Artist: New Positions
Recorded at Dundas Video (Track Could Bend #22), January 3, 2017.New Positions - [excerpt]
This noisy project from Neil Rankin and HSY's C. Jude has been gradually morphing for a couple years now. Last heard with doom-y drum-machine pulses and punishing volume, the project has shifted again with the addition of Bile Sister's Julie Reich as a third member. I suspect in a room with a bigger sound system this would rise more to the industrial thrum we've heard before, but for this set there was a sense of restraint that was really fascinating — we'll see how that's integrated when the band gets back to their volume-pummelling ways.
[Track Could Bend returns once more to Dundas Video on February 7th, with sets from Bachelard, Upanishads and organballoon.]
