going blank again: an evening of contemporary white noise
The first in a series of local shows featuring shoegaze, drone, dreampop, and noise rock. Episode One includes static from:
. . . plus madflowr (ROCKcandy/make-out party) and DJ Sonic (Now!/Landspeeder) spinning before, between, and after the sets.
Landspeeder = Sonic Drone Pop. Melodic, catchy dreampop sometimes immersed in hazy shoegazer dissonance, influenced by Ride, My Bloody Valentine, Pale Saints, Teenage Fanclub, et al.
Alcian Blue = Meshing hard pounding rhythms and atmospheric guitars to create space rock anthems and roaring noise. It's the music of Pet Sounds orchestrated by F-15 Engines.
Skywave = Taking rock and roll and pushing it to it's limits, Skywave takes influences from the shoegaze era and turns it up a few notches creating super intense walls of sound.
Camera: Ex-LowSunday members further explore dark textures and complex song structures with total pop sensibility.

tim took over djing after i left. i skeedaddled during the alcian blue's set. before going home, however, i dropped by galaxy hut to say hi to mike (lefty's deceiver/matt pond pa) cos i had told him i'd drop by. anyhow, i completely missed their set, but said hi nonetheless and he gave me a copy of his solo project (audible). very very good indeed. also very good = sleep.
