Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
PC Worship s new LP Buried Wish is an off-kilter journey through hook-laden alternative rock, experimental tape manipulation, downer punk riffs and long form improv-based psychedelic instrumentals. As the album weaves through the damaged re appropriation of objectionable sounds, it seeks to explore a contrast between the traditional rock band format + instrumentation with outsider experimentalism by exploring new ideas related to composition and unconventional (often homemade) instrumentation. Buried Wish further embodies PC Worship s dedication to categorical ambiguity as it opens with a prelude written for a horn quartet + tape loops and ends with a pseudo-americana, sludge folk song, while throughout the album, continues the familiar PC aesthetic of unfiltered, subconscious inspiration, fueled by dystopian lyrics, eternal guitar solos and vamped out sonic exploration. Buried Wish was written and recorded by Justin Frye in the basement of a condemned building throughout 2016 in Bushwick, which flooded half way through the process. It was sourced from drawn out solo tracking, upright bass experiments, large ensemble improv sessions and random input from various collaborators over the past year, with contributions from Michael Etten, Jessica Papitto, Shannon Sigley, Mario Maggio, Jordan Bernstein, Pat Spadine, Greg Fox, Marilu Donovan, Kassie Carlson and Adam Junkyard Markiewicz, among others.

What's Your Sign?

Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
From its drums-bashing, cacophonous beginning to its skronky trumpet-loaded conclusion, the instant chemistry betwixt Rhys Chatham and Oneida is what makes What’s Your Sign? such a seamless and natural partnership: ageless vanguards of minimalism, free-improvisation and noise banding together in a holier than thou union of NYC experimental rock royalty. Four years after their inaugural union at Ecstatic Music Festival inside New York City’s Merkin Concert Hall produced a cosmic din for the ages, two genre-obliterating renegades who’ve made indelible marks in the experimental music pantheon—the NYC-bred, Paris-based avant-garde guitar legend and minimalist composer Rhys Chatham and long-running psychedelic free-rock juggernaut and Brooklyn institution Oneida—have joined forces on their first collaborative album proper titled What’s Your Sign?, due November 11th, 2016 via Northern Spy Records.With pedigrees carved in hall-of-fame-caliber collaboration and ever-expanding symphonic ensembles (a Chatham touchstone is A Crimson Grail (For 400 Electric Guitars) while Oneida’s twelve hour long free-improvisational drone-fests is stuff of legend), it’s no revelation the legendary composer and No Wave veteran and the left-field freethinking noisemakers would make for kindred spirits.

About With her first strictly solo record, 222 -- an experimental, bedroom-produced hybrid of folk, musique concrète and psychedelia -- Odetta Hartman and her partner, sound artist and producer Jack Inslee, have created something completely original and unsettling: badass banjos, detuned violins, superstitious stories and eerie soundscapes all give backing to beautiful vocal stylings that range from sensual to spooky.
Cloud Becomes Your Hand - Rest In Fleas
Cloud Becomes Your Hand
Rest In Fleas
LP | 2016 | US | Original (Northern Spy)

Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Like visions from a 3D comic book, color fantasies explode in vivid new sound-tones on Cloud Becomes Your Hand’s Rest in Fleas. The band’s second album for Northern Spy establishes the Brooklyn sextet as purveyors of googley-eyed psych-pop of the highest order, delivered in a kinetically singular dialect of the musical language of fun. Over eight tracks, Cloud Becomes Your Hand affirm their position in the secret lineage that links the pingings of the BBC Radiophonics Workshop to the happy goofing of Syd-era Pink Floyd (like if the busted gearwork at the end of “Bike” started its own band?), a line that connects the energy dome power of Devo to the collage-happy Frosted Ambassador wing of the Elephant 6 Recording Company. Feed your head, right? But while the collective destination might be the sweet innocence of marmalade skies, the Cloud irregulars are hardly musical naifs, executing dazzling conceptual and compositional turns that puts them just as much in the family of New York’s uncompromising experimental music scene. Just at home at hanging out at Brooklyn avant-garde institutions like Roulette as on homemade stages in over-enthusiastic loft installations, Cloud Becomes Your Hand are ready to find the doorway to elsewhere in any environment. Rest in Fleas functions much the same, using sleight of hand and pure charm to lash open a portal to the giddy surreal by any means necessary, from learned technique to spontaneous creation. Along with fellow travelers on the kosmik-noisenik highway like aggro-eclectic Guerilla Toss and Horse Lords, Cloud Becomes Your Hand continue to fight the good fight by not fighting at all, just emitting only the most colorful of vibrations and letting the air and all available ears do the rest.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Conrad Harris and Pauline Kim Harris, the husband/wife violin duo comprising String Noise, have built a reputation as relentless contemporary music advocates with a propensity for the most intense and advanced classical music of today. As performers they have championed the work of extreme contemporary composers such as Bernhard Lang, Eric Lyon, and John Zorn. This release goes back to the roots of String Noise. Between 2009-2011, Eric Lyon composed Noise Triptych, the first work written for the as-yet-unnamed duo. Lyon then provided the moniker String Noise, and the duo made their debut at the 2011 Ostrava New Music Days festival. This release presents Noise Triptych, and its follow-up composition, The Book of Strange Positions. Accompanying these works is a set of arrangements of punk rock songs created by Lyon between 2011-2015. The combination of classical music and punk rock might seem surprising, but here it makes sense. Lyon’s recent music has been built on the technique of “articulated noise,” in which most creative decisions are made at random, and the composition process is largely about managing serendipity. While this may seem abstruse, Lyon’s music itself tends to be driving, intense, and immediate, with strong ties to a punk rock sensibility. This pairing presents Lyon’s music in the context of some of its own musical affinities, while presenting familiar punk rock songs from a fresh viewpoint.

Odetta Hartman is a young woman keeping the spirit of Old New York alive. With a heart-stopping voice and wideranging instrumental talent, she carries cowboy soul into a new era where country can clash with computers, and bluegrass isn’t afraid of bass. With her first strictly solo record, 222 -- an experimental, bedroom-produced hybrid of folk, musique concrète and psychedelia -- Odetta Hartman and her partner, sound artist and producer Jack Inslee, have created something completely original and unsettling: badass banjos, detuned violins, superstitious stories and eerie soundscapes all give backing to beautiful vocal stylings that range from sensual to spooky. 222 presents itself as a post-modern audio novella: its 22-minute running time makes it as concise as your favorite Netflix episode, and its eclectic edge is sure to leave your head spinning by the time you’re through. In addition to writing all of the songs, Odetta sings, plays banjo, violin and guitar and incorporates samples from her own field recordings to create a truly idiosyncratic world of sound. A companion remix EP will be released in collaboration with Full Service Party, featuring unique reinterpretations of each track from some of the finest talents in the electronic music world.The 25-year old East Village native grew up around experimental filmmakers, street poets and after-hours debauchery, all thanks to her pioneering parents (founders of the local institution Two Boots Pizza) who have cultivated her passion for musical performance since the tender age of 4 years old. She currently teaches neighborhood girls age 8-18 how to produce radio and music at the Lower Eastside Girls Club. Odetta Hartman has explored traditional forms of Americana with previous projects - she was a popular performing artist in The Sparrows while at Bard College, she toured the country with songwriter-magician Gryphon Rue, has ample credits for multi-instrumental session work, and self-released two EP’s with some of the best musicians NYC has to offer.

Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Nobody grows up wanting to be an artist’s artist. Appreciated by the sub sect of the sub sect is like being the beauty queen at the leper colony. Hell, anybody who claims they grew up wanting to even be an artist rather than an astronaut or a Cthulhu is probably lying or was a corny kid. Art is hard and degrading and generally bullshit. Your friends will find you irritating and your parents will certainly not throw you a parade. But if you’re an artist you’re an artist; the soul will fuck you every time, what can you do? Shilpa Ray is, through no fault of her own, one of our unsung great artists. Having made her bones with the gothic Sturm und Drang of Beat The Devil and moving forward to the blues erosion of “…and The Happy Hookers” Shilpa Ray has been, armed only with an incomparable voice and harmonium haunted by the ghosts of dead lovers, perpetually crying in the wind, hoisting both middle fingers in the general direction of god. It’s not a life a wise man would choose. Shilpa Ray kicks against the pricks but the pricks keep coming. But, again, what can you do? Well, that’s been the narrative until now. With Last Year’s Savage (maybe a nod to Leonard Cohen maybe a nod to Barrence Whitfield) Shilpa Ray has taken the pain and dark funk of earlier sounds and made explicit the sublimity that was always there just below the surface. The conversation has become less a break up with doors ripped rom their hinges and more the last pained pillow talk before parting. The obsessions with sex, death, bodily functions, and betrayal (not necessarily in that order) remain but Shilpa has expanded the palate to convey the resignation, the simmering discontent of an artist disenfranchised and held down. This is a quieter rage than the music Shilpa Ray has made before, more plaintive and considered, even if it’s the quiet of a hand gripped tight on the axe handle. The music remains gorgeous and stirring in its directness while Shilpa herself remains, thankfully, entirely and inappropriately threatening. Shilpa Ray has, up till this, point, yes, been a “artist’s artist.” Just about every musician in New York City, who doesn’t hate her, loves her and Nick Cave, in both words and deed (having her open up for him and his Bad Seeds often), sings her praises to all with the ears to listen. Obviously there are some who will always prefer lesser versions of the Shilpa Rays of the world (as if there could be more than one), preferably with blue eyes and On Brand Waifishness, but the truth will, eventually out. Talent this big can only be kept down by for so long before the sky cracks and we all drown in the blood of angels. Either way, this is Shilpa Ray’s year.

Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The former backup singer for Nick Cave steps out from his shadow to release the Make Up EP, a pair of imaginatively adapted covers. On Lou Reed’s quirky “Makeup,” described by Rolling Stone as an “image of the…sissy traipsing around and lisping about effeminacy,” Shilpa Ray filters the story through the antithetical lenses of explosive noise and charming cabaret. Next, Dinah Washington’s legendary “What A Diff’rence A Day Makes” is given a seventies soft-rock makeover, and you find yourself completely bewitched by Shilpa’s captivating vocals and dreamy wurlitzer piano. Only a brief taste of what’s in store on her brilliant upcoming LP, Last Year’s Savage (May 19th on Northern Spy), these songs are sure to whet the appetites of long time fans and new ones alike. In Shilpa Ray’s words: I had an epiphany about “Make Up” (written by Lou Reed) when I was in Palermo around Christmas time after the Bad Seeds tour. Lou had died late October. I found out 10 minutes before I had to play solo before a sold out crowd at the Hammersmith Apollo in London. Needless to say, his passing had a massive effect on me. He was my childhood hero. Europe was hard to grasp for me in a lot of ways. The culture, language barriers,the overload of dairy and ghettos of freshly placed refugees from countries, some I had never heard of before. I was exhausted and getting drunk outside a bar where you can get Marsala for a Euro, basically all I could afford. There were tons of kids dancing in the streets getting high and happy, when this stray yellow lab walked up to me and starts swaying back and forth. The song Make Up came blaring through the stereo and I started swaying with the dog. It was one of those rare moments I felt alright. We had decided to go to the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame during a tour stop in Cleveland. I was pretty cynical about the whole thing and tour hadn’t been smooth. I had to send a dude home for being a brat in Kansas City among other places and was feeling pretty exposed as the bad guy. It was a stressful situation and trying to justify my actions in the passive aggressive world of music where no one’s making any money felt daunting. I seperated myself from the group, the costumes, the Katy Perry and the Beyonce and hung out in the listening booth for hours. Dinah Washington came on and put every wannabe singer, myself included, to shame. What a voice! She draws her breath so long and never loses the listener. I had to challenge myself with this one. I hope I can sing like her someday.
