Artist: PINK NOISE
Title: Alpha
Format: LP
Label: Almost Ready
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"The Pink Noise became one of the best bands in the world in a single night last spring. After a week of practice in Detroit the members drove down to their debut in New York City, Gotham city, the big she-bang, only to walk onstage to instruments they couldnt play and songs they couldnt remember. After antagonizing the crowd for five minutes or so, the purposefully bad set was abruptly ended by a 300-pound bouncer, who proceeded to toss them out of the door. Nobody, including the label-heads in New York who beg to release The Pink Noises music, has heard from them since. Luckily the Alpha record was finished before this fiasco. It is the work of sinister pop scientists running on all cylinders, cramming multiple organs into a single cadaver only to reveal a skeleton for each song. Mixing influences from across the pond (theyd fit in with late-70s Manchester) and across the continent (Northern Cali pioneers such as Chrome and Minimal Man come to mind) with a primitive aura rarely adopted to this style, Alpha gets high scores in every category, its urgency and immediacy unparalleled in the land of limp keyboard amateurs. Now with live drums! Essential 09 listening." - Almost Ready.

Artist: PINK NOISE

Format: LP
Label: Almost Ready

Artist: PINK NOISE
Title: Birdland
Format: Cass
Label: Beniffer Editions
Country: Canada
Price: $14.50
"A project from Toronto, Canadian Mark Sauner who seamlessly amalgamates the gamut of his musical influences - from early-mid period Madonna to Formula 1 video game soundtracks into a low-fi Californicated dream-cream of sedan/convertible cruise-pop. This album of 2 minute post-wave compositions for synthesizer, guitar, drum machine and delay-swollen vocal comes in a fold-over/over-sized silkscreened WTF sleeve or something." - Beniffer Editions.

Artist: PINK NOISE
Title: Graffiti Youth
Format: LP
Label: Kill Shaman
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The Pink Noises 3rd(?) full-length LP. A follow up to their great releases on Sacred Bones and Almost Ready. Awesome, pulsing lo-fi synths surrounded by dirty drum machines and distorted vocals from this Canadian two-piece. Highly recommended if you ever enjoyed the Residents or anything in that vein. A bit dirtier and more analog than some of their previous work, ⿿Graffiti Youth⿝ is 12 tracks of pure analog noisy synth pop. Limited to 500 copies on black vinyl, this will go fast." - Kill Shaman.

Artist: PINK NOISE
Title: Gilded Flowers
Format: LP
Label: Pleasence
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Originating in Toronto and making his way over to Montreal, MARK SAUNER has seen THE PINK NOISE through several incarnations and the release of five LPs. The Pink Noise has graced the prestigious label Sacred Bones twice; selling out of the first record Dream Code so quickly that they were asked to do another. The album Gilded Flowers was first released in 2009 as a cassette with Campaign For Infinity and met with great acclaim." -Pleasence

Artist: PINK NOISE
Title: Gold Light
Format: 7"
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"Canadian 2-piece The Pink Noise return for their second release on Sacred Bones. Last year?s Dream Code LP ended up topping most peoples best of 2008 lists. Electronic and organic drumming with keys with staccato punk guitar blasts--think the Residents played through a Big Muff. A double sider of deranged bedroom punk that shames the dozens of one-man-bands hunched over a Tascam trying to make a cheap knockoff of the original. The record sounds like it was mastered through a boombox onto a thriftstore cassette. The Jerkwave cassette release, the previous 7-inch single, and their track on World?s Lousy (both on Almost Ready Records) are all long gone." -Sacred Bones

Artist: PINK NOISE
Title: Greedy Heart
Format: LP
Label: Skrot Up
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"New wave/no wave Montreal punks THE PINK NOISE have crawled out of the basement and into the light with their latest album entitled Greedy Heart. The bands 6th full-length album sees them shaking off the claustrophobic sounds of tape hiss and ghetto blasters that resulted in their being named "Montreals most nihilistic band." Originally the solo-project of Toronto-native MARK SAUNER, The Pink Noise first established itself with a series of highly regarded albums on Sacred Bones, Kill Shaman, Night People, Almost Ready, and Pleasence Records. Now based in Montreal, The Pink Noise operates as a full band, with a sound that re-imagines the impulses that characterized the earlier work through more structured songwriting, higher fidelity, and lyrical clarity. While still rooted in the retro-futurism of Sauners previous albums, Greedy Heart expands the vision by adding the cold wave synthesizer of Electric Voice Records MATT SAMWAYS, the abstract guitar of GRAEME LANGDON, and the Crass-like drumming of PORN PERSONS and INTERNATIONAL LOVE TRIANGLEs TARA DESMOND. With its mix of psychedelic colourful effects, gritty guitar, and booming drums, the result is an album full of dynamic tension that conjures the bands equal interest in glam rock, post-punk, and new wave while at the same time embodying a newness beyond its allusions to classics like Television, Soft Cell, The Fall, or Roxy Music. Limited edition of 300 copies." -Skrot Up.
