Wired for sound

By MICHAEL BRODEUR  |  March 10, 2008

The increasing number of you poking your heads into our own burgeoning techno scene would do well to check out the forthcoming KEEPALIVE release on Zero G Sounds. Keepalive (né Jeremy Flower) has been keeping busy refining his increasingly minimal but always soulful sound as well as playing live laptop in Grammy winner OSVALDO GOLIJOV’s opera Ainadamar. Expect smart jams that you could easily get stupid to when it hits on April 2. Those interested in Zero G’s backlist will be glad to hear that the label has released its entire catalogue in digital form.

Last but by no stretch of the imagination least: the boys of RAMMING SPEED are welding the final scraps of their debut full-length, which is due in late May. Over the past year, they’ve knocked out about 80 shows all over the US, found themselves smelly and stranded in the desert, flirted with reality TV, and got arrested for kidnapping. (They didn’t do it.) Expect an album that takes these varied experiences into account while sticking to its mission of destroying your face with songs about everything from metal’s distaste for politics to the mighty hammer of Thor. Recorded with Jordan Levantini at New Alliance, Brainwreck seems sure to rule on multiple levels.

    We may seem a little cranky, but us local gayfolk just love a parade, and we’re actually heartened by this annual influx of brothers and sisters from every state of New England and every letter of our ever-expanding acronym.

    If I may channel the late, great Estelle Getty for a moment: picture it, Provincetown, 2009, a dashing young man with no discernible tan and an iffy T-Mobile signal languishes bored upon the sprawling patio of the Boatslip Resort.
    If the gradual polishing of Ariel Pink’s sound — and it’s not all that much more polished — puts his loyalists at odds with his albums, I count that as good news.
