npr.org: "When the members of what was to become Sonic Youth first began playing together in 1981, the critical and commercial success they would achieve was unimaginable. Though it began as more of an experiment in guitar noise and feedback than a rock band, Sonic Youth has cemented its legacy as one of the most important acts of its era, influencing countless performers both directly and indirectly."

NPR.org: "In rock 'n' roll, it's rare for a band's original members to stay together for nearly a quarter of a century. And most bands that do are simply cashing in on their past hits.

Sonic Youth is an exception to both rules. The New York art-noise band is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and its new recording, Rather Ripped, is one of the most straight-ahead rock albums the band has ever made." Listen here

hwylnofio.com: "hwyl nofio is an evolving ensemble based around its originator Steve Parry, who had previously worked with Matt Johnson of the the and Colin Potter of Nurse With Wound. “Steve Parry explores and exploits an ongoing collision between harmony and disharmony. Largely built around Parry’s abstract guitar patterns the music shifts between drone, embryonic melody and crackling elemental noise, replacing rock's normal linear dynamic with a series of fractured dialogues in which disfigured musical elements collide and merge with abstract blocks of sound” "

highpointlowlife.com: "Izu, known to his parents as Ronnie MacPherson, was brought up on the remote Hebridean island of South Uist, a galaxy away from the darkened clubs and smoggy streets of his current hometown Glasgow. The Izu sound can be traced through his early love of Black Dog, the Orb, FSOL and early 90s rave, filtered through more recent obsessions with Shadetek, Lusine, Dabrye and the burgeoning Glasgow electronic scene."

Very beautifull combination of acoustic and electronic sounds. One of the best artists I discovered in 2006.

The name a reverbaphone is a homemade instrument comprising of a reed mouthpiece connected to a long cardboard tube with a spring tensioned along the length, this is then recorded to a variablespeed tape recorder, the pitch can be altered during recording."

allmusic.com "First released in Australia and then in a slightly remastered version in the States, Psychic Secession finds the Yellow Swans further occupying the space between dark, glowering metal and hypnotic modern drone, aided and abetted by performers like Christina Carter and Adam Forkner. The core duo of Gabriel Mindel Saloman and Pete Swanson still leads the way, though, and that the album starts with a high-pitched feedback whine that rapidly increases in volume is as perfect a declaration of principles as any -- why cause tinnitus when the experience can be replicated on disc? Consisting of four lengthy tracks with either short, cryptic lyrics or none at all, Psychic Secession is well named, feeling like a disorienting divorce from a calmer state of mind, as tones mix and match in ways little heard outside of early Main albums."

forcedexposure.com: "A Life Without Fear occasionally strays into Maher Shalal or 21st century Red Krayola Blues, Hollers and Hellos turf, but wait -- Franz Hautzinger's at the door. Droning, guitar-picked porch blues blend with whiskey-soaked vocals, voodoo jazz, and throbbing electronics while low hums rub up against scraped strings and a buzzed-out harmonica heard through a tin-can. This is rough-hewn experimental bluestronica mixed with graveyard dirt." More
