Format: LP
Label: Wolf Eyes
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"A rich tapestry of wires and pedals inextricably link Wolf Eyes Young, Dilloway and Olson, and their respective towers of homemade electronics, guitars, horns, gongs, etc. It all has fused into a single, monolithic machine-entity. Wires even slither up into their mouths for sonic purposes. It is an over-amplification of the humming spinal cord and the chatter of a billion cells sharing information. This machine-entity that Young, Dilloway and Olson have brought to life sprouts limbs and runs roughshod across America. This is the vinyl release of their new full-length CD for Sub Pop, Burned Mind. Wolf Eyes trademark boil-bursting thud has evolved into the roar of a lithe panther with rattling jackhammers for claws. Agility and quickness are now this beast?s most lethal attributes. Placed on the evolutionary charts, Burned Mind appears as the progeny of Throbbing Gristles Heathen Earth sound model. The complexity of muscularity and emotional range found in this Wolf Eyes release has rendered its apparent ancestry slow, clumsy and rather limited in comparison. Fuck, man, cite all the top-shelf noise and power electronics bands until you?re blue in the face Whitehouse, New Blockaders, Nurse with Wound, whatever.. but none possess the internal being of Wolf Eyes. The former were performance artists flirting with the dire circumstances of the human condition in the abstract. Wolf Eyes just ARE the dire circumstances of the modern human condition. Ever watch a movie about the future and the future is so oppressively grim, violent, foreign and insipid, that even a romance with nihilism seems way too quaint and inappropriate of a response? And then you realize we live in drastic fucking times, and Burned Mind is drastic fucking music." -Justin F. Farrar  Burned Mind was recorded from October 2003 through June 2004 primarily by the band themselves. Bill Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins recorded parts at Key Club in Benton Harbor, MI. Mixing help came from Brendan M. Gillen.
