COP and Dire Con reviewed by Steve Wildsmith

The good Steve Wildsmith posted up a dual review of the last two releases from El Deth.  These are, of course, the self titled Dire Con album and urgency by COP.

Things That Escape Gravity [part 2] – 12.29.2011 – Nathan Brown, Aaron Shugart-Brown, Arrison Kirby, Matt Zingg & Jeremy Law

Click to download the tracks:

“Show You a Way”
“Back When You Had Your Thing”
“Cobra Slomo Backflip”
“Night Boat”
“Earth Angel”
“Broadcast”

This is the second half of our holiday session.  Matt Zingg and Jeremy Law join us here.  Chip Pennington was also present, but he stayed quiet.  The music is a little more unhinged now, as the libations were flowing through us good and steady by this point of the evening.

I stepped away from the drums to run beats and electronics instead.  Matt ended up taking over the drums later.

It was past Christmas, but not quite new years when we recorded this.  The darkest days amid the lazy ones provided a good ethereal vibe to this session.

As noted in the title, this is only the first part of a two session night.  We were joined by other friends later.

New El Deth Release: urgency by COP – available 12.27.2011

That’s right.  Just beyond Christmas, El Deth will be unveiling its fifteenth release.

As the onesheet reads…

COP is a session project by Arrison Kirby (Never Sorry, Obadiah), Wesley Wyrick (DolphynRydyr, Star Mountain) and SK (The Glaring Sound).   

 Urgency was recorded at El Studio, Knoxville, TN in 2010 and subsequently edited, mixed and mastered by Arrison Kirby.  The name is a true reflection of the form; as this session was recorded in a single, very, very loud take.  By the second track, “Botched Operation,” the force of the sound was shaking beer bottles off the back of the studio’s piano.  Undeterred, the trio pressed on through these five movements of sound, their order on the disc being no different from the order recorded.

 This disc marks the fifteenth release from the El Deth recording label.  It will be digitally available on Spotify, iTunes  and all other major online distributors on December 27th, 2011.  The track, “Money Games” is currently available for free MP3 download at www.eldeth.com. 

And here is that track…

“Money Games” – COP

“Some Things Go Without Saying” – The Brian Jonestown Massacre
“We Were Growing” – Paul McCartney
“Panda Travels to the Arctic Circle” – American Panda
“No One Is (As I Are Be)” – Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks
“Without You” – Chicros with Brisa Roche
“”Heaven’s Light” – Air
“Someday We’ll be Together” – The Supremes
“I Will Follow Him” – Peggy March
“Not Giving One” – Blee
“Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” – Beastie Boys with Santigold
“The End of the World” – Skeeter Davis

Seems like a lot of stuff just kind of happens all at once.  That’s what this mix is about.

Watch it come impress upon your life, then see it somehow fondly out the door…if you can.

I made this mix midjump.  Didn’t make it to the other side yet, but hitting the ground was at least a different place from where I leaped.

 

Obadiah digital reissues!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That’s right, everyone. Obadiah’s last two, Obadiah EP and Rebirthday are now available on iTunes, Spotify and all your finer international digital retailers.

Why not download it through Japan?

These are the first two of several reissues coming down the line for El Deth.  Expect in the near future, reissues from Hamilton Ellis, the red cloud, and a specially remastered version of Obadiah’s FIRST album, Voda.  Stay tuned and tell all your friends!

 

“Cute Little Echo” – Never Sorry

This version of “Cute Little Echo” is from the immediately aforementioned Pilot Light Rehearsal session. The video was recorded the day after Moogfest 2011 in Asheville, North Carolina. Hence the clipping of the wrist bands, and also Tapeface, my carefully crafted Halloween costume.

I feel this video gives insight into Tapeface’s real life. Just because he has tape on his face, doesn’t mean he doesn’t practice good hygiene. It does apparently make him emotional, though.

“Blue”
“Laundry”

“The Finger Wag”
“Michael in the War”
“House of Satan”
“Dayman” (Charlie Day)

So this is our rehearsal session from our show on October 20th, at the Pilot Light in Knoxville, Tennsee, with Kishi Bashi.  This was recorded the evening before the show.  Obviously, we took a more minimal approach this time, slimming down to a trio for this recording.  As usual, that’s not quite how it went at the show, with the last minute addition of Megan Driscoll.  Kishi Bashi also joined us for the finale cover of “Dayman,” as made popular by the FX program, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, as well as an impromptu improvisational session at the end of the end.

On the recording, as during the live performance, “Dayman” bares a triumphant intro segment.  During the live set, we performed with a casket laid out in front of the stage.  At this point, the casket was opened, releasing helium filled balloons and light beams.  A happy end to an otherwise rather dark set.

Thank you for attending!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Pilot Light for Kishi Bashi and Never Sorry last Thursday.  I’m really really glad that new people were exposed to Kishi Bashi’s music.  And thanks for sticking around for Never Sorry, also.

If anyone has pictures or video they would like to share, holla at me.  You can check out some video of the Kishi Bashi set on Maurita Roman’s YouTube account.

There is a massive interchange of energy going on in America right now.  Why fight it?
