I must admit. This is a kind of a “stumble upon” post for me. All thanks to a few of our great readers, Josh Higgins & Andrew Dickerson. They both sent tip submissions that led me on a ‘Wikipedia’ style wandering that drew me to this particular release. What they sent us, is to come!! The amount of submissions we get from you guys is overwhelming at times in the absolute greatest of ways. You are the best. We thank you!
On to the music!!
This particular piece comes from the intricate minds of As Cities Burn guitarists, Cody Bonnette and Christopher Lott. Taking on a whole new process with writing and recording has led the music in a fresh direction, a direction of instrumental experimentation amid the style of psych-pop so common of the ’60s and ’70s. “Standard instruments are warped, octavated, morphed until they become unidentifiable: formless and new.” We are immersed in a space, completely foreign, and alien; completely new and refreshing. Each song constructed to be broken down and rebuilt again resulting in a bending adventure of hallucinatory and profoundly deep proportions. These guys had fun, and thanks to that, we now have a phenomenal piece of music that allows us to relish in the aural journey these fine folks meandered.
Wall of Ears replicates the way deep dreaming feels or how sneezing can be pretty in slow motion.

Wall of Ears is what happens when As Cities Burn guitarists Cody Bonnette and Christopher Lott embrace experimental recording and writing processes. Perfect Organ Assembly is the afterbirth of a strange composition process: songs being recorded as they were being written. Under their twisty fingers the studio became an instrument as involved with the composition of the songs as their creators. Working this way allowed Chris and Cody to patiently sculpt their sonic vision, manipulating the bizarre orchestrations of inverted samples, field recordings, guitar fuck ups, and unconventional instruments (such as the singing saw, toy pianos, vibraphone, and many more), in a surreal soup of texturized hallucinations.
