NO VISITORS


by quttinirpaaq

http://quttinirpaaq.bandcamp.com/album/no-visitors

Quttinirpaaq, the shadowy Austin crew lead by Matt Turner, is back after a four year absence with their Rural Isolation Project debut No Visitors. Fans of Brainbombs, Skullflower, Les Rallizes Denudes or general lovers of speaker/inner ear destruction take note! Layers of in the red fuzz, feedback, vomit, claustrophobia, no eye contact, distorted 808 beats, extended sludge work outs, wind-up glam drums and suspicious voices from other rooms.

Absolutely. It's not my actual favorite SY album, but I find that every time I listen to it (couple times a year maybe), I like it twice as much as I did the last time. So, in the 10 years since its release, it has gradually inched its way up about thirteen-fifteen spots (depending on what you consider an album)

I remember unwrapping it the day it came out, and playing it on the way to work. Hearing "Pattern Recognition" for the first time was one of the best listening experiences of my life, but for some reason I considered it my
least favorite Sonic Youth album for years. But I honesty have no idea why I felt that way. It's not quite as testosterone filled as most of the music that melted my 23 year old heart, but every listen brings about new revelations and insights about the album. A pretty triumphant album, in that it brought the DDN sound back, and meted it with the jammy, bohemian vibe that NYCG&F sparked and Murray Street perfected. It's really the go-to record for fans of the group's entire discography.

I started this post, abandoned it, and finished it over the course of well over 24 hours. Hopefully it makes sense, because I certainly am not going to proof read it.

Great post! Revelations is exactly what that album is filled with, such great production, always something new layered in to discover. It is like A Thousand Leaves 2.0..

I also will never forget getting that album, I camped out in front of Aomeba Records to get it on release day to get a free ticket to the Troubador Album release show.. I ended getting dissed and yet blessed, so it was fantastic, and then when I put on the disc in my headphones walking back to the subway to head home, Pattern Recognition came on and I just about had a heart attack, it was simply that fantastic a tune. PR -> Unmade Bed -> Dripping Dream is an epic sequence belonging to the vaults of all time.

Sea of Cowards Dead Weather


 


And I don't like it. The instrumentation is brilliant, the vocals shit. Its like too much of bad Jack White has rubbed off on her, Horehound was more Memphis Bluesy which suited her better. I can only take doses of Jack White, which are more appreciable for me. I enjoy them in fact, with moderation. Allison is hit or miss, most of the Kills is absolute shit too, but a few of their tracks and the entirety of Horehound are fantastic. The stageshow for the tour of that album was also epic, that chick's stage presence just kicked my ass!! It was like an authentic version of what Courtney Love was going for in the mid-1990s.

The lyrics are better than 99% of the music that pretends to be rap music these days, but I just don't really dig Kanye, neither his cadence or his approach, so I can tip my cap to albums like this, but I just ain't feelin it. I ain't feeling the beats, its not my steez, its that hyper-aggressive East-Coast style, more yelling than rapping. meh.

Here is what I want to know, why is the whole country jumping about this dude? I didn't get it when he blew up like 5 or 6 years ago, I don't get it today. I appreciate that the brotha brings some substance to pop err.. rap music, but really, that substance gets lost in translation across the millions of folks who really don't give a shit and just want to bump. If I want some pseudo-conscious political rap, I'll bump that DP y'all
