Review : Alex Body "Just Say Yes"

Alex has been serving us his own brand of dark synth pop around Iowa City for a couple years now. Recently taking Body across the country to the east coast infecting jaded ears with his burnt Casio soundscapes,cassette drum loops and honest lyrics. Don't pass Body off as a noise act, there are great songs and melodies inside these blasted triangle waves and eaten up tape fragments. Expect a new release from Body on Night People Records this fall. In the meantime download my favorite song from "Just Say Yes" Distorted Hallway.

Centaur Noir "Be Free" (DOWNLOAD)

Download: Centaur Noir "Be Free"

Centaur Noir's "Be Free" EP is another release in the Deep Cuts free download series. This seven song EP features a collection of earlier recordings and "Rock The Hall" outtakes. The sound on "Be Free" is raw and folky ranging at times between full band rock 'n' roll and simple stripped down haunting melodies. All instruments are played by Jon Burns except Chad Gooch playing organ on track 3 and backing vocals on track 5. Recorded and mixed by Jon Burns at Sound and Vision Studio Moline, IL.
