Sunday night show was correct as hell

16 03 2010

2 hours of brutality- quick and painful. That’s how we do it.

Thanks again to Maruosa and Miyagi for making the long trip to get rowdy with us. And thanks to everyone who came out to check out the insane styles. SO KILLER.

Check out some other pics here.

Xrin Arms/Speak Onion split release, available now!

11 02 2010

Click the pic to get to the download!

This split release comes from two of the most vital electronic musicians working today. These two are separated by space and style, but couldn’t be closer after touring together and performing together for over two years. From psychedelic to brutal to harsh to pulsating, Snow Braids brings it all into one tight package.

Xrin Arms has been circling America, like a vulture looking for roadkill to feast on, destroying venues with zero remorse and whether you love him or hate him, you have no choice but to respect his determination and progression as an artist.  This once-leader of a digital grind movement has moved on to a much more colorful pasture; a harsh psychedelic one.  Incorporating live instruments and moving on from the typical e-grind formula, Xrin Arms has managed to find himself standing alone with practically his own music genre.  These four songs will be sure to please the harshness addicts and the melody lovers all at the same time. Trip away.

Speak Onion brings his particular style of noise-laden breakcore to the table, abandoning all caution and pushing the levels to the red. Only one track is needed to get the point across here. And the point is absolute ruination through sound. After the sprawling excess of “Trigger Pusher” Speak Onion returns to economical efficiency and packs a mammoth wallop into this 7-minute 5-finger sandwich.  Nothing less would suffice to close out this epic release.

Good luck finding your teeth.

Some video from Sat. at Coco66!

8 02 2010

Saturday was a monster party, as you might have guessed. Stank funk bludgeoned by relentless hardcore morphing into mad science blips all ruined by noisy breaks. Typical of us at I.B.N. Thanks a billion to Naetron, Insect Deli, Joy Through Noise, and Coco66 for the killer PA.

Check out some videos!

Insect Deli really murdered everything in the world. Here’s a taste:

And Speak Onion did the usual insane ruckus. Seeing is believing:

And check out this later portion of the set, including post-set dance moves (for the ladies). What are those samples he’s dropping in there? Sounds like tru necro kvlt black metal grymness, right? Well, I’ve said too much.

This is what an I.B.N. party is like. Just so you know. Stay tuned for more!

Speak Onion’s Metabolor Reviewed in Regen Magazine

22 01 2010

Regen magazine recently posted a review of Speak Onion’s Metabolor (IBN002). Check out the review here. Regen says of Metabolor,

“For these brave few that seek out breakcore for their listening enjoyment, Speak Onion is the man for the job. Blending the intricacies of breakcore with the sheer power of noise, Metabolor is perfect for the breakcore fanatic,”


“Speak Onion brings forth gunfire drums and imminent doom with his music,”


“…but those well-versed in the genre [breakcore] will find Speak Onion a strong player in the field.”

among other fantastically positive things. We are not surprised. Speak Onion is the boss of NYC drum’n’noise and he doesn’t stop at Metabolor, recently having dropped Trigger Pusher on us, and with Snow Braid— a split with Xrin Arms— about to drop, the madness continues.

So grab Metabolor and Trigger Pusher and catch Speak Onion playing for free at Coco66 next month to see what this is all about.

Some news and some upcoming releases.

9 12 2009

First off, we have new releases from Speak Onion and David B Applegate coming this month! Just getting the mastering done. Speak Onion’s “Trigger Pusher” is an EP of 2 looooong tracks capturing the bonkers live energy he’s been bringing to the stage of late, and David B. Applegate’s “King Of The Campus” is a full length bursting with sklatter, BOOM, and blOOr for days. Get excited. Any minute now. Check out the artwork.



Also, check out Speak Onion’s new website design, and find him on Twitter. You can expect him to be hollering about breakbeats, fish, beards, eating, and maybe Nord synthesizers or whatever the fuck that dude is ever talking about.

Also, did you find me on facebook yet? I didn’t!

Thermometerometer- Overcoming Adversity City, Digital Leak!

12 11 2009


We are rewarding, you, the Immigrant Breast Nest faithful, with the first access to the brand-newest Thermometerometer styles, in digital form, before the CDs are even ready to print. Get down on it.

Thermometerometer returns with Overcoming Adversity City, a nightmare romp through the cracked prisms of doom metal, electronic improvisation, tricked-out beats, and the good, old-fashioned weirdness for which they’re best known. After spending its earliest days getting shapes, Thermometerometer has now begun to break them down into micro-shapes and colored dust from which they form the crayons responsible for drawing these seven slabs of electrified sonic abstraction. Need an edgy doom fix? Hear Seventeen Million Dollar Block and Arcane Arabic Soccer Magick. Want some bombed out spastic bass & drum machine abuse? Please enjoy Total Breakdance Society and Ironic Ethnicity City. Or, if you’re inclined toward digital wrecks & noisy eclectic beat disruptions, check out Ticking Amazing and Mad Derelict. No matter where your mind wanders on the spectrum of fresh electronic sounds, T-MOM is there with something you’ve not yet imagined.

Glowing T-MOM review in Connexion Bizarre

10 11 2009

Connexion Bizarre, one of the finest out-there electronic music hubs on the internet, has reviewed Thermometerometer’s debut record, Who measure’s the measurers?.
Click here for the review.


About Who measure’s the measurers? CB says, “Flips, clicks, drones, buzzes, pops and even glitches are thrown together and have things done to them that they could never have imagined in their wildest nightmares…” and “‘Who measures the measurers?’ retains far more accessibility to a general audience than most projects this avant-garde would manage to…”

Accessibility? Ok, if you say so!

This comes just in time to get the people ready for the latest and greatest T-MOM offering, to be released this month, Overcoming Adversity City. It will dagger your ears.

5 11 2009

The Free Albums Galore blog, which highlights only the finest free music from all over the internet, has featured IBN’s David B.

New Thermometerometer record on its way!

25 10 2009

Watch this space!  A new Thermometerometer joint, “Overcoming adversity city,” will be dropping from the back real soon.  Delayed because Dan broke his foot in a pot-hole and needed to focus on trip-hop for a while, Thermometerometer is now in the final stages of the process which results in your having brand new electro-spew to cram in your ear-holes.  “Overcoming adversity city” has the hot tracks!  It has the hot beats & wrecked bass noise!  It is swaggering!  Famous people who have heard it already say it could very well be the newest Thermometerometer record ever!  GET READY.
