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
