Fuck buttons, give me velcro.

Band: Fuck Buttons
Album: Surf Solar 7"
Origin: Great Britain (Bristol)
Genre: Electronic, Experimental, Noise, Drone
Year: 2009

Yet another quick post with a lame title. This one fitting in my plan to expand the music genres available on this blog.
Fuck Buttons are a British band that mix electronic music with a good amount of noise and some droning (partly achieved by manipulating children's toys!). This is the single for their second record, Tarot Sport, containing two tracks. The first one is an edited version of the opening track from Tarot Sport (Surf Solar) featuring a strong beat overpowered by noisy synths (or toys or whatever) and some added sounds. Feels a bit like taking xtc on a construction site (if construction workers played synthesizers that is). The second track (New Crossbow) feels more like slowly coming down, being more ambient and less harsh even though the drums have a strong tribal feeling to it. Enjoy!

Kinda reminds me of Autechre.

Yeah, but I think that this is more straightforward.

You got any more?

The Whale said...

Yeah, but it might take a little while, I'm still having exams. I'm glad you like it (the future might even bring some Autechre to these shores)

toys for sex said...

eeing sex toys as taboo and only for more adventurous people, consider whether you would like to have your sexual experiences become that much better.
