xiu xiu as a full band is amazing.
last night I played a couple songs for Jevon's housewarming. Everything was just battery operated. Dana sang with me on a cover of 'no no no I won't come down no more' by Michael Hurley and Jev played (uncannily well) the stupid ouija oscillator thing I made this week.
I built my first hex oscillator today, just on a breadboard still, but used photoresistors between inverter inputs and outputs. I lit a candle next to it in the basement and listened to the pitch modulate with the flickering light. I'm gonna use three next to each other at different distances and partitioned off and make a really unsteady chord.
