October 9, 2019 Update

OCTOBER 9, 2019 UPDATE

This Sunday, BLOODYMINDED plays at Co-Prosperity Sphere with Pharmakon and Itsi. We anticipate showing up with a strong lineup. Our next show was just announced and tickets go on sale on Friday. We'll be playing with Burial Hex and NIKA, an exciting new solo effort from Nika Roza Danilova/Zola Jesus. The show will be held at the International Museum of Surgical Science in the striking Hall of Immortals. There will only be 100 tickets available, so it's best not to hesitate on this if you're interested. We'll have one final 2019 show to announce, soon... Anatomy of Habit is gearing up for our two upcoming shows, including our first trip to Madison, WI. I've completed four more Super Eight Loop re-masters and I've been listening carefully to a new set of mixes for the forthcoming Ensemble Sacrés Garçons album... the songs sound excellent and we should be shifting to mastering ASAP.

BLOODYMINDED

BLOODYMINDED is a heavy electronic band that was formed in New York, in 1995, after the dissolution of the pioneering American post-industrial noise group Intrinsic Action, which was founded by Mark Solotroff, in Chicago, in 1984. BLOODYMINDED’s live shows are exceptionally energetic and are characterized by physical engagement, layers of abrasive analog synthesizer, aggressive vocals, and abundant feedback. In a live context, BLOODYMINDED celebrate and deconstruct the rock and roll performance.

THE FORTIETH DAY

The Fortieth Day is the duo of Isidro Reyes and Mark Solotroff, both key players in the heavy-electronics outfit BLOODYMINDED, a band known for its aggressive and confrontational live shows. In The Fortieth Day, Reyes and Solotroff utilize guitar, bass, drum machine, and analog synthesizer to create epic, blackened, psychedelic-industrial drone soundscapes.



We recently delivered a new master to Sergio Sanchez at Ruido Horrible in Mexico City and we're currently working with him on artwork and packaging design. More news soon...

MARK SOLOTROFF

I recently remixed The Body's song "Denial Of The Species" for their new remix album, which is now available to pre-order from Thrill Jockey. Digital is out this Friday (10/11) and vinyl will be released on 10/25:


The Body "Remixed"
http://www.thrilljockey.com/products/remixed

Emblematic of their love for the collaborative process, The Body chose to celebrate their 20th anniversary with a special limited double LP of remixes from their previous albums, simply titled Remixed, and including a deluxe poster cataloguing the nearly 100 shirts the band have printed in their career. The artists selected to for the remixes include longtime friends, artists who The Body have influenced or been influenced by, and artists with whom the band share a mutual respect.

Coming soon:


Azar Swan "The Hissing of a Paper Crane"
https://azarswan.bandcamp.com/album/the-hissing-of-a-paper-crane

"The Hissing of a Paper Crane" will be released on October 25th via Primal Architecture Records. Explorations of a scorched Earth, a bleak cartography of disappearance and mourning. Six tracks of doom electronics and unforgiving industrial beats. Featuring collaborative contributions from Mark Solotroff (BLOODYMINDED, Anatomy of Habit), Terence Hannum (Locrian, The Holy Circle), Doug Moore (Pyrrhon), Paige A. Flash (Cult of Youth), Thomas Boettner (Straight Panic), Justin Blaire Vial (Kindest Lines), and Ed Strohsahl (Billie Davies). Mixed by Kris Lapke (Alberich, Prurient) / Artwork by Alexandra Desipris

All Your Sisters (Los Angeles, The Flenser)
allyoursistersmusic.bandcamp.com
All Your Sisters take on the post-punk paradigm is decidedly non-retro. The basic building blocks are there; heavy drum machine rhythms, pumping melodic bass lines, swaths of atmospheric guitars and cold synth melodies, but where many bands are content to wallow in the shadows of their influences, All Your Sisters sounds like the future.

Echo Beds (Denver, The Flenser)
https://echobeds.bandcamp.com/
If you were to amplify oil drums, broken cymbals, battered basses, unrecognizable tape loops, dilapidated voices and push it into the red you'd have a pretty good idea of what to expect from a live set by Denver based band Echo Beds. With the expressed intention of volume as therapy and put through the grinder of the self-practiced DIY ethos- this is visceral, political, and genre defying music.

Moze Pray (San Antonio)
https://mozepray.bandcamp.com/
Moze Pray, AKA Libby Del Barrio, is a multi disciplinary artist based in San Antonio. No Tears, is an unapologetic account of life’s feedback loop around the Wheel of Fortune. Sacrificial actions through ceremonial performance reveals a gateway founded on truth and torment. Moze Pray’s ability to combine musical production, poetic vocalization and ritualistic body performance is charged by chaos and amalgamates into a product of pure expression that defies the rose colored filters that aim to conceal the harsh realities.

Anatomy of Habit (Chicago)
https://anatomyofhabit.bandcamp.com/
Anatomy of Habit formed in Chicago in October 2008 and is composed of Alex Latus (guitar), Isidro Reyes (metal percussion), Skyler Rowe (drums), Mark Solotroff (vocals), and Sam Wagster (bass + lap steel). The band encompasses elements of doom metal, post-punk, death-rock, noise-rock, industrial, psychedelic, and shoegaze. The band's last album, "Ciphers + Axioms," was released by Relapse Records.

Sanford Parker (Chicago)
https://sanfordparker.bandcamp.com/
(BURIED AT SEA, MINSK), metal producer extraordinare (PELICAN, VOIVOD, NACHTMYSTIUM, CORRECTIONS HOUSE & a thousand others). "Lash Back" is dark, heavy and at times an unsettling blend of industrial and electric music, sure to appeal to Parker's vast and diverse fan base. For fans of Corrections House, Jesu, Mirrors of Psychic Warfare and James Plotkin.

Capture & Exploit (Chicago)
https://portrayalofguilt.com/album/the-only-thing-man-has-mastered-is-hate-pog005
Chicago Power Electronics/ Death Industrial. Capture & Exploit puts oppression, hatred, and all things violent on display. Industrial delivered in an onslaught of heavy electronics, feedback, and distorted vocals.
