Just because there’s a lockdown doesn’t mean music have to stop. So to anyone that missed it, we’re offering a replay of our recent online festival – a sequel to our Mayfest!
What you’ll find within is an hour plus long visual extravaganza combining animation and music from artists out of US, Argentina and Japan. While you’re watching don’t forget to subscribe to our channel and/or check out Skyjelly/Solilians split that we just put out!
Participants / Bios
Boston’s Skyjelly are a band who appreciate how a bit of lo-fi entropy fits into their songs. Echoed and barely intelligible vocals latch around the repetition for a while, then at three minutes a searing guitar solo melts your face right off. Think a Butthole Surfers’ wig out executed with William Onyeabor’s lo-fi funk aesthetic. – Tristan Bath / Quietus

Kirk Markarian, electronics & arrangement
Neuro… No Neuro (NNN) is a moniker of the electronic musician Kirk Markarian, an avid synthesist, drummer, abstract painter, and graphic designer residing on the alluvial plain of the Sonoran Desert, in dry and dusty Tucson, Arizona.
For fans of early Mille Plateaux (Oval, Alva Noto et al), NNN will appeal to those attune with minimal glitch shapes and structures that all seem to meld as a cohesive whole. – Igloo Magazine
