Today, Albuquerque, NM’s Lowercase Noises premiere a new video. The clip was recorded live in one take in the sprawling mountains near Placitas, NM. The video is part of Lowercase Noises’ ongoing series “Simple Sounds in Simple Places” in which epic ambient/drone soundscapes are performed in natural environments. Watch the video below.
Winter 2015 sees the release of the retrospective An Introduction to Lowercase Noises album, featuring highlights from several Lowercase Noises releases. The collection ranges in sound from massive Swans style epics to delicate ambient guitar symphonies to lush melodies blending delicate banjo with ethereal tones.
Lowercase Noises is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Andy Othling. He began working under the name in 2008, while in college in Albuquerque, NM. All songs have been written, recorded and mixed by Othling, who plays every instrument on all songs, with exception of a few guest musicians/vocalists. To date, Lowercase Noises has issued 11 EPs & full lengths.
This Is For Our Sins (2014) is Othling’s most recent full length, a sprawling endeavor following the story of a Russian family that lived in isolation in the Siberian wilderness for over 40 years. James, a 5-song EP created as a gift to Othling’s newborn son was released in summer 2015. Throughout Lowercase Noises discography, each release focuses on particular ideas, themes and limitations to create dramatic and lush music.
