VAMPIRE BELT —

Formed in 2002 in western Massachusetts, Vampire Belt is Bill Nace (Body/Head, x.o.4, Ceylon Mange) on guitar & electronics and Chris Corsano (Paul Flaherty, Joe McPhee, Mette Rasmussen, Michael Flower) on drums & occasional electronics. Early on, they self-released a couple of CDRs of lo-fi blow-outs, something like a mangled car wreck at the intersection of hardcore and free jazz. Tours followed and then, in the early/mid 00's, Nace and Corsano phased partially out of Vampire Belt duo-mode in favor of collaborations with people like Jessica Rylan, Paul Flaherty, Steve Baczkowski, Okkyung Lee, Greg Kelley, Mats Gustafsson, Thurston Moore, Dredd Foole and Bill Orcutt. But in 2014 they made good on a 9 year-old promise to Ben Chasny to record a Vampire Belt album for his Hermit Hut label, resulting in the duo's first LP: Unfit Structures. It's not such a far cry from their obliterating early CDRs: improvised high-energy outbursts with spontaneously-structured forms imploding just as soon as they begin to solidify.

HORSEMAN, PASS BY. —
Horseman, Pass By. is a Havelock/Ottawa-based duo of Bennett Bedoukian (Drums and Electronics) and Mark Molnar (Cello and Electronics) that combine abstracted dead ends, improvisation, white noise transmissions across rural easement posts, and heavily choreographed rhythm and melody, combining the drone rattles of an old diesel engine with the frenzied calls of masses of mating passerines. Their music attempts to bridge the gaps between the echoes out of abandoned cold storage and the fractured voices of underestimated communities. They write songs for those with an ear for the persistent, and the dessication of dead leaves clinging to beech trees at dawn amid the issued reports of the frost cracking forest. The music is at times startling and ecstatic on the two and four, while unflinchingly scraping around the crevices of the bottomlands in an attempt to lay low in the age of irony.
