Boring Machines New and Upcoming Releases


A few new albums from Boring Machines:

La Piramide di Sangue – Sette LP
LA PIRAMIDE DI SANGUE (The bloody pyramid) – is a seven musician ensemble from Torino, Italy. The sound of the band is built on two guitars, two basses, one clarinet, one synth, several effects, drums and percussions. There’s a rich history in psychedelic music, and we all know it. The best trip is always the one yet to be embarked upon. And each trip is different from the one before. You can’t jump into the same lysergic river twice. Don’t even try. Instead, prepare to be washed away by the sonic waves of Sette – a sunbaked stoner trip for both the funky freshman and the psychedelic veteran.
The latter may find traces of Santana’s Caravanserai or Embryo’s Reise when listening – as well as some strong Spiritual Jazz vibes, resembling the Phill Musra Group and the likes. It’s all there and much more.

Maurizio Abate – A Way to Nowhere LP ( released May 16th )
Another co-production, this time with Black Sweat Records, with whom we already shared the Eternal Zio album. Maurizio Abate is a self taught guitarist active since the early 2000s, with an instinctive approach to experimentation. He is always looking for new forms of expression, to mould a personal shape to the blues and to psychedelic matter, mainly driven by a particular fascination for stringed instruments. He has an impressive activity both live and in the studio, alone or as a part of many different projects.

Adriano Zanni – Red Desert Chronicles (Postcards from Ravenna)
This will be our first non musical release, even if this images are so loud you can hear the sound through them. Red Desert Chronicles is a collection of pictures taken by Adriano Zanni aka Punck. Punck released a record titled Piallassa (Red Desert Chronicles) on Boring Machines in 2008, with field recordings and sounds taken from the same area he was born in 1964, same place same year when Michelangelo Antonioni shot his famous movie Red Desert. The collection of pictures is the ideal continuation of Adriano’s wandering around his birthplace.

Dream Weapon Ritual
Simon Balestrazzi is a key figure of italian underground since the early ’80s when he founded T.A.C. (Tomografia Assiale Computerizzata). Since then he has pioneered many different styles from post-industrial noises to electronic soundscapes. His duo with actress/vocalist Monica Serra incorporates electronic and industrial elements, mixed with drones and futuristic folk music. The result is something which tries to defy categorisation, with a dreamy and visionary aspect.

Rent Romus Lords of Outland – The Proceedings of Dr. Ké
The Lords of Outland celebrate 20 years of music with the release of The Proceedings of Dr. Ké is inspired by the essays and fiction of experimental psychologist Dr. Charles Poncé on what he termed “Blade Runner Psychology”, as well as the mythical figure in Dr. Poncé’s fiction known as Dr. Ké.
Philip Everett – drums/electronic autoharp Collette McCaslin – trumpet, electronics Ray Schaeffer – electric bass Rent Romus – alto, soprano saxophone Joshua Marshall – tenor saxophone Hasan Abdur-Razzaq – tenor saxophone L.A. Jenkins – electric guitar

Keith Kelly – The People Who Left
The People Who Leftis a snap shot. A series of relationships captured in real time. Any record is a record from the past. Any moment captured is one set adrift, ready to take harbor at some future point. Any music is music referencing some other time, some other place, some other version of self.
Keith Kelly – soprano, tenor saxophones, bass clarinet, flute Ari Chersky – guitar Shaun Lowecki – drums Doug Stuart – upright bass

The Equity & Social Justice Quartet, The Whisper of Flowers
The Equity and Social Justice Quartet, a new jazz group formed by San Francisco Bay Area bassist and educator Markus Hunt. The title of the album was taken from a quote from bassist William Parker: “It is not about jazz, it is about sound as revealed through the mysteries of life. About those who have said yes to the whisper of a flower and the shout of a blue hurricane.”
Markus Hunt – doublebass David Boyce – tenor saxophone Henry Hung – trumpet Timothy Orr – drums

Nashville Electric
Nashville is a town of musicians of all stripes and many talents, some of whom simply go where the music takes them, stubbornly rejecting the notion they must belong to a single genre. One fine spring day in 2013 this led four well known musicians and one budding noisemaker, all fierce proponents of improv, to assemble at the home of producer Ed Pettersen to record this debut album.
Tracy Silverman – electric six string violin, effects Ryan Norris – keyboards Dylan Simon – keyboards, effects Thollem McDonas – keyboard Ed Pettersen – guitar, effects, percussion
