Some Noise!

Okay, so it's not really noise per se, but this is some pretty intense experimental stuff ... Shedding is the name of the Connor Bell brainchild, and boy is this some strange stuff.

The Louisville, Kentucky native's album, What God Doesn't Bless, You Won't Love; What You Don't Love, the Child Won't Know (quite the mouthful!), was just released on Hometapes (the spectacular folks who brought us Feathers, Slaraffenland, the Caribbean, Paul Duncan, and plenty of others), and I can't get enough of the three tracks.

It's strange, to not be able to get enough of this stuff. It's drone music with less structure (on the outside) than Boris; it's experimental tape loops galore, but where the hell do the loops start and stop?; it's the splinter and drift of melodic fragments and melodies.
"Listen to it loud," says Connor.
I agree.

So check this stuff out ... it may be a little too tough to handle on first go 'round, but keep at it ... I'm still eager to listen again and again, find more gems and nuggets beneath the surface ...
