Invisible Things (members US Maple, Parts& Labor)
Martin Bisi, a New York indie rock performer and record producer has been at a crossroads of indie, punk, avant garde, noire/cabaret rock, and electronic music since the early 80’s in New York City.
At a recording studio he started in 1981 with the help of BrianEno, Martin Bisi has realized albums by Sonic Youth, Swans, Dresden Dolls, Pop 1280 (Sacred Bones), White Hills (Thrill Jockey), Africa Bambaataa, John Zorn, Herbie Hancock’s Rockit, Boredoms, Foetus, Helmet, Unsane, Serena Maneesh, US Maple, Jon Spencer’s Boss Hog, and countless other indie, experimental and post-punk records.
In his band’s set, Bisi plays guitar and sings, and performs songs from his album Ex Nihilo(Labelship records UK).The band swings between the heavier post-rock of the songs, and ambient soundscapes that feature the density and orchestral layering notable on many of Bisi’s productions. His vocal style is very varied, covering Hardcore, dream/shoe-gaze, and even death metal.
New Atlantis Records presents Time AS One Axis, the sophomore recording by Invisible Things– Comprised of guitarist Mark Shippy (of U.S. Maple + Shorty) and drummer/noted ethnomusicologist Jim Sykes (Parts & Labor, Grooms, 77 Boadrum), Time AS One Axis is a record of heavy, atmospheric noise rock, engineered by studio legend Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Swans) at B.C. Studio in Brooklyn. Here, cathartic squalls of feedback coalesce with forceful, rapturous percussion, evoking both the searing intensity of NY no-wave, and the skewed songcraft of the Skin Graft/Load Records stables in equal measure.
Shippy and Sykes first collaborated in guitarist Marnie Stern‘s backing band, as they toured in support of her This is It… record. Home IS the Sun, the duo’s debut for Porter Records, followed shortly thereafter.
