Thurston Moore Co-Produces New Religious Knives LP

 
Brooklyn psych supergroup Religious Knives, comprised of members of Double Leopards and Mouthus, have another one coming atcha October 14 from Ecstatic Peace. It's called The Door, it was recorded and mixed in a handful of Massachusetts locales, and-- because nary a drone can pass through the Bay State without bearing the dude's mark in some way-- it was co-produced by the band and that Thurston Moore character.

The Door creaks open just after the Knives close down their European tour, which they'll kick off tonight (September 17) in Paris.

The Door:

01 Downstairs
02 Basement Watch
03 On a Drive
04 The Storm
05 Major Score

Heh. I always thought the term "Supergroup" meant more than having a few noise nerds from other noise bands in your band.

Universal truths

Ecstatic Peace thrives despite the help
By MICHAEL BRODEUR | September 16, 2008


 

Awesome ColorPicture it: Northampton 2006. A team of blandly suited men in sunglasses stand at the threshold of Thurston Moore’s house. A second round of handshakes ensues, this time with a brisk air of departure. The men silently repair to a black van that reads UNIVERSAL on its side, and it disappears around the corner. Thurston calmly closes the door, turns, leans against it, and lets out a long breath. Then he goes, “YES!!!” Cut to Moore wiggle-dancing to “Into the Groove” on the sofa in his briefs, singing into a zucchini. This is, most likely, not how the distribution deal between Moore’s basement label Ecstatic Peace and Universal Records went down — but isn’t my version cooler? In any case, the deal has been awesome: now the world enjoys increased access to some really degenerate rock-influenced art-noise flotsam. Here’s some of the latest:

Hush Arbors, “Follow Closely”

Ecstatic Peace will release Keith Wood & Leon Dufficy’s Hush Arbors debut for the label (though they’ve released dozens of records and tapes over the past 10 years) on October 21 — and fans of occasionally gnarly psych-folk à la Six Organs of Admittance and Vetiver should report directly to this preview track. Religious Knives, “Basement Watch”
There’s little question what kind of door Religious Knives are referring to with the title of their upcoming (October 14) album, The Door. I put it on and my speakers started leaking little plumes of Nag Champa. Here, members of Double Leopards and Mouthus ride the snake all the way to the ancient lake atop smoldering organs, hot guitars, and Maya Bernstein’s mindfuck monotone.
Awesome Color, “Eyes Of Light”
Awesome Color might be one of the most aptly named bands ever. “Eyes of Light,” off their stepped-up sophomore release Electric Aborigines, is a swirling vortex of white noise, fiery psych-rock, drug drones, and flickering lickage. It’s sure to be a highlight of their September 23 show at the Middle East upstairs.
Black Helicopter, “Golden Days”
Boston’s own Black Helicopter are hard at work mixing and mastering their forthcoming as-yet-untitled full-length to follow up 2006’s Invisible Jet. Here, they may seem a bit more pleased with the world, but they still sound intent on putting a big crack in its core

Andrew's earliest external production work was with the group Wolf Eyes, on their now out-of-print 12" EP Fortune Dove. Since then, he's chosen to work on a select and seemingly random set of projects. Most recently, he completed production and mixing on the album, Through The Panama, by Brooklyn, NY based three-piece art rock band, Sightings. The album was jointly released by Load Records and Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace! label in October 2007.

Wolf Eyes began as a solo project of former Nautical Almanac member Nate Young, with Aaron Dilloway joining in 1998, and John Olson in 2000.[1] During this time, the band also briefly relocated to New York City and at one point enlisted Andrew Wilkes-Krier, now known to the public as Andrew W.K.


..........

It's fairly common knowledge.


HAHAHA! I´m an complete idiot!!!

It didn´t make sense to me at all, so I thought you where kidding.
The ecstatic peace connection makes perfect sense now

Lets get the party started!

"Merzonna".

I had a joke noise band called Merzonna ESP. I think it's on soundclick if you're curious.

Also, funny review about BOSS... "one of the Markers top 10 most accessible releases ever." What does that even mean?!

Cool article regardless though, thanks Moshe.

Tall Firs (Ecstatic Peace) + Gareth S Brown + Hank Haint @ Brudenell, Leeds - 28th sept - THIS SUNDA

no votes
? by brudenell

Tall Firs + Gareth S Brown + The Hunter Gracchus + Hank Haint
@ Brudenell Social Club 28th September
£5 advance, £6 door
Tall Firs are a New York City based underground electric folk rock band, originally formed in 1990 by Dave Mies and Aaron Mullan in Annapolis, Maryland.
The band consists of guitarist and vocalist Aaron Mullan, guitarist and vocalist David Mies, and drummer and vocalist Ryan Sawyer. Their self-titled full-length album was released in 2006 on the independent music label Ecstatic Peace!.
Tall Firs grew out of an over-the-phone collaboration between teenaged David Mies and Aaron Mullan, who were school friends that lived too far away to walk to one another's houses. Allegedly, the two would sit at home and cue up cassettes from the Circle Jerks and Sex Pistols to play over. They would not play their first concert until eleven years later.
In 2001, the band was signed to Ecstatic Peace!, the record label of Thurston Moore. Their first self-titled album was made in the Sonic Youth studio, and after Moore and Andrew Kesin, heads of Ecstatic Peace! heard the album, they asked to release it.
The band has played such venues as Tonic and The Stone. They base themselves in New York City's Williamsburg neighborhood, and have opened for or played with bands such as Sonic Youth, Oneida, Awesome Color, and P.G. Six. They are currently[when?] on a nationwide tour with Emily Haines.
Tall Firs' next album, entitled Too Old to Die Young, was released in March 2008.
Aaron Mullan began collaborating with Chris Corsano before moving on to work as a sound engineer and instrumentalist. David Mies played in the Baltimore, Maryland-based scuzz-rock scene before moving to New York. Drummer Ryan Sawyer hails from Texas and was one of the first drummers in the band At the Drive-In. He moved to New York City in 1997 and has recorded or played live with acts such as Mekons, Massive Attack, TV on the Radio, and The Fiery Furnaces. In addition to his role in Tall Firs, he serves as a member of Stars Like Fleas and Eye Contact. Ryan participated as drummer 62 in the Boredoms 77 Boadrum performance which occurred on July 7, 2007 at the Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park in Brooklyn.
