Weds Sept 11th
Reality Something’s debut Life Noise is an album that came from a very dark, isolating time. The words you will hear come straight from Elena’s notebooks and are things like “I am a chewed up piece of meat” and “our love is an open sore” and “I can sleep much easier with your teeth around my neck.” At the same time, there’s a real intimacy in the way the record sounds— one that could only be achieved recording at home, by Kingsley in the studio he built himself. His guitar wanders in the same stream-of-consciousness way, sometimes punctuating the bitterness and sometimes disguising it with a catchy riff, but always capturing the emotion exactly how it needs to be heard. Meanwhile, Bill’s bass lines always rumble moodily underneath and Ethan’s drums hit hard, driving the songs like a freight train.
The words in Life Noise are raw and vulnerable and sometimes even ugly. But the things Elena wrote in her notebook after Life Noise, those things are hopeful and determined. Because she took her pain and turned it into something powerful. Because she created something out of feeling like nothing. And because she hopes that when people listen to it, they’ll feel like they can do the same.
We have the wonderful Ariana Hodes and Cassandra Bailey-Langjahr aka The Longest Year coming through Sandusky September 16th on their #oniontimetour . w/ guests Chris Castle and Brad Walk
