Posted in music | tour dates on April 4, 2014


Experimental musician Jason Lescalleet released the impressive Big Black-referencing album Songs About Nothing back in 2012, and he's following it with a new album, Much to My Demise, this year via Kye Records. A description reads:

Recorded and constructed solely with analog sources, 'Much To My Demise' showcases the result of a three month process in which pre-recorded reels of tape were transported outdoors, buried in soil and encouraged to corrode. The reels were then excavated, and their resultant signals transferred and edited to form an apparitional triptych of faded gesture and mood.
You can listen to a 7+ minute excerpt of one of its tracks, "The Tragedy of Man," below.

Jason also has some dates coming up this month, including a NYC show happening on April 18 at Issue Project Room. For that show, Jason will be presenting a series of films he's curated, featuring videos by Aaron Dilloway, C Spencer Yeh, Adel Souto and others. No advance tickets, they'll be available at Anthology's box office, which opens 30 minutes prior to the show. The list of all tour dates and more info on the IPR show below.

In related news, Issue Project Room is also where Circuit des Yeux (who toured with Jason last year) plays in June.
