TFFNI - Cloud Formations
Okay, first off. Todd Rupp is the fucking man. He is hands down one of the most talented artists in the Lehigh Valley. He and his boy have been working on this project for quite some time, and I've always very much appreciated it, but unfortunately never could find a ride to any of their shows.
Anyway, onto the music itself. I've become somewhat of a noise fan lately, not like a huge connoisseur or anything, but when I like noise, I like it a lot. That being said TFFNI is definitely one of the coolest noise projects to come out of our area. They have a lot of dark ambience a-la Brenoritvrzorkrahowthefuckdoyouspelltheirnamefuckit, without any of the annoyingly bad attempts at black metal. Lots of cool vocal effects though. Lots of shrieks varied in volume, which I love and should probably work on myself.
I believe the last track is a live track from the Mammoth Shed hence the title @Mammoth Shed, and it's freaking awesome. It sounds like fucking men losing their minds in some industrial plant.
Anyhow, check it fools:
