Franklin Delano
all my senses are senseless today

New album from one of our favorite Italian bands. acoustic hypnosis and electric explosions, minimalism and noise, the atmospheres are compatible to Will Oldham or Califone, but also Slint and The For Carnation. seven tracks of wide space, faint lights, smoke and naked hearts.

Resplendent I
in a wilderness

Resplendent is Michael Lenzi (fire show, number one cup). This is the first of a series of ep's that he will be releasing. Here's what it's about: '....unabashedly unencumbered. gone are the traditional guitars and drums, replaced by ones and zeroes, a glitch-and-burn aesthetic.' Think fire show meets early-Tricky.

the zincs
moth and marriage

The Zincs are lead by James Elkington. He wrote, performed, and produced "Moth and Marriage" in its entirety. The album was conceived during the first year Jim lived in Chicago when he had nothing better to do with his mornings than eat cereal and write and record songs. "Moth and Marriage" was recorded in Greg Norman's (engineer from Electrical Audio Recording) basement on the South side of Chicago. In addition to a thumb piano, Jim also played nylon string and electric guitars, drums, keyboards, bass, harmonica, and percussion. He sings as well, in a soothing, wavering baritone that appropriately suits the lyrical themes of alienation, loneliness, getting older, and lying. These are spare and mellow pop songs that are somber but not sad. Melancholy but not maudlin. "Moth and Marriage" are the two things that frighten The Zincs most of all.

the zincs
forty winks with the zincs

On his return to England at the start of 2002, Jim Elkington found that both his song-writing and his choice of cover versions had subconsciously gravitated to his unconscious and work commenced on a sleep-themed EP. Teaming up with Dan Mulligan (sophia, layabout) this EP was made using random keyboards, broken gutars, a homemade children's drumkit and a bicycle. The CD features three new Zinc's songs as well as covers of Sleep by 70's pop deconstructionists This Heat and Good Night by 60's pop constructionists The Beatles.

Plasticactus sprinkles on the sawdust and serves it up hot for all the kiddies to enjoy in this country-slapped indie-smacked debut.

tape loops, bizarre sounds, snippets of lo-fi sentimentality, dreamy psychedelia, instruments that play themselves, violent clown spams, lengthy expressions of the impossible, and songs that take tailspin turns in directions heretofore not mentioned.  autobody features current and former alumni from drumhead, cattleprod, fly ashtray, dymaxion, wharton tiers ensemble and others.  this cd, culled from autobody's 5 year reign in brooklyn is an excellent introduction to the sound that has been described by one reviewer as "music for subversive, cheerfully evil cartoons drawn by people on moderately priced drugs.".   from silly bird records.(1999)
