Paisley Babylon has been hard at work in the studio doing a number of projects including mixing and remixing a new album by Binary Partners. Details on that are coming soon, but suffice it to say that the record is heavily influenced by the philosophies of Burroughs, Gysin, and early electronic music pioneers. There is plenty of sonic madness on offer and BP are releasing bits and pieces of their studio work in anticipation of the new album.
Here’s one such outtake from the Binary Partners sessions of late 2012 and early 2013. “Let Those Asses Know We’re In Here” is a pagan tribute to all that is irreverent, blasphemous, and improper. This version features instrumentation, cutups and other manipulations by Paisley Babylon.
Paisley Babylon’s next full-length release is nearly finished. Called “Electronic Acid”, the album so far is 11 tracks of surrealism, a dose of harsh ambient, a dash of power electronics, aural hallucinations and inner journeys to outer space. Samples are coming soon, and there will be a single or two released from this album in remixed form prior to the official album launch.
In the meantime, Paisley Babylon’s Joe Wallace has been working with Esmeralda Trujillo on a project called Binary Partners, with a live performance scheduled in December ahead of a full-length LP release scheduled for early 2013. In the meantime, here’s a sample of what to expect from Binary Partners, which is a return to old-school first generation industrial and experimental music (before the industrial genre became overtaken by sequenced drum tracks, cocaine abuse, and football fans–think Throbbing Gristle, Coil, and Wire rather than Ministry and Pigface.)
Here’s an excerpt from a new, longish Paisley Babylon track called “Sexy Hangover”. Fans of Nurse With Wound, Coil, the more ambient selections from Nine Inch Nails’ The Fragile, and Eno should be able to find something to love about this.
Recorded in Chicago, Illinois, this new Paisley Babylon track is part of a new release that combines soundtrack sounds, electronica, loop-based live performances, 80s industrial, and mid-period Eno. Stay tuned for more–there is PLENTY to come.
