PURPURA - The world is gonna end, you know (Placenta Recordings #366 - 2016)

PURPURA - The world is gonna end, you know (Placenta Recordings #366 - 2016)





PURPURA is the solo harsh-noise project of Andrea Nucamendi, originally from Chiapas, Mexico, formed in 2014 and located in Geneva Switzerland.
  
Obscure figure of the underground scene in Geneva, PURPURA has been playing and producing atmospheres inspired by visions of the underworld. Invading the venues with sonic aggression she pursuits an old-school-like noise show experience on the today's scene.  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
The world is gonna end is an EP with the track IXTAB (name of the goddess for the suicides in the Mayan culture)
   
-Each of my shows and recordings are unique. For my sets I create paths with the elements that I like (feedback loops, distortions, distortions, recordings, distortions, reverb, distortions, distortions, sound generators, delays, something else and distortions) to make a zone where I can improvise during the live act. 
  
I’m not trying to do something new, but to be the truest with my feelings when expressing with the machines. PURPURA is a way to express my feelings living in this society, in this world now.  When I play I don’t have the full control of the sounds emerging; harsh-noise reminds me of life, it’s chaos that I have to deal with, and I find it anyways painfully beautiful.   

Noise music is crucial in my life, it’s a need, and it keeps me calm. I do it with this motivation, and I don’t care about what is being said that noise is dead ‘cause for me it is very alive. Those bored old guys can say whatever they want but for me I need to experience its extreme sensation. I like it and I need it now, in this future time. I would agree with Steven Parrino to why not convert into necrophilia then.  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
As a side project I make drawings under the name of Chaotic Behaviors. Drawing for me is a cosmic portal where I can communicate with the deepest and simpler part of myself.   
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You can hear PURPURA sounds and see Chaotic Behaviors drawings here ->

WATER RATS:

Hometown: Curitiba.PR | São Paulo.SP | Mariscal.SC -  BRAZIL

Members: Alex Capilé (Guitar, Vocal) - Pedro Gripe (Guitar, Vocal) - Bi Coveiro (Bass) - Renê Bernuncia (Drums)


Here is a clip from NOISEY / VICE BRASIL:

"Depois de toda a saga de gravar com o Jack Endino, trombar o Thurston Moore no estúdio durante as sessões da Converse Rubber Tracks, pegar vários toques preciosos desses dois feras e tudo mais, finalmente podemos sacar o resultado da estada do Water Rats em Seattle. Quem acompanha o Noisey já teve uma palhinha do processo em primeira mão, quando lançamos o single/clipe de "Hellway to High", meses atrás. Agora é a vez de conhecer as outras cinco músicas até então inéditas. A pegada da banda continua a mesma, trafegando entre o punk sujão, o garage e o rock alternativo.

“Porém acredito que agora, neste lançamento, estamos descobrindo melhor a nossa personalidade, algo que só se ganha com tempo e estrada”, comenta o guitarrista e vocalista Alexandre Capilé. “Felizmente a gente tem tido muito disso e a intensidade que a banda tomou nas nossas vidas está estampada nesse EP, que foi gravado no olho do furacão da tour do Ugly By Nature.” Nessas, a “Hellway to High” acaba sendo a faixa que mais destoa do resto do disco, já que ela é um pouco mais rocker do que as outras. No geral, o trabalho saiu marcado por sons rápidos e diretos. Entre eles, “Rat Trap” é outro som que exibe personalidade singular, tanto que deverá ser o próximo single.

O clipe de "Worms", que lançamos aqui junto com o streaming do EP, tem uma proposta sem grandes extravagâncias, mas transmite energia e conta com uma fotografia muito daora de assistir. Me lembrou aquele clipe do Guns, em que a câmera fica bem na cara do Axl, com os integrantes agitando ao fundo. “Já é meu clipe preferido do Water Rats”, festeja o frontman. Toda o conceito veio do diretor Cléver Cardoso, da Granada Filmes, o mesmo responsável por vários outros clipes irados como “Dino Vs. Dino”, do Far From Alasca e “Hurricane”, do Hellbenders.

Capilé conta como a parceria se desenrolou: “Fazia tempo que estávamos planejando gravar algo juntos. Um dia ele me ligou dizendo que tinha uma diária num estúdio foda e quis saber se a gente topava gravar um clipe no dia seguinte. Topamos, e o resultado foi esse.” A direção de fotografia vem assinada pelo Pedro Marguerito, outro grande amigo e parceiro do grupo. O clipe foi todo filmado com a música em andamento mais lento, reduzido à metade do tempo. Por isso que, quando assistimos, os movimentos parecem tão mais frenéticos. “Nós quatro trocamos quatro vezes de posição pra dar o efeito rotatório”, detalha.

O lançamento do EP no Brasil tem o aval da Hearts Bleed Blue e da Läjä Records, e, nos Estados Unidos, da Placenta Recordings. A Placenta é um selo pequeno de Detroit, porém com um trabalho responsa e um catálogo de mais de 360 plays. “Não conhecemos os caras do selo pessoalmente, mas já conversamos muito pela internet. Com certeza eles vão nos dar uma impulsionada por lá”, acredita Capilé. O espírito das novas composições traduz bem o estilo de vida dos caras, que conduzem a sua rotina sob o lema “Forever Vacation”.

Alexandre Capilé brinca com isso, dizendo que “estamos aproveitando nossas férias da vida ao máximo, fazendo nossos sons sem pretensão, misturando tudo o que a gente gosta, mantendo nosso conceito inicial e, principalmente, nos divertindo muito. Além de tocar juntos, somos quatro grandes amigos viajando pelo mundo afora em busca de diversão. Nossas letras falam do que acontece com a gente, às vezes mais sérias, às vezes criticando o mundo, for fun outrora... Não temos um tema especifico, tudo depende do que a vida nos dá. Adoraria estar mais psicodélico e espiritual, por exemplo [risos].”

Os shows intensos e rápidos têm atraído bastante público para o Water Rats, por isso o novo EP chega em bom momento. No período de um ano, a página do quarteto no Facebook cresceu de 700 seguidores para quase cinco mil. O mesmo vale para o perfil no Instagram. No Brasil, o maior público está em lugares como Goiânia, Natal, na região nordeste em geral e no sul. Lá fora, Los Angeles abraçou a banda, que fez um show apinhado no Viper Room, com citações elogiosas da casa nas redes sociais e a presença do Greg Hetson (Circle Jerks / Bad Religion) apadrinhando os músicos. “E isso tudo naturalmente, sem forçar a barra ou ficar no desespero correndo atrás do ouro”, Capilé faz questão de frisar. Insano."

History:

Noise was always something I wanted to get into, but only during junior year of high school did I really start to do anything with my ideas. I first started with field recordings, finding whatever I could around my house to record and load into audacity to mess with. At first I had no clue what I was doing, just experimenting with the effects until it got somewhat close to what I wanted it to sound like. It took a lot of messing around with various functions and effects until finally I got the hang of it, creating more complex sounds til I found a niche that started to stick, making my tracks very dark and haunting sounding.

Big Michigan Noise Compilation (Placenta Recordings #360 - 2016)



"Having grown up and lived in various cities and towns in the state of Michigan, I can honestly say it is one of the most fucked up states in the country...facing every issue imaginable, it reflects in the Noise music that comes from deep down in the pit of the souls of Michigan residents. This compilation shows appreciation for all of the oddball musicians and artists in Michigan who will never be booked back to the local watering hole ever again...This is for the outsiders who will never have their album available at FYE, and would never want it to be. This is for the girls/guys still running DIY spaces for us to play at, for the cats pressing 250 copies on vinyl for the sole fact they believe in the music, for the dudes dubbing tapes for the cassette label, the people cutting up tiny pieces of text and art making fliers and album covers...the people who make Noise possible in Michigan, defying odds and saying FUCK YOU to top 40 bullshit music and corporate influence on how you should live life...This music is not pretty, it's not for the faint of heart, and it's probably not for YOU." - Jay Watson (Placenta Recordings/Dental Work) 

Organized by Jay Watson and Sean Barry 2015-2016. Released by Placenta Recordings 2016. Special thanks to Lob (Thee Instagon Foundation) who asked PR to handle the Michigan chapter of this series inspired by Hal McGee's "Big Florida Noise Compilation". Thank you to all of the artists who made this album possible!

This compilation was inspired by the BIG FLORIDA NOISE COMPILATION that was organized by Hal McGee. 
..this inspired an even larger undertaking.. to attempt to generate noise compilations from EVERY state.. and the ONE NATION UNDER NOISE project was born (www.tif.org/ONUN.html) - Also check out Big California Noise Compilation: 

"Noise music is a type of music that employs noise as a musical resource. It is generally created with nontraditional musical instruments such as static, feedback, electronics, circuit bent instruments, or any other noise source." - Google 

"Noise music is a category of music that is characterized by the expressive use of noise within a musical context. This type of music tends to challenge the distinction that is made in conventional musical practices between musical and non-musical sound.[1] Noise music includes a wide range of musical styles and sound-based creative practices that feature noise as a primary aspect. It can feature acoustically or electronically generated noise, and both traditional and unconventional musical instruments. It may incorporate live machine sounds, non-musical vocal techniques, physically manipulated audio media, processed sound recordings, field recording, computer-generated noise, stochastic process, and other randomly produced electronic signals such as distortion, feedback, static, hiss and hum. There may also be emphasis on high volume levels and lengthy, continuous pieces." - Wikipedia 

"Luigi Russolo, a Futurist artist of the very early 20th century, was perhaps the first noise artist." - The Art Of Noises

These artists were mentored by a list of surprise guests, including Marky Ramone and Mark Ronson. Watch the trailer for the entire documentary series below.

So, here’s how this worked: Converse Rubber Tracks chose 84 international up-and-coming musicians from over six continents out of 9,000 applicants to record original music in world famous studios alongside a team of experienced producers and sound engineers during one to two day sessions free of cost. Plus, the musicians retained the rights to their music after the fact.

Then, out of those 84 acts, four were chosen to star in their own documentary, recording their journey from hometown to recording session. Converse Rubber Tracks is now releasing these documentaries over the next two months.

The documentaries, presented by Noisey and produced by Pulse Films, will feature the following acts. First, Forever Vacation spotlights Brazilian alt-rock band Water Rats with special guests Thurston Moore and Jack Endino at Avast Recording Co. in Seattle, WA and releases Feb. 24. Second, The Undergraduate spotlights a Providence-based rapper/musician DAP with special guests Mark Ronson and Ken Scott at Abbey Road Studios in London, England and releases March 2. Third, 4,700 Miles spotlights British indie rock quartet the Magic Gang with special guests Sly And Robbie at Tuff Kong in Kingston, Jamaica and releases March 9. Lastly, A Band Of Five spotlights Chinese punk rock group Pumpkins with special guest Marky Ramone at Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin, Germany and releases March 16."

GRAY/BLISS - SELECT.OPTION out now on Placenta Recordings!!!

GRAY/BLISS - SELECT.OPTION (out now on Placenta Recordings)



GrayBliss Music Original music by Nicholas Sapounas 

Grayblissmusic@gmail.com 680 W. Forest Ave. Detroit MI 48201

“People Say What They Want to Hear (People Hear What They Want to Say) “

I depend on , You Depend on everyone That tries to make amend and then Around it goes and it never ends It never ends I may not know or may not want To really hear or think about What others say and really mean But times like these, after Thought and time, laughter I realize with open eyes People Say what they want to Hear People Hear what they want to Say People Say what they want to Hear People Hear what they want to Say

Notes on the DEMO Select/Option 

The Demo is called Select/Option because when I was 16 I dislocated my wrist (X-Ray is the Album artwork) And I had to decide if I wanted to keep doing inline-skating or music and what means more to me. And I decided that my wrists and hands are more important for me and my music so from that day I focused on music which was my Option and Choice that I can never take back. 

A demo of two songs related and stringed together like no other that I have made so far. A personal exploration of human and more so friendship interaction through wrong affections. 

Notes for the listener for #1 People Say What They Want to Hear (People Hear What They Want to Say) 

Clarity of words, thoughts and instances often comes when you go back to it and revisit the exact point of disorder in your mind. The vocals and other* instrument tracks in this piece are at a regular playing aspect while everything else is Reversed , Backwards and mixed and matched with the original recordings. This is trying to portray that sense of understanding when a memory is brought back up when the waters of stress have settled down and clear thought takes action. 

from Select/Option *Demo*, 04 May 2014 A musical collage between two versions of the same song. "Wooden Flesh" was the original track which was remixed, edited and set to reverse to become this.

Instruments used : Concertina, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Fender tape echo, Acoustic Guitar used as percussive instrument, claps and slaps, 

Notes for the listener for #2 WOODEN FLESH 

Here we have an opposite effect of what the previous track was about. The vocals and other* instrument tracks are backwards in this piece, while all the other instruments are regular. There is no way to understand the lyrics but that's how it is sometimes when we cant even talk to anyone or understand what they're saying because we want to spit out our mind and personal belief before or right after them.

credits from Select/Option *Demo*, 04 May 2014 Instruments used : Concertina, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Fender tape echo, Acoustic Guitar used as percussive instrument, claps and slaps, 

This is an alternate Version of "Wooden Flesh" which was the initial instigator piece that made me collage , remix and edit produce "People Say What They Want to Hear" .
