    Rock

    Dirt Face-DIRTFACE is a new project that features Don McGreevy (gtr), Brad Mowen (drums), Milky Burgess (gtr), Steve "Stebmo" Moore (keys), and Jim Davis (bass). It's sound is best described as Nazareth-like Pink Floyd tunes crossed with Burning Witch and Earth. You'll even hear some Rocka Rolla era Priest in there, too. It’s a melodic, slow(ish), soupy, tonal, chordal, phasey overloaded overlord from the makers of Master Musicians of Bukkake.

    Sometimes life throws you for a loop. You either have to adapt something to make things work, or give it up. Sometimes the change forces something completely different that you would have never done in the first place. Such is the story of Noise-a-Tron, a two-piece experimental electronic band from Seattle, consisting of drummer/programmer Jason Bledsoe and keyboardist/sampler Lea Bledsoe. 

    Jason started playing drums in 1995 in a small rural area of Indiana, and after a brief move to Washington, ended up in Florida playing with the band Bullhead. The band had recorded 2 EP's, and in the summer of 2000, added Terror Organ bassist Lea Rudko (Bledsoe). Lea was born in Michigan and grew up in Los Angeles, California where she began to play bass. At 21 Lea moved to Tampa, Florida and was the creative force behind two piece experimental noise project Terror Organ with Angel Corpse singer/bassist Pete Helmkamp. After both bands had disbanded in early 2002, Jason and Lea had started playing with The Human Echo and were married in 2005. The Human Echo put out two full-length LP's, and after several tours, finally called it quits in early 2009. From there the ashes of The Human Echo became Noise-A-Tron in August of 2009.

    Noise-A-Tron’s debut self-titled EP, released in August of 2010, was a perfect example of some of the bands finest attributes. It showcased their ability to churn out abrasive riffs layered with noise and sampling, all without being redundant. Their first full-length Vast Arcane released on Bleeding Light Records in 2015 further expanded on those ideas, and the full experience was formed. Or so they thought…

    The band was extremely happy with the full-length, but a much needed change was going to be essential if the band was to carry on. Lea had been struggling with tinnitus for over twenty years and the constant blasting of drums, cranked up amps, and keyboards just weren’t going to work anymore. Instead of hanging it up for good, the band decided to go a different route. Now, Jason is primarily sampling his acoustic drum tones using a sampler while also incorporating electronic drum tones, and Lea is focused more on creating electronic soundscapes that are layered on top. The end result is something remarkable and a complete departure from their previous work, but it’s still very much Noise-a-Tron. In addition to the changes in the band, they have also teamed up with artist Eric Nielsen to create a fully synced visual experience during live performances.
