Adoration Destroyed

With one eyeliner-stained eye looking back over a black-clad shoulder, harkening to the dark electronic music of the past, yet seductively mixed with bleeding-edge production drawn from modern EDM, and other electronic genres.

This project is an outlet for the ravaged, the lost and fucked-up souls.

Raw, visceral chronicles encased in a slick dichotomy of infectious Bass Music and Dark….

FIRES

Thirteen years. The time between beginning and an ending, and the return to the familiar ground of first pages being turned.

This is the ethos behind FIRES, new project from Eric Sochocki (Cryogen Second, Becoming The Devourer), which sees a return to his dance roots. However, this return is not to familiar territory, as FIRES does not opt for political warnings entrenched in post-apocalyptic imagery, as seen in Cryogen Second, or towards the esoteric and ephemeral, like Becoming the Devourer. Instead, FIRES is a direct reach inward and expressed in pop melodies, electronic rock, and nods to the retro-futurism of Synthwave.

FIRES began in August of 2016 and the first single (Counting Walls) was released in October of 2016, and quickly began circulating throughout the US industrial scene. A second single (To Be All Alone) was released a few weeks after. In early 2017, the band signed to Metropolis Records to release FIRES’ debut album, Red Goes Grey, in September of the same year. This album can trace its musical lineage directly to industrial acts like Imperative Reaction, Aesthetic Perfection, and Alter Der Ruine, while taking pieces from modern Synthwave producers like Carpenter Brut, S U R V I V E, and Vogel.

Xentrifuge

From NJ-NYC’s Underground Music Scene comes Xentrifuge, a brutal assault of Harsh Industrial/Aggrotech, constructed by the collectively innovative minds of Chris X and Lisa Hellen.

Xentrifuge brings a groundbreaking blend of Industrial-based sound, fused with noise, and a touch of heavy guitar work.

KANGA

Producer, songwriter, composer, KANGA wields the power of objectification in a hyper surreal world of techno-industrial landscapes and manipulative pop hooks (Source: KANGA Bandcamp)

We’re extremely excited for this show! KANGA is flying in special just for us! She is an incredibly energetic live performer and a number of you have been asking us to bring her to Minneapolis. She has been making a lot of waves in the past year, including a recommendation from Gary Numan as well as performances at Terminus Festival and Cold Waves!

a place both wonderful and strange

The sound of a place both wonderful and strange is that of a heady paganistic fever dream that keeps the waking world slightly at bay, a warm and heavy hand across your eyes. It is the sound of sleep paralysis, a darkness shaking and ravaging your psyche with unease, mystery and wonder. However, it’s not just about what you can hear. Often, if you’re hearing it, it’s too late.

a place both wonderful and strange exists in a world hyper-influenced by the occult, David Lynch and Janet Jackson, damaged by witch house and pop culture in equal measures.

Birthed of night and fire, Brooklyn-based Russ Marshalek’s brain child of smeary electronics and sharpened emotions takes on its newest form, as an electronic trio of power (NOT “power electronics”). Augmenting the line-up in a Voltron-esque way are Shanda Woods, formerly of We Are The Wilderness and now solo under the guise of OKTI as a member of the Hathor Collective, and Laura Hajek, who also performs as indie-pop terrorist Edith Pop.

In 2016 a place both wonderful and strange released their second album, The Laura Palmer Deviations. “The Laura Palmer Deviations” is the soundtrack to their critically-acclaimed Lynch Foundation performance “Keys Open Doors: The Hidden Life of Laura Palmer”, which recently played in Atlanta to mass praise. Their 3rd album, “What I Speak I Create”, is out in 2017 on Sony Music/The Orchard.

Combining to create a magick concoction of sounds, videos, DJ mixes and live performances that have bewitched the imagination in unique weird ways, a friend has described their style as “making music with teeth”. They have played extensively in New York City at music venues and art establishments up and down the east coast, notably capturing the interest of the David Lynch Foundation. Currently they are working on several film soundtrack collaborations and New Jack Witch, a surreal full-length concept album and short film (the title track from which was debuted on Mishka in November of 2014).

As a place both wonderful and strange’s musical identity whispers to a mystery befitting the name. The whispers grow louder until they are a scream meant to wake one from their fevered dream. Watch and listen, but don’t wake up.
