B°TONG (from Basel, Switzerland)
Hostile soundscapes (Switzerland / Silken Tofu & Greytone) Chris Sigdell is an experimental electronic musician. He developed a soft spot for early industrial textures and pioneering ambient soundscapes while cutting his teeth in cult industrial band NID (1995-2005). He builds an interesting body of work that moves in various directions at the same time. From dealings with ambient and isolationism on one hand and experimental music, ranging from the soft microsound end to the more engaging noise end, in a clever combination of ideas… Since 2005 he has performed at more than 200 venues in Europe, Russia, Canada and the USA, and has appeared at various experimental and industrial festivals such as: Norberg Festivalen (S), Temple Of Silence (PL), PNEM (NL), Støy På Landet (N), Monsters Of Rot (IRL), Destroy All Artifacts (UK), Unser Industrie (DE), Ausklang (DE), Shift (CH), Lab30 (DE), Kildemose Festivalen (DK), Zeit Für Lärm (DE), Sinus Series (CH). B°tong has released over 10 albums on labels like Drone Records (DE), Zoharum (PL), Attenuation Circuit (DE), Noecho Records (UK) and Gears Of Sand (USA). Nowadays he is signed to Greytone (“Hostile Environments” CD) and Silken Tofu (“Prostration Before Infinity” LP).
OLDINE (from Paris, France)
Creates a psychedelic atmosphere, melancholic smoothness interfered by feedback, resonances and other digital distorsions… somewhere between John Fahey and spacemen 3.
RAT BABIES (from Athens GA, USA)
A doom / psychedelic / noise (heavy, slow, hard, noisy, think the Melvins meets Neurosis) two piece from Athens GA. Rat Babies has been touring the south-eastern US for over ten years.
Press: "The EP is named Mumbles, and the lead single is “Anchor.” The song is slow-churning, anxiously abrasive and easily among the most fully realized things Rat Babies has ever recorded. The band is self-described as “psychedelic-doom-noise,” and that’s pretty accurate, although I’d argue there’s a solid sense of melody in most of their stuff, even if it’s not laying right there on the surface."
