The sweet prettiness of pop undergoing its own sonic destruction. Is this some kind of negative theology? Some kind of self-cancellation? To create a simple bright melody and bury it deep under layers of feedback and drone and white noise. 1960's pop radio filtered through post-apocalyptic machinery ala the Jesus and Mary Chain, boy-girl vocals ala My Bloody Valentine (but more forceful). Hayyim played bass, Amy and Matt sang and Amy and Matt played guitar and Amy and Matt played drums. They were a band.
Now we have the Aisler's Set.
Now we have Sounds Of The Barbary Coast.
We have Total Shutdown.
And sometimes we have the How.
