L Magazine vs SUNN O)))

sonic brain sauna

I arrived in time to see Earth and Sunn O))). I am a long-time follower of both acts, and am perhaps biased in my fanatical review:

With a venue as grand as the Brooklyn Masonic Temple's massive hall, and an 8-foot-tall wall of fully restored vintage Sunn amps, there was no way I could have prepared myself for the sonic brain sauna that was last night.

Unlike any music venue in NYC, the Temple has absolutely no sound restrictions on its performers. That means that a band that h...

Limewire vs SUNN O)))

Sunn O))) at Brooklyn Masonic Temple, NYC 9/22/09

Countless shows spent standing around tables piled with miscellaneous electronics and pedals while some bearded dude bobs over them making disjointed noise has made me leary of seeing any band with even a tangential connection to anything that might be considered “experimental.” Sorry, but I have a short attention span and listen to punk rock, so if your performance isn’t trying, at least a little bit, to keep me interested, I won’t be. This ...

"Thanks to the Masons for letting us use their building" - Dylan Carlson, Earth

You should know the deal for these Southern Lord shows by now: oppressively loud doom metal riffs, guys in robes, limited edition posters, tote bags, slip mats, 180 gram vinyl, smoke machi...

Music Review | Sunn O)))
Two Bands, a Million Decibels
By BEN RATLIFF

The music of Sunn O))), despite the band’s typographical karate, despite its ability to seduce a large crowd into attending late-night shows of megaloud compositions with static guitar tones and Hungarian battle cries, despite its wall of mystery, is not higher math. It’s pre-math. It’s sniffing the air to get a weather forecast, watching the moon and tide to track your birthday. It’s banging rocks together a...

KTL Autumn 09 dates

Posted: Sep 16, 2009

Peter Rehberg and I are pleased to announce a trio of KTL concerts this November including a special live accompaniment of Körkarlen/The Phantom Carriage by Victor Sjöström at the Wien Modern festival. Furthermore, the Gisèle Vienne piece, Kindertotenlieder, will emerge 4 more times in 2009, which features KTL performing live . Don't miss out if you get the chance... probably the oddest and most unique performance I have had the pleasure of being part of to date.
