Face Plant is the solo alias of Peaking Lights' Aaron Coyes. VBS.TV just put out a great feature on the process behind Coyes' sound-making, basically a frankensteining of old electronics from second-hand shops. The results are industrially psychedelic, the sound of boards bent beyond recognition and recreated as overdriven, circuit-powered noise briefcases. With Peaking Lights, Coyes' noise is tamed into relatively pop-leaning intentions. The haze is thick but the vibes are good. Face Plant corrupts it all, dropping a nasty virus into Coyes' CPU. The haze is crystallizing, knobs are melting, control is there but only just.

Below is a selection from the untitled side B of the Get High And Listen cassette, released last year on Catholic Tapes. I'm almost getting a Terry Riley vibe here, some nicely ornamented one-hand keyboard (?) explorations over a thick fuzz and some occasional low fat tones.
