Labels: Creep Records. GMM Records. The listing on this is all screwed up. None of it would strike anyone as out of the ordinary From that masculine frame emanates a woman's voice, one that doesn't just hit the higher registers like some Appalachian castrati, but possesses an assertive feminine lilt reminiscent of Laura Cantrell or Iris DeMent.
But this isn't the typical androgyny of glam, which has no freight in the Americana traditions Death Vessel adopts. Gender isn't an issue inherent in the band's music, but is projected onto it by listeners and passively undiscouraged by the artist himself. Thibodeau-- who plays most of the instruments on the album-- doesn't write from a female perspective-- or from a male perspective either; on Stay Close the point of view is deliberately clouded by the delivery, which adds a layer of mystery to every note.
As complex and compelling as it is, this aspect of Death Vessel proves as much a liability as an asset, often suggesting the mere novelty of a physical feat rather than actual artistry. On a few songs-- most notably the jaunty openers "Mean Streak" and "Later in Life Lift"-- Thibodeau's Whos Generation - Sham 69 - Tell Us The Truth (Vinyl delivery sounds like an end in itself, but more often it serves the purposes of his precisely crafted melodies and obscurely out-of-time lyrics, melding nicely into the mix of acoustic guitars, banjo, fiddle, and organ.
Occasionally this atmosphere sounds studied and rehearsed, but moments like the coda of "Nothing Left to Bury" and the menacing drum-guitar interplay on "Deep in the Horchata" suggest a creative investment that transcends put-on airs.
A mortal dread, played out with tensely intertwined guitar lines and gusts of feedback, shadows "Blowing Cave" and "Tidy Nervous Breakdown", making even the capriciousness of upbeat songs like the bluegrass "Mandan Dink", about a leisurely day at a place called Picnic Rock, seem precarious.
On "Deep in the Horchata" he scratches out a melody on fiddle to echo his own vocals, as Daneil Mazone's drums stitch everything together. Review from pitchforkmedia. Chris Forgues does love making noise, and that comes across quite obviously on most of these tracks. However, instead of just blowing out speakers, he is also interested in using his array of Album) built oscillators and effects to create a more moody, atmospheric backing to the destruction.
The vaguely musical sounds of the home made gear also appear on "Poison Blur" in the form of a cheesy s Eurotrash art flick, but the mix stays tamer on a backing of subbass oscillator swells and other ambient effects. It is as weird and wonderful as it sounds. The use of an answering machine message on "Cool People" may be reminiscent of Throbbing Gristle's classic "Death Threats" but is much less sinister, and augmented with a metric ton of noise.
Balancing pummeling electronics and the absurd is a tough call, but he does it, and for that reason, this album may have appeal outside of the circle of folks that make orgasmic moans at the thought of the Merzbox.
Review from brainwashed. Chippendale unleashes another comic upon an unsuspecting world. Awesome screenprinted cover, 76 pages of black and white brain destruction.

After months of trying to track them down, I finally saw Zeitgeist the other night.
They opened for Jello Biafra's new band along with Submachine. Both bands played to the stunning apathy that only a Pittsburgh audience can provide.
And people wonder why there isn't a much larger scene in this town with more all-ages shows. Zeitgeist tore it up. The band was incredibly tight and the singer, Tilley, was an absolute monster on stage. I am very curious to see how she would attack a real crowd.
