From the Chicago Reader: http://www.chicagoreader.com/listings/static/treatment.html#LUASA
LUASA RAELON - Ohioan David Reed is Luasa Raelon; he's also Envenomist, Brittle Foundries, and the owner of Snip-Snip Records, which specializes in limited-edition CD-R releases of industrial, electronic, abstract, and noise music of nearly every flavor. Snip-Snip's stable is full of constantly twiddling, droning, and grinding thinkers who are so prolific they seem to be inviting us to treat their releases as ephemera, but nothing that Luasa Raelon has put out sounds disposable to me. The oppressive quality of last year's The Poison City (Eibon) feels meticulously constructed--the music crystallizes haunting shapes out of its swirling electronic mist, hinting at something unseen banging around in the gritty air. Bloodyminded, Panicsville, Is, Climax Denial, and NC open. 9:30 PM, Empty Bottle, 1035 N. Western, 773-276-3600 or 866-468-3401, $8. / --Monica Kendrick / Luasa Raelon's page at Eibon Records' Web site: http://www.eibonrecords.com/releases/Luasa.htm

This is the first of probably lots of quick updates after returning from tour:
- Ben Syverson uploaded a batch of new photographs of BLOODYMINDED from the August 4th Chicago show on his Flickr page. Here is a direct link to the photoset:
- Here is the link to Brandon Stosuy's new column on Pitchfork, "Show No Mercy." I participated in an amusing heavy metal CD review session before we left town:
