We’re a Chicago band called Nonagon. We’ve been playing in and around the Midwest lo these 6 or 8 years. We’re comprised of Tony Aimone (whose previous bands include The Blue Meanies and Taylor), Robert Gomez, and John Hastie [ who both played in a bunch of bands you won’t remember ].

Our recorded output has been admittedly sparse, so we’re treating the February release of our new EP as something of a big deal. We’re hoping you might humor us by considering a feature or a review or an interview or adding it to your playlist or even just a listen....

THE RECORD

People Live Everywhere is a 5-song EP pressed on 180g vinyl. It was recorded over 3 days in the spring of 2011 at Kerguelen Studio, a one-room, all-analog facility in Astoria, NYC run by Justin Foley – he of the band The Austerity Program - who wielded the mics and turned the knobs.

More basics:

Mastered by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service Packaged with a card for a free download of the mp3s Jacket designed by Robert Gomez using photographs by Nathan Keay.

People Live Everywhere is a decidedly DIY affair. All planning, promotion, selling, and funding has been handled by the band ourselves. We’re pretty dang proud of how it’s all gone so far. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- “…reminds of Fugazi, dirty basements, high school, and what made me fall in love with music so many years ago.” [ The Deli Magazine ]. | | | | | FUGAZI FANS ALL THE WAY / EXCELLENT NOISE.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
