Up Died Sound: S/T LP 12"

Instrumental experimental rock trio Up Died Sound performed at Zebulon, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. When Nicky Mao, guitarist/violinist for Brooklyn newcomers Up Died Sound, is asked to describe her band’s music, her response is appropriately cryptic: “Up and died, and then born again.” The band’s instrumental psychedelia recalls the underground psych sounds from India and the Middle East available on Sublime Frequencies, but according to Mao, Eastern sounds are just one part of the band’s sonic palette. Today, she’s listening mainly to techno and the experimental German composer Ekkehrd Ehlers. “It was never an intention to make any sort of music in particular. We're on our own trip and really not concerned with standing around and kicking a dead horse,” says Mao. “I think we are more expressive as innovators rather than keepers of the dead, no?”
