo using eight track tapes and vocal sounds, and records modular synthesizer music as Spine Scavenger. Recently, he has played with an ever-changing cast of sound artists under the name The Nevari Butchers. He is a major enthusiast of urine recycling.” – MTV.com

REGRESSION

[NATE YOUNG | WOLF EYES | MOON POOL & DEAD BAND]

“Keeping up with Wolf Eyes’ myriad side projects has always been a losing battle, so we’ll save you some time by saying this: Nate Young’s recent run of Regression records is worth a listen even if you despise noise music. That’s because it’s not really noise at all. More like extended episodes of pure dread, true to Wolf Eyes’ unsettling ethos, yet eminently listenable if you enjoy feeling a little creeped out…” — Self-Titled Mag

COCK SCENE INVESTIGATOR

Joe Roemer, Nick Painter and Edgar Um gettin’ bizzay. Historic reunion show.

DYNAMO SOUND COLLECTIVE AND tcrps PRESENT:

Cut Hands

The newest project of William Bennett of UK noise/industrial legends Whitehouse.

“William Bennett, with or without Whitehouse, is a complicated man. Cut Hands, his latest project, might initially seem like a departure from the harassing Noise-critique of Whitehouse, but there are continuities….Cut Hands is one of the only truly thoughtful responses to the question of where Noise can go next, because it at once breaks with and continues it so profoundly. Afro Noise I is a remarkable record, whichever way you look at it, and it will be interesting to see how Bennett’s dedicated fans react to it. If he no longer says anything out loud, it’s because he doesn’t need to. Menacing, intricate and every bit as cerebrally scarring as any viciously dark synthpolemic, the sound does the work for him.”
