  Well.... after a long hiatus, there is actually news to report from the Parasomnic camp!  The debut release from The Devouring Element, "Subterranean Hymns", is finally done!  It's been mastered and will soon be ready for public consumption.  Not sure whether we'll actually make "real" CDs with packaging, but we will definitely be making download-able versions available for purchase.  Watch for more info coming soon.  In the meantime, check out six of the nine songs here!

New Hollydrift EP! 
  parasomnic
 
08:59am 21/11/2006
  Hollydrift has a new self-released limited edition EP entitled, "Tochter."  It is available for free -- all you have to do is write Mathias a personal letter!  Find out all the details, and watch a video of one of the tracks on "Tochter" here:

http://www.hollydrift.com/tochterep.html

Here's a brief description of the EP, courtesy of www.hollydrift.com:

"The music on Tochter is slightly different than you have come to expect from Hollydrift.  While the music contains the same type of overdriven sound present in the music of Hollydrift since early 2003, it offers more melodic forays into the static.  A field recording of an American pioneer era textile machine, old synthesizers and even a drum machine make an appearance on Tochter... You will find a noisy simplicity on Tochter that is conducive to a more relaxed experience without the clutter of concentrated listening..."

Do yourself a huge favor and check out this new release from one of the most impressive and intriguing experimental soundscapers currently creating audio art.  Thanks.

  Hey, check out this great profile on Hollydrift at www.igloomag.com. The interview with Mathias is great, and very thought-provoking. When you're done reading the profile, turn off your computer, go outside, close your eyes and listen to your world. You'll be surprised at what you hear...

  A quick reminder, cross-posted all over the damn place!

anaphylaxis will be playing two shows during the last week of May. Hopefully some of you can make it to one of them. Or both, in which case I would have to provide you with some kind of exotic prize. I didn't mean that like it sounds. Maybe.

Sunday, 28 May 2006: Fireside Bowl with rugMouth (experimental metal duo from Columbus, OH) and Mayor Daley (weirdo sludge metal from Chicago). Show starts at 9:00 p.m., $5, 21+. Fireside is at 2646 W. Fullerton in Chicago.

Wednesday, 31 May 2006: Elbo Room with Firelight Rising (lush, ambient electronic pop from Chicago) and 0+1=Everything ("Abstract post hip-hop downtempo I.D.M. melodic avant poptronica" from Chicago) with video by DJ Shutter. Show starts at 9:00 p.m., 21+, price TBA (check the anaphylaxis Myspace page for updates). Elbo Room is at 2871 N. Lincoln Ave in Chicago.

If you're looking for other good stuff to do in Chicago, head over to Calm Booking and the Chicago Punk Shows Collective to see what's coming up. They both have great schedules of upcoming shows, you should never lack for live music again!

this delicate confusion. 
  kava
 
10:56pm 11/05/2006
  i started writing and producing this record nearly a year ago. ironically 2 other full albums came out of the studio sessions (the otsu.vihara release and 'sleep for now'). i had originally titled the album 'litany', but i abandoned the original concept of combining trance with Orthodox liturgical music. in fact there's not a shred of what i had originally conceptualized almost a year ago. so the title no longer seemed fitting. so a few days ago i was thinking about the experiences that provoked me into writing and recording the music for this album. i've been through many hills and valleys. my grandfather passing away a few months ago, to the depression that followed, to a rekindled spirituality, and finally a continued search for answers in a world that makes little sense.



this delicate confusion was what came to mind. the record is completed and wrapping for release at the end of this month. i'm very pleased with the results and i'm actually confident this time around that it will garner a positive response from those that hear it. it's more dark and solemn than usual and i didn't feel the need to express much in the way of aggression (or utter weirdness) like i did on 'excursions on a hovercraft'. i hate comparing, but the music most closely aligns to the bands/artists on the n5MD label. there's no mimicry, just a slight comparison. perhaps we have similar influences?

i would really, sincerely appreciate any one that reads this to take a moment and listen to the music i've made public at http://myspace.com/mayfairgrin and share with me their reaction, criticism, etc.. it would mean a lot ot me. i made a few of the songs downloadable for a little while too.

'this delicate confusion track-listing:
1. litany
2. sleep for now {twilight remix}
3. delicate {extended album edit}
4. black mountain machine {remix}
5. sagrada
6. morianna revisited
7. asterix {by jules: mfg remix}
8. kirlian sunshine {parts 1 - 3}
9. leise nacht

...that's exactly 80 minutes of music. i know, it's ridiculously long.

PLAGUE BRINGER
anaphylaxis
Bloodyminded
Wilt
CarpetofSexy

From Jason: "Doors at 8:00, cost is $7. This is an AMAZING lineup. Please try to be there, it's going to be INSANE! We're planning some crazy stuff and we need as many people there as possible for various reasons. Including vanity, I imagine. This is a 21 and over show, sorry. If you can only make one anaphylaxis show in April, it should be this one, for various reasons, including the fact that it's the only one in April."

Upcoming Shows:

27 May 2006: anaphylaxis will be playing Big Car Gallery in Indianapolis, IN, with Taught Me (from Salt Lake City, Utah), Hotel Brotherhood (from Chicago) and Shiny Black Shirt (Indianapolis). I believe this show will start at 8:00 p.m., not sure on admission just yet but this one is an all-ages show.

28 May 2006: Back in Chicago, anaphylaxis will be playing with rugMouth (Columbus, OH) and Mayor Daley (Chicago, IL) on May 28th at the Fireside Bowl (2646 W. Fullerton)! $5 admission, show starts at 9:00 p.m., 21 and over only, sorry!

anaphylaxis upcoming shows: Chicago and Indianapolis 
  japanesecandy
 
12:17am 11/04/2006
  Cross-posted like crazy, with apologies and a cut.

The next anaphylaxis show is coming up two weeks from tonight on 24 April 2006 at the Nite Cap Lounge, 5007 W. Irving Park in Chicago. We're planning some crazy stuff and we need as many people there as possible for various reasons. Including vanity, I imagine. This is a 21 and over show, sorry. We're playing with Bloodyminded, Wilt, Locrian, and perhaps one more yet to be determined. Cover will probably be around $6-$8. If you can only make one anaphylaxis show in April, it should be this one. Again, for various reasons. Including the fact that it's the only one in April.

Indianapolis & Chicago 'tour' at the end of May:Collapse )
