Aim Low and Les Beyond could not be further from each other musically. Aim Low have earned their reputation as one of Montreal’s loudest bands, three guitarists shredding and hitting pedals shredding and hitting pedals shredding and hitting pedals. Les Beyond performs delicately, strumming low tones with precision that you can only hear if you allow yourself to. Together they have the ability to create a strategically played wall of sound loud that you may want to bust out some ear plugs for your own living room. Side B is an ode to their hero of broken ear drums, Rhys Chatham, and may we all slowly go deaf.
Four guitarists creating a carefully strategized wall of sound. Call it doom, call it drone, call it shoegaze, it's fucking loud. Blast this one cause you don't like your neighbours anyway.
