RFP MIA?

So yes! I disappeared.

I graduated from journalism school(!?)... moved out of Halifax(!)... and started a new free newspaper in St. John's(!!!)

So to all you experimental electronic fiends who've been jonesin' without me, I invite you to check out the links list to the right.

And if you're interested in checking out the new paper, we have a website, of course.

Godspeed you!

Boy Makes Music -
Oak Island EP



"Mid-19th century newspaper stories recount that in 1795, young Donald Daniel McInnis discovered a circular depression on the south eastern end of the island with an adjacent tree which had a tackle block on one of its overhanging branches. McInnis, with the help of friends John Smith and Anthony Vaughan, excavated the depression and discovered a layer of flagstones a few feet below. On the pit walls there were visible markings from a pick. As they dug down they discovered layers of logs at about every ten feet (3 m). They abandoned the excavation at 30 feet (10 m)." - Wikipedia entry for Oak Island.



Here is a lovely pair of ambient tracks from Sackville Nova Scotia's Boy Makes Music. Here he has made a 24 minute soundtrack to Oak Island, a tiny island on the south shore of the province.

This music may not make you think of treasure, but it will definitely make you think of something valuable, long-lost.

Alexandre Bilodeau - Bonze Deluxe EP



Finally!! A Polygon Network release from Moncton's Alexandre Bilodeau.

Bilodeau -- quirky techno superstar -- leads a relentless attack on Atlantic Canada yet again with this fabulous Bonze Deluxe EP... The meaning of which I am not quite certain. Maybe he should say what it means.

Anyway. The EP has five rock-solid tracks that will definitely get your head nodding, if not your booty shaking.

...

I just checked "BONZE" in the dictionary, and apparently it means a buddhist monk.

So I guess that means that if you don't dig this EP, be prepared or Bilodeau is going to come to your house and get all buddhist on your ass. Watch out.

Here are two of my faves from the release:
polygon028_02.Alexandre_Bilodeau_-_Anisado.mp3
polygon028_04.Alexandre_Bilodeau_-_La_prohebition.mp3

Visit the release page for the rest.

65 Days of Static


65 Days of Static, from Sheffield, England.

Post-math metal drill rock and bass?

I don't claim to be the first person to talk about these guys, but I'm surprised I haven't heard much of them before now.

I noticed on the Warp site they were touring with Chris Clark, one of the label's army of electronic music jedi, so I decided to check them out.

Turns out they're a gripping, glitchy, guitar-driven band who can build or destroy walls of noise at their whim.
