CIRCUIT DES YEUX – LITHONIA

Monday, January 14th, 2013

circuitA few months ago Circuit des Yeux announced her new release, a 10″ mini-album called CDY3, stating only that it would come out sometime in the winter. The winter is finally here, and so is CDY3, as promised, along with a stream of another new track. Showcasing Fohr’s powerful vocals, the eerily gorgeous “Lithonia” sounds quite different from the noisy “Helen, You Bitch” we featured back in October. Get CDY3 from Magnetic South, and check out Fohr’s recent guest mix.

NC GUEST MIX#62: CIRCUIT DES YEUX

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

If we haven’t posted anything in a while, that’s because we were in Berlin. And if it’s taking us too long to get back in the loop, that’s because we’re still recovering. And what better way to get things going again than by posting a new guest mix, right?
Number 62 comes from Haley Fohr, the young musician performing under the name Circuit Des Yeux. *Watch out for her upcoming Magnetic South release this winter!* Onto the mix. In Fohr’s own words, “they are records that are just my favorites, go-to’s, and ones that have miraculously survived many record purges I have done through the years, so that must mean they’ve done something to my psyche.” You can sure tell how this mixture of noisy lo-fi, experimental, industrial and psychedelic folk sounds might have informed her sound. Now get on this:

CIRCUIT DES YEUX – HELEN, YOU BITCH

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

So I’ve had this almost-nine-minutes-long experimental track on repeat for the past few days, and I don’t think there’s anything weird about that. ‘Helen, You Bitch’ is one of the three songs featured on Circuit des Yeux‘s new 10″ CDY3, due out this winter on Magnetic South. Originally a solo project for Haley Fohr, the forthcoming Circuit des Yeux release finds Fohr joined by a full band. Fortunately, that only means more clamor; this is probably one of the best pieces of noise I’ve heard in a while.

Monday, July 13th, 2009

SOUNDS LIKE
“Lonely, I am so lonely”, says her Myspace page. Sounds somewhat like U.S. Girls. Or Zola Jesus if she was more into experimental folk. Pretty dark and a bit disturbing. Me likes.
“…It’s the sound of ‘issues’, the sound of ‘troubles’. You don’t get but one phone call and honey, the girl’s voice makes this message a bit rubbly anyway. Take the manic snorts of Captain Liberty, dissonant as chalk and the next moment as melodic as sharp yet slick, metal teeth. Take the mermaid, 1988, turn the tides, gently, gently away. Selected breath/silences/selected feedback. Take an argument you have here with an empty street while the memory of high traffic is leaking back. Sirenum has a real ‘spiritual food’ vibe and it’s fucking pain and pleasure relief in this real met en zonder sort of way. This world is her world, and pipe if you like it.” Buy it.

Paranoid
