Mueran Humanos at Nothing Changes - 12/4/13 (via D.j. Jose)
England's industrial dark wave specialists Natural Assembly released a music video for their new song "When We Two Parted," and it's a good'un. A mix of post-WWI era footage of London, sped-up flowers blooming and concert footage presented in a silent film visual style make for a dark and ominous canvas over which the seriously dance-y, synthed-out track plays. Love those drowned, echoing vocals. "When We Two Parted" is the first song off of a forthcoming Natural Assembly release due out early next year. If there was a ever a band that should play Nothing Changes, Natural Assembly is it. Check out the video below.
Speaking of below-Delancey's dark/no/cold wave party of record, Nothing Changes marched into December last night with a performance by the Argentine-German synth-pop duo Mueran Humanos (pictured above), who are currently in town recording a follow-up to their 2010 self-titled at Heaven Street Records. Did you go? Good time?
Nothing Changes also just announced that Dominick Fernow of Prurient, Vatican Shadow and Hospital Productions fame will be DJing the previously discussed Clay Rendering (12/11) show which also has Christopher Hansell (Sacred Bones) and Ning Nong (Raspberry Bulbs) DJing. More just-announced Nothing Changes dates including shows by Dark Blue (12/18), STATIQBLOOM (1/15) (Fade Kainer of Batillus) with Søren (of Rosenkopf) and more. Updated schedule below.
In Batillus news, the Brooklyn doom bruisers just put out a cover of Ministry's "Lava" that will be on a forthcoming 7" with Kowloon Walled City, who contributed a cover of Godflesh's (touring soon) "Anthem" for their half. Both sides of the split are streaming below. Batillus' song "Concrete" was also just given a very creepy remix by Andy Stott (who they've played with), which you can hear at Pitchfork.
Check out the Natural Assembly vid, upcoming Nothing Changes lineups, and the Batillus/Kowloon walled City streams, below...

Wolf Eyes @ Saint Vitus, 7/6/2013
Antagonistic noise gang Wolf Eyes headlined a sold-out show at Saint Vitus on Saturday (7/6), joined by Hubble (Ben Greenberg, also of The Men), Foreplay (mem Warthog) and Soren (mem Rosenkopf) for a night of experimentalism and noise. Pictures from the show are in this post.
If you missed Saint Vitus, you can still get your Wolf Eyes fix by heading to Nothing Changes on Wednesday (July 10) when Nate Young (Wolf Eyes) hits Home Sweet Home for a late night appearance. The party will also host upcoming appearances from Bestial Mouths / Bootblacks on July 17th, La Urss / Sad Boys on July 24th and last but certainly not least, Lost Tribe / Anasazi on July 31st.

AFE; file under brutal promo shots, houseplants
You had better have some big cojones to name your band A Fucking Elephant. The technical/progressive two-piece (bass/drums) are prepping to release their classily-titled Seven Inches of A Fucking Elephant, a two song effort that demonstrates the band's prowess as an instrumental powerhouse. At times AFE sound like they've studied the jaw-dropping skills of their recording engineer Colin Marston (the 7" was laid to tape at his A Thousand Caves studio) while others give glimpses of latter Bastard Noise. Stream that release in full below for the first time, get your copy via Nefarious Industries, and see themon the road at the dates below -- including at Public Assembly on Jan 20 with Hannibal Montana, Noxious Foxes and Multitudes. Advance tickets are on sale.
Speaking of Colin Marston, the multi-instrumentalist will be at Saint Vitus on Saturday (1/5) as part of Dysrhythmia's appearance with Wreck & Reference, Soren and Planning for Burial. Tickets are still available.

Dysrhythmia @ Public Assembly
Dysrhythmia finished their round of dates in celebration of Test of Submission in Brooklyn at Public Assembly on Saturday (11/17). They were joined by a rare appearance from Loincloth (who we profiled here) and NYC's STATS and Rivers of Nihil. Though the latter band leans more toward the death metal end of things, the other three made it clear to see that the night was dedicated to math-y technical metal in different variations. Pictures from the show are in this post.
Dysrhythmia will join Wreck & Reference (profiled here and here), Soren (of Rosenkopf, who played his debut show at WIERD) and Planning for Burial on January 5th at Saint Vitus. The show is a rare appearance for Wreck & Reference, who are are visiting from their native Bay Area. Tickets are on sale.
More pictures from Public Assembly, though unfortunately none of Rivers of Nihil (who we missed), below...
Slug Guts, not Sisters of Mercy, @ Home Sweet Home, 10/17/2012
Post-punk maniacs Slug Guts joined headliner Cult of Youth with Soren (of Rosenkopf) for an appearance at the hazy, fog-dense basement of Home Sweet Home for the WIERD party last night (10/17), the first of three area appearances. Though Cult of Youth and Soren both ripped excellent sets, Slug Guts were mesmerizing in the tiny space, packing it to the gills.
If you missed the Australian band, make sure and catch them at either The Acheron on Friday (10/19) with Pop 1280 and Vaz or at the Life or Death showcase at 92Y Tribeca on Saturday (10/20).
More pictures from last night's WIERD are below.
