Former Pan Sonic member and noise generator Mika Vainio has announced in a glitchy, distorted manner that he will be following up last year’s explosive Life (…It Eats You Up) (TMT Review) with a new release titled Magnetite on Touch.
The new record, due out September 3, is said to “examine the contrast between absolute silence and noise.” My money is on more noise than silence, but that’s probably wishful thinking. Maybe he samples “4’33”” for his silent moments. Who knows! I’m not very funny today.
