Recording: Doom Tickler

Artist: Doom Tickler

Song: unknown*

Recorded at CineCycle ("Blockspace II Presents: Pre-NYE Extravaganza"), December 30, 2014.

Doom Tickler - unknown

This night was a pre-NYE party assembled by the Blockspace collective (Laura Dobson, Julie Reich, Nick Leviathann) that transformed CineCycle into a DIY label bazaar and filled it with art installations plus a full slate of live music. It was also a release party for the Reich-compiled Offerings mixtape, the last gesture from the local showpaper before a soon-to-be-announced transformation.

Artist Leslie Predy's musical project has a sound that embodies both parts of its name. Using nothing but her voice and a loop pedal, Predy builds grunts, moans and screams into song-shapes, their inherent gruffness co-existing with a certain whimsical quality. In 2014, the recent prominence of Tanya Tagaq makes this seem like a reasonable path to pop, but it should be noted that Predy has been making music as Doom Tickler for several years now.
