Managed to check out Wolf Eyes and Gothtrad this past friday. In a way I wish they could have literally dovetailed, as there were lots of points of resonance between them. Art All Night was also enjoyable in the way that it celebrates everybody’s talents on the same level without judgement. I’m so down with that. Shout out to Andres for making it even more fun.
Here’s what’s going on this week:
CRIMINAL CODE – ex GAG from OLYMPIA, WA on deranged records, iron lung records, etc.)
HERO DISHONEST – hardcore punk from FINLAND
ZEITGEIST – babes in the front, parent in the back
SILENCE – dark post punk graveyard walking type jams
4314 Main Street, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15224
HOT DATE (Brooklyn)
Shayna Dulberger – upright bass, electronics (cellular chaos)
Chris Welcome – guitar, electronics (mothguts)
In search of the same sound, an upright bass no longer functions in the supporting role and a guitar is not used as a melodic or chordal instrument. An instrument is only a tool used to achieve the whole palette of sounds. All hierarchy of pitch, rhythm and form are abolished. Any structures that occur arise independently and organically. From the highest to lowest frequencies and from the purest tones to the noisiest textures, all are achievable.

“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 are more downtempo and cerebral. There are beats, but there’s also noise and sound sculpture.” – PGH CityPaper
