EP010: Attack on the Black Sound

Time again for the Muni bus of noise music – we throw you around unexpectedly, you don’t want to touch anything, and no one bothers asking if you’ve paid your fare. However, unlike Muni, MARTYRS IS ON TIME. Insert sad trombone. Prepare to have your sonic senses awakened as your docents unveils an extraordinary collection of avant-garde music. Ethereal melodies intertwine with textures that conjure images of cockroaches skittering along walls. Your docents and a bunch of weird artificial intelligence present a befuddling audible landscape that defies convention. Okay, but what are you really hearing in those moments of silence? Friends? Adversaries? Margaret? Perhaps it will be revealed now. In the meantime, revel in the bus-style rumbling in your guts.
