New Rock Weekly: Atmospheric Bands

Melancholy folk-pop punctuated by textured noise, framing plaintive tenor and bruised acoustic guitar with drum samples, driving bass, and waves of effects. Also features experimental guitarist Bryin Dall, best known for his work with Genesis P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV) in spoken word/sound collage project Thee Majesty, as well as adding to the noise on the last Angels of Light.

"soothing pop songs...keep you guessing by the constant inclusion of electronic burst and interference...
full of damn fine songwriting and in the end that's what makes Dream Into Dust superb and influential in their own right." [Wetworks]

"...lush acoustic guitars and warm singing contrasting with dissonant percussion samples...It's like Radiohead if it recorded for the Projekt label, or Porcupine Tree if it gave in fully to its electronic impulses." [High Bias]

"...part industrial, part classical, part avant-garde tone poems that alight on touchstones as varied as Nine Inch Nails, Damien Rice, the squealing brakes of subway trains and the clanging of lift shaft cables... giving a voice to ennui and feverish emotion...disturbing and vital." [Logo Magazine]

UNSOUND [10pm]  [www.theunsound.com]
Moody alt-rock driven by electric beats, merging abrasive electro with acoustic instruments, addictive melodies, and punk rock attitude.

SOMA [9pm] [www.insidesoma.com]
Melding British post-punk, shoegazer rock, and pop elements in a rush of reverb-drenched guitars, groove-based rhythms, and passionate vocals.
