Yellow Swans and Entente Cordiale
October 26, 2007 - 09:00 PM
Yellow Swans play a constantly evolving mass of psychedelic noise that is both physically arresting and psychically liberating. Their music is powerful rendering of free rock, black electronics, and white light vibrations.
Consisting of Pete Swanson (vocals, drum machine, and electronics) and Gabriel Mindel Saloman (guitars, feedback, electronics), Yellow Swans create a dense ocean of sound using various analog and digital machines, all locked in a spiraling web of feedback.
Yellow Swans, having spent two years in Oakland, CA, are based once again in Portland, OR, where they originally formed in the Fall of 2001.
They have just finished a year in which they toured the USA, the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and are about to embark on their 3rd US tour in the Fall of 2006. They have also just released their second studio album, \"Psychic Secession\", on LOAD Records.
a fluid collection of string oriented players, creating drones, textures and a collective secular trance.
