The 1900s will also be playing the event. Tix are $12 bucks in advance or $15 at the door. You can pick’em up at the PHT or Ear x-tacy. People Noise will also be playing the Forecastle Fest at the end of July.

Album Review:

Alternative Press PEOPLE NOISE

Ordinary Ghosts
Let them haunt you.

Vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Zeke Buck was a co-founder of disco-funk dance machine VHS Or Beta, but don’t expect his new project, People Noise, to inspire any sort of discotheque insanity. As the evocative music on Ordinary Ghosts demonstrates, the Louisville, Kentucky, band are the latest addition to a crop of artists (see also: Asobi Seksu, Autolux) who are bringing back shoegazing – a style of music characterized by sculpting beautiful music from chaotic noise. (In People Noise’s case, think early Smashing Pumpkins and Radiohead – or ask your parents about Swervedriver and Ride.) The best songs on Ghosts (the molasses-like slow burn *The Killing Fields,* the Muse-meets-Verve title track) temper swirling reverb and fuzzed-out guitars with sections of tranquility; another highlight, the string-sweetened *Turn Around,* is a laid-back slice of psychedelia featuring Buck’s Thom Yorke-esque croons. Ghosts drags a bit in its midsection, but the pair of squall-pop gems (*Harrison Bergeron* and *Sedation*) are the catchiest bits on the album. (SELF-RELEASED) Annie Zaleski
