Matmos ~ Plastic Anniversary

We’ve always known that Matmos could be fun, but we never knew how funny they could be ~ until we watched the video, “How To Turn Your Plastic Into Audio Gold.” The couple is entertaining enough to host their own TV show.  They’ve been

Black to Comm ~ Seven Horses for Seven Kings

How do you go about capturing regression in an avant-garde form? Experimental approaches will always undermine any traditional references, and even at their most dystopian they will always capture an abrasiveness that is fundamentally new. Seven Horses for Seven Kings

YoshimiO / Susie Ibarra / Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe ~ Flower of Sulphur

There’s something doubly poetic about the term Flower of Sulphur: on one hand, there’s the striking association between sulphur as integral to certain repellent smells and a flower, and on the other hand, there’s the chemical meaning, which refers to

Keiji Haino & SUMAC ~ American Dollar Bill – Keep Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look At Face On

ACL 2017 ~ Top Ten Experimental

This may be where music is headed ~ but then again, maybe not.  These artists are iconoclastic in their approach to sound.  From radio waves to distortion, puppetry to improvisation, they blaze their own trails, and those who can’t keep

SAICOBAB ~ Sab Se Purani Bab

When noise legend YoshimiO joined up with fellow Japanese musician Yoshida Daikiti’s project PSYCHOBABA in the early 2000’s, they decided to change the name to SAICOBABA. Phonetically, it’s still the same word, but then the meaning changed radically, from something
