Sunday, March 23rd
BLACK MARBLE (NY)
Black Marble’s Weight Against the Door was an auspicious, attention-grabbing debut that made the Brooklyn duo the go-to opening act for today’s darkwave greats (Light Asylum, TRUST, the Soft Moon). Now, less than ten months later, bedroom producers Chris Stewart and Ty Kube follow that gritty, surgically-precise EP with A Different Arrangement, a new full-length that is, as its title suggests, a departure from Weight’s calculated coldwave formalism.
The influence of early synth pioneers like Thomas Leer and Robert Rental is felt across A Different Arrangement’s eleven tracks, as are the fingerprints of the record’s hard-line do-it-yourself architects.
If Weight Against the Door constituted a long, cold night, then A Different Arrangement heralds the moment when the radiator finally sputters to life, flooding the room with heat as the sun rises over a horizon of Brutalist tower blocks. The homemade soundtrack to a still, uncertain dawn, A Different Arrangement is a striking evolution in Black Marble’s sound.
We are truly excited to have YOU. back at Something Cold after their excellent last performance with Black Marble in 2012 at Jumbos. Hallow vocals over icy layers of analog electronics and washes of guitar. Their new full length LP, “Sunchaser”, is due out in May 2014 on DAIS records.
RITUAL HOWLS (DET)
Ritual Howls have been stirring up the best coldwave Detroit has ever had the pleasure of calling it’s own since 2012. They have since released several sought after cassettes on former Detroit-now-LA imprint, Nostilevo, as well as a full length LP on Urinal Cake Records. Rumors are stirring of an upcoming release on Ghostly’s sister label, FELTE…
Travis Galloway is no stranger to SC or Detroit’s stages with his minimal industrial tape music & warped vocals under Siobhan. Raw, lo-fi, difficult, exceptional.
