65daysofstatic Profile

Sheffield, United Kingdom (2001 – present)

65daysofstatic began in Sheffield, United Kingdom in 2001 as Iain Armstrong, Paul Wolinski and Joe Fro. Contrary to popular belief, they did not originally form to try to write music to fit the unreleased and little known John Carpenter film, ‘Stealth Bomber’ (starring Kurt Russell). Instead, they took their name from the 1954 CIA-backed coup d’etat in Guatemala. There, the CIA put a white book instrument to use in which 65 days of disabling the communication systems of a nation while spreading propaganda is enough to overthrow a country.

65daysofstatic (also known by the abbreviation 65dos) are an instrumental electronic and post-rock band from Sheffield, UK. Their debut album, The Fall of Math, was released to critical acclaim and they have released a second album, One Time For All Time, which has also been well received. The band intersperses heavy, progressive, guitar-driven instrumental sections with both idm-esque programmed and live drums. Their albums, as a result, maintain a distinctively gritty, almost industrial feel... also bearing in mind that it is practically impossible to tag them in a particular and specific group.

[ WILD LIGHT ]. Our album, Wild Light, is released in the UK and Europe on Monday 16th September through Superball Music. It will follow in the U.S on 29th October, and is also coming imminently to Australia via Bird’s Robe Records and Japan via Zankyo. Of course we all know that, if you look in the right places, it’s also available entirely for free on the torrent sites and will be forever more.

65daysofstatic had wanted to put out a torrent release ourselves on the day of the official release. Somebody is going to whether we like it or not, and we believe that rather than putting our heads in the sand and pretending it isn’t happening, by proactively seeding the torrent on release day (especially after having managed to avoid the record leaking), we could control the things bundled with it, and allow people to support us in other ways. We could include ticket links, info on the vinyl version…A donate button, maybe? A message to people torrenting it explaining that as much as 65 believe the current model of music ‘consumption’ is hopelessly outdated and fundamentally broken, we are stuck inside it nevertheless; even just buying a t-shirt from our online store makes a real, tangible difference.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver

Review of "Burial Songs" by Palehorse/Palerider

In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
