The second single by Golden Veins is now streamable on their website: www.goldenveins.com. The official release date is 10/12/10.
A Kafkaesque fever dream, “Frantic Prayer” races via sinewy guitars and spacey electronics toward an inevitably tragic ending. The b-side, “Kicking The Tires,” is a rude awakening set to a pulsing beat. It’s disillusionment you can dance to.
This single also comes with two killer remixes, one by Purify, and one by Matt Bad (both of which are streaming on the website), as well as fantastic artwork by Jon Pearson.
And here’s a little something by the band about the A and B sides:
“Frantic Prayer” began life as a bare-bones demo Scott recorded ages ago. He had a cache with a fair amount of riffs and guitar lines that he presented to us, and I think this was the first of that group we worked on. I think the demo just went up to the part right before the ominous middle section, necessitating the writing of the ominous middle section. When we first played this live, we only played the rockin’ parts, so it was only about two minutes.
The melody took a while to write, as it’s a bit of a tricky song. The lyrics are about guilt.
KICKING THE TIRES
This is an anarchistic protest song which demonizes those in power while at the same time questioning society as a whole. It’s about dishonesty and control – the struggle to see through the former and regain the latter.
This song was first conceived about 6 years ago when I was living in Davis, California. The original demo was just a guitar and vocal, inspired by the large quantities of Billy Bragg that I had been consuming. That mess of an ending was actually rather simple and pretty at one point.

Over the past few months, Beati Paoli has been working on new material. They’ve been planning a split 7″ with hip hop artist Aeon Grey that will also include two digital mini-albums (via download cards). the 7″, titled “Quid Pro Quo”, will feature one new song from each artist, and the download only material will be a combination of new and remixed/reworked tracks.
The release party is scheduled for june 19th (at The Vaudeville Mews in Des Moines, IA), but you don’t have to wait that long to get a taste of the new stuff. This friday, 5/29/09, Beati Paoli will be uploading a new song, called “Massive Charm Offensive”, onto their website (http://www.beatipaoli.net) and myspace. I’ll try and upload it here as well.
and just so this post isn’t completely BORING, here’s a sample of the 7″ artwork:

i just wanted to take a moment to tell everyone about another new addition to the noising machine family; a couple of cute boys with the pseudonym:
“D R U I D S”
it’s definitely a large step away from our other new comrades, Wet Chemistry, and not exactly similar to Beati Paoli or MCKNGBRD, but at the same time, i think these four bands fit together very nicely. it might be that all The Noising Machine artists seem to come packaged with a similar frame of mind, or maybe it’s just that they all write music that i love, and you have to be me to see the connection. either way, i think it makes sense. you can check them out at http://www.myspace.com/druids666. so far, they only have one live song available to listen to, but there’s a full length studio album currently in the works, so be prepared. AND IN OTHER NEWS… Wet Chemistry was on Scented Vinyl a short ways back, and we now have a video from that appearance up on our myspace (http://www.myspace.com/thenoisingmachine). swing on over there and check it out. thenoisingmachine related posts:
