VIOLENCE Releases Human Dust to Fertilize the Impotent Garden

Seven months after the single release "The 16th Descent to Verdant Victory," experimental artist Olin Caprison unveils Human Dust to Fertilize the Impotent Garden—a collection of seven songs blending power dynamics, industrial sonics, and rap composition—as VIOLENCE on New York-based label Purple Tape Pedigree. Blatantly irreverent toward genre conventions, the album ebbs and flows with blast beats, power electronic bursts, and permutations of metal riffplay.

"This music is a struggle," describes the Baltimore-raised Caprison.

"It is a struggle from within this anti-history vacuum, a struggle against the all-embracing, multicultural, ahistorical ecosystem of contemporary music that renders all hierarchies impotent and null."

VIOLENCE performs live on October 5th in support of experimental composer Aïsha Devi’s debut Los Angeles appearance, along with a live ambient set by Los Angeles by-way-of-New-York producer Kelman Duran. Cop tickets here, and stream "Human Dust" off the album below.

StackStock brings music to the Oregon Coast

The Oregon Coast is a beautiful place, with an enjoyably somber air to it for majority of the year. Now that summer is coming to an end, there's one more opportunity to enjoy the coast at its brightest. 

In its inaugural year, StackStock Music Festival takes some of the most popular and pleasant artists coming out of the Pacific Northwest and stages them in Cannon Beach, backdropped by rolling ocean waves at the Haystack Gardens.

Coming from hospitality company owner Ryan Snyder, StackStock's sole purpose is to "bring rock to the town with the rock" and that, he's done well. In collaboration with Live Wire! Radio's Kate Sokoloff and local booker Alicia J. Rose, the trio nabbed some in town favorites like the choral pop of Ages and Ages, harmonic folk from duo Wonderly and some latin-influenced guitar sounds from the Edna Vazquez Acoustic Trio. A dream pop flare will come from Pure Bathing Culture along with some pretty rocking folk ballads from a solo headlining set from Colin Meloy, the lead singer of The Decemberists. An interactive pop set from the OK Chorale PDX will get the festival crowd going as well.

"The North Coast of Oregon is not really on the tour schedule for big name touring acts like Colin Meloy or Pure Bathing Culture," says Snyder. "STACKSTOCK is my way of sharing this incredibly unique music with the community here and our visitors alike."

Saturday's StackStock runs from 1-9pm. Advance sale tickets are $40 and $50 the day of. For directions, ticket purchasing and more information, head to www.STACKSTOCKFEST.com.

Psych rockers Birds talk about pedals on Delicious Audio

While the NYC scene seems to be crawling with psych bands, local rockers Birds tackle the genre in a way that sets them apart from the pack. Though the band is certainly taking cues from music of the past, their angular and distorted sliding guitars and bizarre vocal melodies suggest that they're digging through vinyl crates that have not been thoroughly picked through yet. With such a unique sound, we wanted to ask the band a bit about the driving forces surrounding it, and members Jess and Duane were nice enough to dig into to the stories surrounding their pedals for us. - Olivia Sisinni

A Deli Premiere: Oginalii's "7799"

When it comes to the Nashville-based sludge-pop four-piece Oginalii, slowing down is not an option. With forthcoming EP The Grey coming out on October 20th, their build-up of momentum has been nonstop, between coverage, concerts, and SXSW showcases —and their music is the same way. The female-fronted group, whose name translates to “my friend” in Cherokee, is making waves in the Nashville scene with their complex arrangements, unapologetic songwriting, and technical skill. In the track “7799” (streaming below), front-woman Emma Hoeflinger’s vocals are positively lethal, while the track impressively alternates between a 7/8 and 9/8 time signature. Oginalii will be hitting up The Cobra tomorrow (09.22) for a live show that will definitely hush any doubts about the state of the local Nashville scene. - Lilly Milman
