WOLF EYES with MARK MORGAN (http://www.wolfeyes.net)
Detroit noise cum trip metal unit Wolf Eyes touch down in Toronto to drip some of their psycho-jazz slow burners with special guest NYC guitartist Mark Morgan (Sightings). Wasted guitar jams meander amoungst crippled electronics. Layers of distortion give blistered songs a new meaning, as maligned vocals crawl through the thick air. Foreboding sparsity creates spiritual unrest. Languid sax shreds like the sound track to some lost Twin Peaks episode. Gnarled psych riffage curls back on itself. These contemporary experimental noise pioneers have collaborated with Anthony Braxton, Merzbow, Sonic Youth, Richard Pinhas, John Wiese and loads more in their search for new sonic mutations. Their current trio with revered noise guitarist Mark Morgan marks another in a series of special collaborations the ever evolving form of Wolf Eyes. A not to be missed mind destruction unit.
Lorenz Peter & M. Joakim's dark electronic post punk duo juxtaposes blistering electronics with driving synth beats. Bit of electronic notes shatter & reform in this spectral manipulating of tapes, modulators and synthesized sound. Like the score to some demonic haunted house, you can't escape it's pulsating rhythms, as this intricate web of refracting sound envelops you. Rhythmic synth patterns dance with strings of modulated notes, creating a twisted whirlwind of pulsating beats lost in a storm of dissonance.
Toronto free form punk jazz wanderers Retired bring dark eerie forbidding sonic meanderings to life with Percussive movements that cruise seamlessly through ominous bass tones. Guitar growls unhinged, as saxophone splutters a bitter syrup. Like a junkyard creation slowly breaking apart as it races towards an impending destruction that will never come. Becoming more haunting & mangled as it evolves from one form to another. The swing of jazz emanates from what is more like some lost kraut jam.
