Mass Gothic talk about gear on Delicious Audio

Noel Heroux and Jessica Zambri, active in the NYC scene since the mid aughts, released music separately through Hooray for Earth (Noel's first breakout project, disbanded in 2014) and Zambri (the electronic band Jessica still plays in with sister Cristi Jo) and became the two creative forces behind Mass Gothic. The two musicians share an interest for dark atmospheres and edgy arrangements. They found themselves involved in a romantic relationship that soon developed in an involved artistic collaboration, which fully bloomed in Mass Gothic's sophomore album, entitled "I've Tortured You Long Enough," released earlier this year through Sub Pop records. Our sister blog Delicious Audio asked Noel to share some thoughts about the creative experience and the gear behind it, read his answers here. - Photo by Sammy Goldfien

Tempers finds an audience in Europe + releases concept LP about consumerism

A Brooklyn band that was born to be appreciated in the triangle of land enclosed between Manchester, Milan and Berlin, Tempers has been slowly finding recognition... exactly there. Proponents of a brand of coldwave (aka synth-post-punk) that most Americans will find unnecessarily depressing, the duo has released an excellent debut album in 2015 that - like all good records - has not stopped conquering hearts just yet (it's called "Services"). After spending four years touring and promoting that release, the duo has finally come out with their sophomore full length, which takes their lugubrious electronic music to new levels of abstraction and intellectual exploration. Presented as "a concept album about the architecture of consumerism," the record features conversations with iconic dutch architect Rem Koolhaas and a more explorative sound that's less influenced by the canons of the electronic new wave of the '80s. Check out the video for single "Love at the Mall."

Chrissy Martin "Body Puzzles"

Chrissy Martin has released a new piece called “Body Puzzles” via the Michigan label 1473. This is a part of a larger project she is calling “Sound Moves” which explores the relationship between movement and sound, voice and body.

The audio was recorded live during the performance that you can watch below.

Kevin Czaja “Past, Present, Future”

Kevin Czaja has released a second composition, “Past, Present, Future”, from his forthcoming album. This is cinematic classical music that allows you to close your eyes and imagine the epic battle scenes and aerial shots this music was meant to accompany.

This is a far departure from the instrumental metal sounds of his rock duo Mad Martyr.

Thelma step things up with new single + plays Trans-Pecos on 12.20

One of the most difficult tasks for a musical artist is to develop her project's sound after a first, well-received album. Being diagnosed with thyroid cancer and a genetic joint disorder called Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, conditions that affect vocals and instrumental ability, certainly doesn't make the challenge any easier. None of this prevented Brooklyn songwriter Thelma (aka Natasha Jacobs) from taking her music to the next level in less than two years. Her 2017 self titled debut LP was a collection of heartfelt and somewhat odd orchestral ballads. From the sound of the first single from sophomore LP "The Only Thing," Jacobs is upping the ante of her songwriting by amplifying the oddness and intensity of her chord progressions, lyrics, melodies and arrangements. A sparse and imaginative mid-tempo featuring acoustic drums, synths and harp, Take me to Orlando" is an ode to illusions, a poem dedicated to a yet-to-be-met lover to whom Thelma sings: "I love how you play with illusion / cause you know how badly we need them / But honey you’re so real / and you dance around fear [...] and you don’t make me feel like I’m the woman I am not." Which sounds like a cleared-sighted expression of the healing power of art-making.

Don't miss Thelma's live show at Trans-Pecos on December 20th and look out for her new album, scheduled for a February 22 release.
