Things keep speeding right along for EnD. On June 8th, 2018 the boys played a show at Kelly’s Bar in Hamtramck with Dear Darkness, Ladyship Warship, and Steve Harvey OSwald. As someone stated in a Facebook post:
“Dude. You’re one of my favorite people ever. Cant wait to see more PA. Sorry we couldn’t stick around for SHO last weekend but EnD melted our brains. We had to leave and reevaluate what we’ve been doing with our lives after their set was done.”
High praise indeed! (but please kids, remember, always stay for the whole show. You might miss something spectacular.)
Of course the show was recorded and will be released soon. Keep an eye on the Store for updates.
More gigs on the horizon as well. Keep an eye on this site or EnD’s Facebook page for news.Read More
A good night was had by all in attendance at Trixie’s on February 24th. Witchpucker set the evening off to a very good start with their blend of vocal manipulations and ambient guitar. Run from the Future debuted their electronic compositions with amazing precision to a fully enraptured audience. Three very different acts yet with serious common threads. There was extreme gear envy going on through out the night. Eddie and Damon look forward to working with both groups again in the future.
As always, EnD recorded their performance that evening and it is presented here for your listening pleasure. We release all of our music thru Bandcamp and End’s Live series are always free to download. Due to some minor technical difficulties their are four points in the show where the sound drops out for a couple seconds. We hope this does not discourage your enjoyment of this incredible performance.
You can grab a copy of the live recording at EnD’s Bandcamp site.

2017 was a weird year for music for me. I worked from home primarily so my active listening to music wained a bit, since I spend a lot less time in the car and my day job is not always conducive to listening to new music. I’ve also been focusing a bit more on my own releases, hence the low output for album reviews this year. I’m hoping to change that in the coming year.
This being said I still bought a great deal of music. Outside of the Secret 13 mixes I’ve grabbed this year, the following are a list of the notable records I bought in reverse order of purchase:
Ambit – Corrupt-*Data_4
KK Null – Ghostscapes
John Vorus – Foot of the Crow
Chelsea Wolfe – Hiss Spun
Panda House – Ursa Astem
Dale Crover – The Fickle Finger Of Fate
Aaron Dilloway – The Gag File
Cooper Raines – Tonight We Sink in This Canoe
Gallery Six – under the sun
Spaace – 1
Thomas Andrew Doyle – Incineration Ceremony
Wraiths – Music for Aging
P.O.S – Chill, dummy
Author & Punisher – Drone Machines
Super Unison – Auto
Thelema – Eye of the Inner Universe
I’m willing to bet I’ve missed a few. I also purposely left off multiple purchases for a single artist. I further left out albums I purchased that were not released this year.
Some were really good. John Vorus’s record in particular is easily the best purchase this year. A couple were a complete letdown, such as Dale Crover’s solo effort. A couple were unexpected gems that came out of no where. Thomas Andrew Doyle (of Seattle’s Tad fame) released the impressive Incineration Ceremony, a collection of compositions more suitable to soundtrack work than his regular stoner metal fare. Spaace’s self titled two track ambient release was a very unexpected diamond in the rough that I’ve quite enjoyed.
I leave these here for you all to peruse and listen to for yourselves rather than try to do a mini review of each album. I’m not a fan of doing “best of this year” lists anyway.
Sessions 12 through 17 are now available from their BandCamp page with links from our Store page. Shown here is Session 14. As always, all Session EP’s are priced at $1 a track and contain anywhere from 1 to 4 tracks per Session. Recorded live in our multi-track studio direct to our board then mixed and mastered in house, these EP’s are perfectly suited to be heard in headphones while out enjoying the fall evenings. Available in all digital formats.
On July 29th, 2017 EnD played their first live performance in front of a captivated audience at the Heartbreak Hotel with CigButts, Mellified Man, and Corridors. As with all live experimentation this was recorded, although due to technical difficulties with a stereo mic the audience reaction was not captured. The album is available for FREE from their Bandcamp page!
Also in EnD news, the boys will be special guests of the North Coast Modular Collective at the Dreamland Theater on Saturday, October 14th! The listed performers for the event are: Bill Van Loo , verzerren, Jason Engling, XiNNiW, and ambit with music between sets hosted by DJ Klickbox. As with the last live performance projected film will be supplied by Remains! Don’t miss it!
