Boring Machines Disturbs Sleep: Phorous

Boring Machines Disturbs Sleep

Saturday, August 12, 2006


Today the world is ruled by the internet, it could not function without it. Sites such as myspace have made it possible for music from all corners of the globe to reach the most unlikely places. If you were to tell me I would be listening to a band from Singapore, I would have called you crazy!.

But that is exactly what I have being doing the last week or so. Phorous are a quartet of musicians, all with differing influences, who have come together to produce "improvised and atmospheric, electronic music".

All four members have other bands too, ranging from the punk music of NVRLRN to pop rock of Slantboy. The band have a myriad of influences that somehow manage to include Acid Mothers Temple, Weezer and Japanese instruemntal trio Mono.

Their 2005 album, "Rollercoaster 2 Weeks", is available to download from their website. However, it is their brand new album "Timelessness" that you should check out. This will be released by their own record label Elintseeker Sounds. You can listen here to some of their songs or download the mp3 below the band have donated, from "Rollercoaster 2 Weeks". Read a review of "Timelessness" here.
