The Make-Up / Godspeed at ATP NY, 9/23/2012
The Make-Up
Godspeed You! Black Emperor

The festival's best music tried to knock you off your equilibrium. This happened most often on Sunday. The Psychic Paramount got levitating within a few minutes; Benjamin John Power, also known as the English one-man laptop-electronics project Blanck Mass, produced layers of drone, with twinkling rising tones inside of melodic cycles, at fantastic, physically massaging levels of volume; Thee Oh Sees, from San Francisco, played its revved, mutated, scurfed-out garage-rock, controlled and stretched at will by the singer, guitarist and bandleader John Dwyer, who has an intense relationship with his wide-range voice and his gear. (They're not getting rich, but a tighter rock band you will rarely see.) And Godspeed You! Black Emperor played its three-guitar, two-drummer, one-violin electric dirges for two hours -- repeating vamps, clobbering dynamics, in front of film loops of urban decay and antiwar demonstrations. It's powerful, until it's grandiose. - [NY Times]
