Last year took Los Angeles based noisemakers, Tearist, for quite the ride. The joint project from Yasmine Kittles and No Age’s William Strangeland finally saw the release of their debut (and live) LP, Living: 2009 – Present; receiving great reviews from places like Pitchfork as well as a cover story in LA Weekly. Kittles, an outspoken and vivacious personality, can been seen on stage striking a collection of scrap metal pieces routed through delay pedals, all the while her echoing melodic shouts attack and decay prominently throughout Strangeland’s rigid beat foundation and scattered synth lines. The result is an impressive contrast between structure and chaos that is intriguingly obscure, and thankfully never reserved.
