Song Of The Day: Shellac – Wingwalker

These tracks were recorded at a variety of live benefit shows around Louisville, KY for our dear friend Jason Noble who passed away August 4, 2012 after a 3 year battle with cancer.
Brian and Jason spent countless hours on phones and porches talking about the compilation. Proceeds were to benefit his on-going battle and help ease the financial burdens that accompanied. After his passing, it became a matter of putting out the music as a piece of art he had worked on and the world deserved to hear. The desire to make a physical product has remained strong but financially prohibitive so digital versions are being released with digital versions of the artwork and layouts as close to what had been envisioned as can be achieved through digital means.
The artists (musical and visual) that contributed to this project did so out of love for Jason. We were all inspired by and continue to be influenced by the man that he was and the spirit that lives on through his art, music, film, and memories embedded in all those touched by him along the years.
What was intended as a 2 disc CD set has been broken into 4 parts to showcase each of 4 interchangeable covers we had envisioned in the packaging. Furthermore, being released as digital (avoiding the cost of physical production) and “name your price”, the proceeds from this (if any) will be put back into the Louisville music community in some as of yet undetermined way.
LOVE ALWAYS WINS.

Bitch Magnet (avere vent’anni)

E magari chi ha vent’anni, nel 2009, lo incontriamo a qualche bel concerto post/hardcore/rock/math. Felice (come noi, si intende) e preso. Eppure quando il ragazzo aveva il ruolo di neonato c’era già tutto, o quasi. Anzi, volendo dirla tutta, c’era pure prima. Tuttavia il 1989 un suo significato particolare lo ha, almeno per chi da certa musica è dipeso. Perchè alla fine della fiera Slint, Rodan, For Carnation, June Of 44, Don Caballero, Gastr Del Sol e Shellac li abbiamo amati (in quanto vissuti più o meno concretamente), ma lo scatto decisivo (per comprensione, attitudine ed atteggiamento) è difficile non riferirlo ai Bitch Magnet, definitivi nel rendere concreta la visione di “Skag Heaven” degli Squirrel Bait (ossia quelli che c’erano prima).
Il punto di congiunzione, lo sanno anche i muri, è Mr. David Grubbs, aggiuntosi dopo l’Ep “Star Booty” (Roman Candle, 1988) a Sooyoung Park, Jon Fine e Orestes Delatorre (studenti dell’Oberlin College in Ohio). Il substrato era prevedibile: hardcore e retaggi alla Big Black, necessari ieri come oggi. A fare la differenza sono, però, le addizioni (con sottrazioni annesse): straniamenti sonici, noise intollerante, nichilismo ormai esplicito, destrutturazioni implosive e matematica intellettuale. Rallentando, con convinzione e senza remore, una violenza ricercata. Non rinnegata, quindi, quanto trattenuta e algebrica nella costante rumorista. Ed allora “Umber” (Communion, 1989 se non lo si fosse capito) gira come una trottola impazzita nel toccare ogni angolo delle future espressioni: da “Motor“, accessibilità per estremismi alla Husker Du, a “Navajo Ace“, lancinante gioventù sonica in salsa punk, dalla sospensione nera in “Douglas Leader” a quella albiniana (per indolenza rabbiosa) di “Goat-Legged Country God“, dalla contrapposizione apatia/fulminiesaette con “Big Pining” al noise d’eccellenza in “Punch And Judy“. Poi il clamore arriva per le pre-slintianeClay” e, soprattutto, “Americruiser“, anticipo chiaro di reiterazioni recitate e rottura palese con il passato.
Un percorso logico nelle controversie. All’epoca, forse, solo intuite, come gli ultimi sentori di un disco decisivo per importanza storica ed attuale per sostanza. Era il 1989, non è il 2009.

All Tomorrow’s Parties

Visto che siamo appena rientrati dall’ATP 2009 (Shellac, Tiersen e Dianogah su tutti, qui una sintesi dettagliata), pare opportuno ricordare l’appuntamento del 24 Giugno all’Edinburgh International Film Festival. Sarà, infatti, l’occasione per assistere alla premiere di un film sul festival da noi tanto amato. Tra le (numerosissime) esibizioni sulla pellicola quelle di Mogwai, Slint, Battles, Sonic Youth, Dirty Three e Grinderman. In più, per chi mai avesse assisistito ad un’edizione dell’All Tomorrow’s Parties, la possibilità di vedere come si trasforma un villaggio vacanze in location per concerti.
