CINEMA CINEMA: CCXMD – Invisible Oranges

“Weird music for weird people. This is art punk’s finest taken to their furthest extreme. CINEMA CINEMA’s collaboration with Matt Darriau is wild — somehow free jazz, art punk, and Modern (that’s with a capital M, mind you) at the same time, CCXMD‘s wide, unbridled music is as intelligent as it is unintelligible.” – Jon Rosenthal / Invisible Oranges

CINEMA CINEMA Pack Spectacularly Freeing Weirdness Into Their New ‘Art Punk’ – Captured Howls

“The new album CCXMD from the Brooklyn-area “art punk” group CINEMA CINEMA packs personalized glorious weirdness into sprawling, completely unpredictable songs. […] The way in which this group dials into fierce, even irresistible melodicism even while exploring the outer reaches of chaos makes their music super memorable. CCXMD tells a “story” of venturing out into the outer reaches of sound and the more directly “real-world” elements it expresses and not just finding but furiously grasping onto a core of empowering individuality.” – Captured Howls

CINEMA CINEMA: CCXMD Album Review – SonicAbuse

CCXMD sees the band further their horizons by recruiting Matt Darriau (The Klezmatics) for a jazz-infused, largely improvised session that edges into territory that Thurston Moore has long called home. The results are most assuredly not for mainstream consumption, but for those who like to experience music as a unique, artistic outpouring. […] Challenging and exciting, CCXMD is a bold step away from the norm and, for those curious as to the elastic limits of jazz, well worth checking out.” – SonicAbuse

Album Review: Cinema Cinema – Selective Memory

“If Jethro Tull was a psychedelic jam band that listened to a massive amount of Wire, Soft Machine, and Chicago Art Ensemble […] What an aural journey this band takes the listener on. We feel the sense of anarchy staring down at us. The chaos can be liberating as much as it can warp the senses. Yet in this “entirely improvised” climate, the group are slaves to the machine and this recording either presents a snapshot of this specific moment of an artistic statement or ties them to a blueprint they have to take with them. How they reached this point is uncertain. But what I can conclude is that CCXMD is a momentous push forward for this group.” – Selective Memory

Avant Punk Rockers CINEMA CINEMA Return With CCXMD (Album Stream + Interview) – PopMatters

“…a sweeping release that is undoubtedly punk in spirit while also including doses of ambient and free jazz. If the New York City music scene has long been about marrying the raw aggression of frustrations of urban life with the heady, intellectual experiments of the avant-garde, CINEMA CINEMA prove themselves proud torchbearers on this latest sojourn.” – PopMatters

BEDTIMEMAGIC - Pillow Talk

BEDTIMEMAGIC releasing ‘Pillow Talk’ (stream “Snore Snore Snorer”) – BrooklynVegan

“Boston’s BEDTIMEMAGIC are a sludgy post-hardcore two-piece with Nicholas Pentabona on bass and vocals, and Morgan Berns on drums, vocals, and pedal organ, though you might not realize it’s only two people from listening to them. Nicholas makes his distorted bass sound like a bass and a guitar all at once, and the two of them have a sound that’s louder than some five-piece bands.” – BrooklynVegan
