This past weekend was an incredibe testament to how far the NYC noise scene has come in the past few years. Just a short time ago, having one killer show in a weekend was reason enough to get excited, but for me, hitting up 5 rock solid shows (okay, one was in western mass.) was a true test to the ears, and a feast to the psyche, one which i was happy to subject myself to.

Among the MVPs of the weekend were my local favs Telecult Powers and Pizza Night honcho, Sam Goldberg, who each respectively utilized the Glasslands sound system to it’s fullest extent to churn my insides into a juicy pile of cosmic slop. Following Sam bringing it hard the next afternoon at Eat Records, the two joined forces for a short, but sweet, collab for Pendu’s Black Mass at Tommmy’s Tavern in Greenpoint.

Without any further ado… I present to you the first in a series I’d like to call “Earbuds”, some of my collection of cassette ‘bootlegs’ of localized noise dudes I think are spiffy. Shows will be stream-only until I can confirm the downloadability of each…
