    Yup, that was Arthurfest. The vocalist was Malefic from Xasthur, in his only live performance (he says it'll be the only one he ever does.) He's got severe claustrophobia, and they did most of Bathory Erzebret before the sound blew out. He got out of the coffin and one of the Sunn dudes got so pissed at the lack of electricity that he kicked the coffin off the stage, not knowing that a bunch of kids had chosen to sit on the floor of the orchestra pit. The coffin almost crushed them, and apparently the cops showed up after I left.

    Ahh, I was walking out as the coffin came down, so I missed a majority of the ruckus.

    I was under the impression that Squarepusher was a pretty straight forward electronic act, but the songs I listened to today from Music is One Rotted Note are closer to noise than anything else.

    Squarepusher is anything but "straightforward." Typically people are going to group him with Aphex Twin, Autechre, etc., bu his sound can be really varied. He incorporates a lot of drum n bass into his IDM stuff too. You'd probably dig the bulk of his catalog, it's super interesting!

    Music is Rotted One Note reminds me of nothing so much as Miles Davis during the period from Bitches Brew to On the Corner.

    Excuse me if this has already been asked. But I'm curious about sigur ros. I'm considering checking them out at osl and I don't know what to expect. Would it be best to research them before the show or would I appreciate them more with a live introduction?

    Sigur Ros conflicting with anyone that you really want to see? If so, I recommend checking them out beforehand.

    Thanks for the recommendations. And no there's not much of a conflict. I've seen metallica twice before and they were cool but no need to see them again. Plus i always hear wonderful things about sigur ros from all you boardies, and you guys typically have good taste in music

    On the other hand, I don't necessarily think you need to get oriented with the discography to really enjoy their set. It'll be a religious experience either way. Maybe just get to know their sound a little bit.

    Agreed. I just think it makes sense to try them out before skipping a "must see."

    With a buzz in our ears is pretty approachable compared to their others. That one two punch of Gobbledigook and Inni mer... right out the gate is a lot of fun. Fits the mood more often then the others.

    ( ) is most unique and from everyone i've ever introduced to the band they say it either gets them immediately or is a big grower much later on once they know the group. My favorite by miles though. Always has been.


    Lets be honest though "It's incredible" goes for all of their releases in different ways. With them all having a very unique tone/approach its not like there is right answer with where to start.

    I will recommend you listen to their live album from last year Inni. It has a pretty great selection of songs and you can get an idea of their concert presence.

    Personally, I'd be extremely overwhelmed processing their music in a live setting if it was the first time I had heard them; that could be the exact kind of experience you want though.

    Of course. My personal preference aside, nothing wrong with starting with that album.

    EDIT* I also agree with Cutter regarding Inni.

    I've really enjoyed everything I've heard from them. They do some stuff that incorporates Arabic influences that I was particularly fond of.

    You should also check out some Muslimgauze if you haven't before.

    I wish I had a recommendation. I've listened at random but usually just on shuffle. I think the only one I've listened to as an album was The Rape of Palestine, because what a great title.

    Yeah, I didn't mean to have a negative tone if that's how it came off. It's just kind of like recommending In Rainbows after OK Computer for a Radiohead newbie. A solid album, without a doubt, and yes definitely accessible, but perhaps not the best group of songs to really give someone an idea of what they're in for in the live setting. Anywho...
