Pão Live at Trem Azul

Pão is an improvised music trio from Lisbon. 

Pedro Sousa, Tiago Sousa, and Travassos play a blend of keyboard drone, mad saxophone, and electronic ambient sounds that straddles the line between jazz and psychedelia. Their first album is somber, occasionally harsh, unforgettable.

"The trio’s music is a sound continuum falling somewhere between the intersection of La Monte Young’s brand of eternal music and the tense interplay and occasional outbursts present in many of European free-improvisation’s landmarks, all the while permeated by a sense of expansion and peaking, and by the constant addition and subtraction of elements over an always present layer of silent crudity."

Noise Problems & stress.fm recorded the band in a historic concert at the end of 2012, live at Trem Azul, the über-cool record shop in downtown Lisbon.

Ascetic - The Citizen Made of Glass

It seems like an age since we released Ascetic's A Network of Lines That Intersect, a brooding mixture of dark techno and ambient industrial noise. Originally cutting his teeth on breakcore under his Machinochrist moniker, the UK-born, Berlin-based artist has more recently been refining this brand of intense and atmospheric pseudo-techno.

There is plenty to get your teeth into with The Citizen Made of Glass, from solid stompers to beatless wonders, all of them carrying a dexterity and depth that mark Ascetic out as a producer of genuine talent.

Pretzel Bill in a Witch's Blood Sauce...; Grasshopper on My Castle of Quiet, 28th May 2014

Wm. Berger / Tracy Widdess

Ah, Grasshopper! A mainstay of My Castle of Quiet playlists from the very beginning. This Brooklyn duo has traversed the most-eerie of improvised / otherworldly territories, and come out the other end, as outstanding soloists and collaborators, in many projects outside of Ghop. Their musicianship remains expert, the sheer quality of them "knowing what they're doing," and choosing to do THIS, is one of the great charms / inspirations of Grasshopper, still very much the "mothership" for Josh and Jesse.

Fans will find the band largely in familiar territory here, painting a slow-burn garden of creeping dread and pulsation, cradled by ethereal long tones. "Witch's Blood in a Sauce" finds them especially "on," adding unanticipated horror-dressing to their usual array of mesmerizing sound evolution. Always good, and always at home on MCoQ.

Grasshopper have new work out or coming soon, on various formats / labels. The new, full-length Grasshopper LP (their third 12" on vinyl), Dark Sabbath: Symbols of Evil is coming soon on Hausu Mountain. Jesse and Josh also have a solo / split tape, Josh Millrod / Shingles, also on Hausu, there's a full Shingles cassette, First God Planted a Garden (2AM Tapes) ,and a Josh Millrod solo cassette, Seeking the Millenary Kingdom, on Solid Melts. (MCoQ archive links: Josh | Shingles)

Grasshopper on My Castle of Quiet, v.1 (2009; our second live-musical guests, ever!)

Thanks as always to audio engineer Juan Aboites, for his professionalism and talent, and to Tracy Widdess of Brutal Knitting, for continuing to immortalize my crappy iPhone band captures.

I Meant To Break Your Will, Never Your Heart

Recently I released an album entitled “I Meant To Break Your Will, Never Your Heart”. This album was originally finished in October of 2013 and was scheduled to be my first physical release. Due to various issues the album has sat dormant during that time. With the release for physical product still several months off I have decided that I would prefer to get the album out an into the world as soon as I was able. I realize this release comes very shortly after my last album “Come On, Ghost." but I believe the two albums represent polar opposites.

I believe this album represents some of my heaviest and noisiest material to date. The album is mostly composed of bitwise operations in Supercollider with some additional production in Reaktor and Reaper.

Further tales from the Australian Underground: Black Pines, Mudlark, Motion & Gatherer

Dig deeper into the Australian underground with four new releases from the Wood and Wire label - Black Pines offer a ragged, psych-damaged lava-wall of ash and guts and glory; Motion erase improvised boundaries, merging avant-garde jazz and left-field electronics; there's an audacious leftfield avant-rock debut from Perth's Mudlark; and Gatherer offers ambient/drone pieces intended for the spaces between your headphones. 

WW27: MUDLARK Zimdahl

The debut release from Perth's Mudlark has already been dubbed as "bristling, vibrant instrumentals that prove antsy and unpredictable" by Mess + Noise, "a hard listening indie-jazz fusion cacophony that destroys your ability to think or reason" by The Music, and Cool Perth Nights concluded that it was "a weird riddle, a fascinating and deeply enjoyable mystery".  Pivoting between only two instruments, with no re-amping or overdubbing, Zimdahl aims for a truly accurate rendition of Mudlark’s unique sound in a live environment.

WW29: GATHERER Amoeba Miasma Void

Amoeba Miasma Void is the new EP from Gatherer - the solo project of Morgan McKellar, one-half of Canberra improv-noise duo, Cold House, formerly of Sydney band Underlapper and his now defunct solo project Morning Stalker. Manipulating (mostly) found-sounds from audio libraries, online video, and field recordings to create improvised sample-driven, Amoeba Miasma Void is a collection of four ambient/drone pieces intended for headphone use.

WW30: BLACK PINES Harsh Out

Black Pines is about dislocation. Two friends separated by real life, wondering out loud about how and why one whole side of rock history has evaporated. That missing side – the abject horror of psychedelic rock – is where this project lives. This isn’t a revival or pastiche. No jams. No art. This is criticism. // Ian Rogers (No Anchor) plays guitar and sings. Benjamin Thompson (The Rational Academy) plays guitar.

WW31: MOTION Syllepsis

Motion draws on experimentalism, avant-garde jazz, left-field electronic music and more. The result is music that deconstructs song forms, explores textural possibilities and is both hypnotic and immersive.  Syllepsis sees Perth-based multi-media artist, Kynan Tan join the band to aid in the creation of a collection of music where electronics and instruments meet in a constant state of tension and release.
