    This is a bizarre moment for me. I'm friends with Infinite Body and Mirror to Mirror in real life... and I'm on a message board for Coachella and someone not only knows who they are but is giving out their recordings. Small world.

    if it's any consolation. i've convinced 4 people to buy those tapes today. and it's not like they won't sell out anyway (normally those ekhein tapes only have 50-75 copy runs).

    it is a small world...

    oh, and i'm pretty pumped about the new infinite body LP. comes out tuesday.

    Oh, it's consolation plenty. I have most of Infinite Body's records but I only paid for one of them... The new album is his best so far. Some of the best sound I've ever heard.

    This Sean McCann album is really something, too.

    Do you like White Leopards?

    hadn't heard of 'em. myspace sounds good. looks like they have a release coming out on digitalis and moribund tree. i'll be sure to pick them up (and they are playing berkeley in the near-ish future, so i'll check them out).

    oh, and sean mccann is gold. if you haven't heard phylum sigh, seek it out.

    You should. Live is twice as good as the recording.

    Listening to the Infinite Body stuff right now. Good shit, Jared. Many thanks.

    Oh, and what's the best site to stay current on when/where some of these acts are touring? I've never really been to a noise show (eh, Fuck Buttons, but that doesn't count) and I'd love to see a lot of the aforementioned acts in this thread in a live setting.
    9/17 - Buzzcocks - Fonda (?)
    9/20 - Crosby, Stills & Nash - Santa Barbara Bowl
    9/21 - Caetano Veloso - Hollywood Bowl (?)
    9/26 - William Basinski - Pasadena Arts Council
    9/28 - Bob Mould - Roxy (?)

    i bet there is a local calendar that folks in the LA community populate (SF equivalent: http://dardardar.org/). in addition there might be a local mailing list. i'll look around. beyond that, keep an eye on local venue calendars that have noise shows. at first glace here are a couple shows, there are probably lots more... i'm just not familiar with the venues down there.

    2/14 at the Smell there is a really intense show going down (Lasse Marhaug and John Wiese).

    Pacific City Nightlife Vision Band(Vodka Soap/Skaters), Zaimph (Hotogisu) Stelar OM Source are playing at echo curio in LA on 3/1.

    Infinite Body is playing Echo Curio on 2/17

    I gave Mandala 2000: Live at the Kichijoji Mandala II by Ruins a listen not too long ago. Fucking fantastic. Anyone seen them live?

    Does anyone know the Faraday Trippers? Sadly I don't have anything they've recorded.

    http://www.myspace.com/faradaytrippers

    it's really cool droney stuff made with theremins. One of the members doesn't have eyes.

    I'm totally going to see them on Saturday. They're playing a free show.

    The new Yellow Swans is incredible. And I though At All Ends was a way to go out.... Holy shit. I can't wait to pick it up on vinyl from Type.

    For any noise enthusiasts, I highly recommend this. It has been out for a while but they recently just made it available for digital download. Stream the EP here:

    Yeah, the new Yellow Swans album is really killer. It actually seems like it'd make for a decent step into noise: there's an element of melody here, and a really great sense of development over the course of the pieces. I don't know much at all in terms of Yellow Swans material, but this is a definite winner.

    It basically took At All Ends to the next level. There are some similar melodic elements on that album... but every song worked more towards an explicit crescendo. This album seems a little more intentional about the structure of the songs and the album as a whole. It's probably my favorite thing that they've done. Easily my favorite album of the year so far.

    Limited Space is like listening to a decayed tape of a Pink Floyd psychedelic jam as radio frequencies push to take over the speakers. It's awesome. Each track is better than the last.

    Tape decay is definitely a big part of what they do. When they played live they used a reel to reel to decompose the loops they recorded.

    It's very evident, and they're really masterful with it on this release. I just finished the final song. It's one of the few noise records I've immediately wanted to put on again.

    Well, I was basically just hoping for something that was a little more accessible than Pop Tatari.

    Basically I was trying to get a few things done while listening to Super Roots 7, but ended up just staring at my computer screen jaw agape for the majority of it. I can't wait to put it on again, I haven't been that floored by an album in a long time. I mean, just the percussion alone, holy shit.

    Wow. Going Places is really incredible and downright gorgeous in a lots of spots. Definitely a good intro to noise if anyone was looking.

    I can't stand a lot of what he's doing. I saw him live at the On Land festival and was probably biased the minute he hopped on stage wearing raybans and acting like he was ultra cool... but i think the attention to detail is severely lacking. it's all mush. hearing him talk about his music afterwards also was pretty nauseating.

    granted I haven't really given it a proper chance on record... i've been telling myself to do so and i keep forgetting.

    There's enough noise music being made not to support insufferable douchebags.

    I just listened to his "Acres of Shade" single. I totally hear you on the attention to detail bit. It was pleasant in a background music sort of way, but it just kind of drifts along without direction or resolution. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it isn't an artistically rewarding thing. I am going to put on his albums now to see if they are any better.

    I should note that I approach pretty much every Not Not Fun (not to be confused with No Fun) release with a baseball-sized grain of salt. There is a lot of crap put out on that label (and some seriously incredible stuff as well).
