“David Cintron – No On” included in The Best Experimental Music on Bandcamp: May 2019


The Best Experimental Music on Bandcamp: May 2019
“Back in 2011, Cleveland musician David Cintron made his first solo album after years playing with vital rock bands including Terminal Lovers and Scarcity of Tanks. No On, originally issued in an edition of 100, dealt not in rock riffs but elongated tones and dense drones created with guitar and electronics. Now reissued digitally, the album still sounds mesmerizingly dense and thoughtful. There’s a lot going on in the two 22-minute tracks, but Cintron never sounds rushed—in fact, the patience of his drones make you want to get your ears closer to the speakers so you can hear all the subtle changes and gradual arcs he weaves. There’s a space-bound feeling to these pieces—reflected in titles “Through the Center” and “Outer Rim”—but it’s not sci-fi music. It’s sound for inward exploring.”
– Marc Masters

Terminal Lovers w/ Messthetics

I’m very excited to play with Brendan Canty’s new band Messthetics. Brendan and Joe are a phenomenal rhythm section, formally of Fugazi, teamed with guitarist Anthony Pirog to form this excellent instrumental unit. Terminal Lovers will be playing a rare Cleveland show, and will be featuring new material from their forthcoming release.

The Tenses + Bren’t Lewiis Ensemble ‎– Daughter Of The Boot

Leroy Tick and Silvia Kastel contribute field recordings to Daughter Of The Boot, a new release out now on Chocolate Monk. This collaboration by The Tenses + Bren’t Lewiis Ensemble features Oblivia and Ju Suk Reet Meate of Smegma, Lucian Tielens, Gnarlos, and The City Councilman.

On a gorgeous spring afternoon in the PacNW, there is no better way to spend it than inside a 420-square-foot windowless room rattling sleigh bells with your foot, dropping rubber balls onto a broken old bongo drum, spinning scratchy records backward by hand, and sputtering into a shenai steadily and slowly so that it sounds like you’re pushing a desk across the floor. Here is sixty-five minutes of spontaneous sound collage, bent improv, non-musical weirdness that resembles injured mammals on the verge of giving up, surprisingly delicate noise, and general quasi-cinematic clatter. The two pieces delivered here by these clunkmeisters — recording together for the first time — are rusty, crusty, dusty and musty epics in the tradition of groups such as Morphogenesis, Solid Eye, Taj Mahal Travellers, and early Zoviet-France. Cover art by Ace Farren Ford. Numbered edition of 80.
