The Brainwashed Brain
review of ’Gorilla Masking Tape’ by [sic]

"Having listened to and zoned out on this release at least half a dozen times, it should be obvious what it is that is so compelling about [sic]’s compositions of dusty long drones, deep ambient spaces and bump-in-the-night tension, but it’s not. On the one hand, this is difficult listening: all uneasy sounds and dischordant timbres rubbing up against one another to create an ambiguous feeling of dread. On the other hand, for those familiar with the work of like-minded artists like those featured on the quasi-legendary "Isolationism" compilation, [sic] fits perfectly into a already-defined niche of dark, brooding ambient characterized more by its claustrophobia than by its use reflection of space as an expanse. I could tell you that Gorilla Masking Tape is a beautiful, haunting record, or that it’s alpha-wave inducing at the right volume, or that it’s a perfectly quiet record for people who lead unquiet lives, but none of that really captures the force that these tracks embody. Perhaps the record’s most defining characteristic is that it is indeed so malleable that it can be both loud and quiet, both serene and disturbed, both beautiful and terrifying and that it does all of this effortlessly. I often wonder what more can be said about music like this that is both barely there and a force of nature all at once, depending on your volume knob. I always think that it will be impossible for someone to release yet another essential dark ambient disc in a world where artists who do this sort of thing tend to have voluminous discographies of equally affecting work already. I think that, and then I hear a record like Gorilla Masking Tape and it suddenly all sounds fresh and important and essential again and I’m left wanting more. It doesn’t get much better than that."

SQUIRRELGIRL DEMO POLICY - NO DEMOS PLEASE

2004-07-12

Hello

Due to an unforeseen amount of interest, we need to inform you that Squirrelgirl Records does not accept demos.

We would love to hear what you do, yet we just don’t have the time to deal with the demand, we are a small label and we have bands lined up for the next few years. We sincerely do not want artists spending their hard earned cash on sending us demos.

cheers

Squirrelgirl news Late June -[sic] & friends

2004-06-06

Squirrelgirl news Late June.

As some of you already know [sic] released a new full length CD on May 11th, 2004.
Here is a review by Raf Katigbak of the Montreal Mirror:

[sic] - Gorilla Masking Tape (Piehead)

Montreal audio-visual artist [sic] has been voluntarily hovering just below the radar for the past year,
letting her fan base - like her music - creep in slowly and steadily. For this release on Piehead,
[sic] has crafted a fine ambient release that shows a taste for balance, restraint and creeping people the fuck out.
Gorilla Masking Tape is the sound of warm analog textures, prepared guitar and bass, a bevy of effects pedals
and two months without sleep. Bleary-eyed and hazy, the sonic landscape has a moodiness that is at once peaceful
and unsettling, not unlike the feeling of successfully removing a small metal shard from your eyelid with a needle.

+++++++++++++++++

Look out for [sic]’s newest track to be released early July on German net label
Adozen

+++++++++++++++++

[sic] has been working on a downloadable release for Squirrelgirl Records.
She has been working with friends to collaborate on tracks & upload them to this site.

Everyone is swamped with their own work, so this will be uploaded little by little.
Once the songs have all been completed, the tracks that sound nice along side each other will
eventually be downloadable to fit on a CD. Artwork will also be provided for you to print.
Until then keep an eye on the mp3 section.
[sic] is currently working on a collaborative track with Montreal starlet/gorgeous talented babe
Mylena Bergeron.

+++++++++++++++++

If you are in Montreal this evening be sure to head over to
Casa del Popolo

too see [sic]’s friends play at the suoni festival.

David Kristian, Knurl, and Tim Hecker @ Casa Del Popolo
4873 boul. St-Laurent
Montreal, QC
Tickets: $8
