Breathe in. Breathe out. Own your existence on this planet. Guys, last month was a roller coaster of affirmations and denials, on both a personal and public level, so let's spare the clever metaphors and cut right to the chase. You who listen to this show, I embrace you. Athens Popfest has left me still in awe of kindness, of how readily and easily people will offer their kindness - and so I have vowed, that never will I give up on people. Do not ever, world, consign me to a hermit's cloister.
That said, this month's show is crammed to the rim with positive vibes. You'll hear some of the upbeat bands that charmed us in Athens' neighborhood pub, like the enchanted songstress Emileigh Ireland and versatile crooners Tres Oui; on the main stage, arena voyagers Weaves and new wave theatre buffs The New Pornographers will sweep you off your feet. Speaking of Canada, (which I tend to do a lot these days), there's also a punishing 12+ minute scorcher from BIG | BRAVE, followed shortly by the breezy and brisk Faith Healer (positivity comes in many shades, yes?). Extra shout-outs to the ever-righteous Palehound, technicolor marvels Guerilla Toss, and gorgeous indie kids SOAR for their doses of joy, too.
For those of you in an irrevokably jaded mood - well, I can't blame you, and I got ya covered. Dig the rough twitchy sketch from Yeah You, the molten lava flow of Dälek, or the witty and wired screed from The Blow. Plus, EMA is back, so you know dark clouds are a-brewing there. The most biting critiques of all, though, may stem from the Fugazi obsessives Object Collection, who have tediously copied the DC heroes' warm-up exercises and incendiary banter and re-assembled the pieces into fiery collages of their own design.

Neurosis - Tomorrow's Reality Buy this track
NeurosisPowered by Audioscrobbler™1) Neurosis is an experimental metal band based in Oakland, CA, United States. Their unique sound draws influences from sludge, doom metal, hardcore punk, progressive rock, tribal and even ambient and industrial music. They are often considered as pioneers of the genre commonly referred to as atmospheric sludge metal and/or post-metal.

In late 1985, Scott Kelly, Dave Edwardson and Jason Roeder (formerly members of Violent Coercion) founded the band as a hardcore outfit, borrowing from British crust punk. It has gradually progressed through a variety of styles, arriving at a mixture of heavy metal and acoustic, minimalistic ambiance which has proved influential on the doom metal scene.

From 1990 to 1993, Adam G. Kendall was recruited to create the visuals and perform live with the band. Following his departure from touring, Pete Inc. took over the job, although Kendall continued to contribute visuals for the band until as late as 1997. Kendall also shot the footage for the "Locust Star" video. Josh Graham took over live visuals in early 2000, and was with the band until late 2012 when he left to pursue his band A Storm of Light full time. He also created album artwork for 2004's The Eye of Every Storm and 2007's Given to the Rising.

Often experimental and psychedelic in nature, the visuals have added to the reputation of Neurosis' live performances. Many of the visuals for their tours supporting Through Silver in Blood can be found in Ken Russell's film Altered States. Other images are included in the enhanced portion of the Sovereign mini album, and on the A Sun That Never Sets DVD video release. The majority of the DVD release was directed by Josh Graham, with an additional video by Chad Rullman.

Additionally, the band have founded their own independent record label, Neurot Recordings, which, in addition to releasing material from Neurosis and its associated projects, has since become home to several innovative musicians.

Band members:
Scott Kelly - guitar, vocals
Steve Von Till - guitar, vocals
Dave Edwardson - bass guitar, keyboards, synthesizer, vocals
Noah Landis - organ, piano, samples
Jason Roeder - drums
Josh Graham - visual artist

2) Neurosis are a thrash metal band from Bogotá, D.C., Colombia, formed in 1987. They play in the raw, relentless South American style, influenced equal amounts by hardcore punk as death metal. They were known as Neurosis Inc. for some time and released a full-length, a live album, a split and a compilation under that name. Before adding "Inc." in their name, they toured under War Messiah in the United States to avoid confusion with the domestic Neurosis. Read more on Last.fm.
