No Answer: Lower Floors (De Stijl)

Strange to think that in the teeming network of noise musicians only one band has ever achieved something approximating crossover success. Wolf Eyes, the long-running project of three Michigan troublemakers, has ruptured conventions for nearly two decades with loud, uncompromising payloads of absolute discord. Things are different on No Answer: Lower Floors. Wolf Eyes play things a little softer, focusing more on the creep than fear. The spartan, glassy-eyed chant of "Choking Flies" and bounding emptiness of "Confession of the Informer" are still creepy, and still singular, yet entirely different. It speaks to their talent that an anti-Wolf Eyes album sounds just like a Wolf Eyes album. (Sun., 10:30pm, Holy Mountain)
