Demo by Conduit

Conduit, a fresh New York noise-rock band with members of Twin Stumps and White Suns, have posted their first demo online. Its six brutal songs of hardcore-influenced noise-sludge are in the vein of other modern New York noise greats such as Drunkdriver and Uniform. The demo will get a proper release in the next couple months on Chicago-based label Rotted Tooth Recordings (operated by soon-to-be-former Oozing Wound drummer Kyle Reynolds), and today’s 12 O’Clock Track is a little peek into the deranged tape. In “Ultra Birth,” layers of free-form, blown-out guitar squall and tortured vocals are anchored by heavily distorted bass and pummeling, glacially paced drums. Prepare yourself for some seriously bad vibes.
