SHITTY LISTENER - YOU START FIGHTS (mm 17)
Sister release to mm 19, From The Living Tomorrow by Daymoon.
You Start Fights is the latest installment in the Shitty Listener saga. Now based in Berlin, this time around Jason Honea is backed by Michael Northam, Melanie Velarde,
Barbara Massacci, Benjamin Aman & Juho Hotanen. Classic Shitty Listener attitude in a short sharp attack format.
Besides recording and performing as the Shitty Listener, Jason Honea also plays in the Child Readers with Loren Chasse and in the Knit Separates with Loren Chasse and Glenn Donaldson as well as in the Teenage Panzerkorps. You can go further back and mention Social Unrest. Shitty Listener marries a punk ethos to the Jewelled Antler aesthetic.
"I'm immediately struck by the strange intimacy of the recording. The listener seems to be floating through the music as it is being played- bumping into objects and people, putting an ear to a wall to hear what's happening in the next room, or even leaning over to listen to a faint whisper. The songs combine melodic sensibilities with pure field recording abstraction and lo-fidelity textural investigations- a simple keyboard line morphs into a wall of clicks and hiss, mumbled snippets of conversations swirl through a tin can, a half remembered song from a dream is recited into a dying tape recorder, guitars strum through shifting walls of feedback, everything falls apart and is put back to together again."- Charles Franklin/Foxy Digitalis (review of Crying Sweater by Shitty Listener)
