Brooklyn's Diamond Terrifier gave us this chilled-out remix for his new blending of saxophone and guitar pedals on tape called Shrine Flu and being released on Words + Dreams. I know I said saxophone, but this is not anything like you'd expect that instrument to sound; it's been mellowed and rounded into something more akin to a whale call or a much larger, smoother horn, with incredible density and a lot of simple beauty. In the remix by UUMANS, which is a current name Matt from Skeletons is using, these tones are given a set of twitch beats to operate under, filling out and breathing into something that might be considered cold, empty, and robotic without the addition of Terrifier's woodwind warmth.
The release show for the cassette is going on tonight at 285 Kent and has a really wonderful line up, including Oneohtrix Point Never, who might never play an opening spot in a DIY venue again. Touch Here to Resume and La Big Vic also play, along with DJs Chris Devlin and Ghostdad. Should be a chilled out event, especially valuable to those of us steeling ourselves for the SXSW onslaught. Also, Diamond Terrifier is hosting a great night at Zebulon called PRACTICE!, which has been having a lot of wonderful guest musicians. Looking forward to Nonhorse collaboration on the 20th and Noveller on the 27th. You can check out the full listings here.
