Gridfailure’s David Brenner on new album “Dismemberment Cabaret,” and much more!
It has been said that Gridfailure is for those that love a challenging listen. And, we are not ones to argue that point. However, Gridfailure is a band that must be experienced as the way they mold noise, drone, ambient, jazz, and dark sounds of all natures together into a cohesive mass of thought provoking music is a thing of beauty. Their most recent album, Dismemberment Cabaret finds the band collaborating with veteran trumpet player Mac Gollehon and the results are astounding. Buke recently sat down with David Brenner for a wide ranging discussion surrounding the new album, how it came to be, how it was working with Mac, and a multitude of other topics. This discussion is one for the record books so we don’t want to spoil it any further. With that being said, we now bring you this conversation in its entirety so grab your beverage of choice, a seat, and enjoy.Continue reading

We’ve encountered a lot of the…unusual here on Rainbows in the Dark, but I think this one might be the most unusual of them all. Not that unusual means bad. It doesn’t inherently imply quality, and (spoiler alert) it doesn’t apply here, but Dismemberment Cabaret, the newest collaboration between harsh noise outfit Gridfailure and uber-prolific trumpet player Mac Gollehon might be the toughest release I’ve ever had to get my mind around in these parts. To sum it up succinctly would be almost impossible. The title of the album kind of tells you exactly what you’re getting yourself into.Continue reading
Video Premiere: GRIDFAILURE – “It Feeds On Negative Energy”
New York’s dark ambient, experimental GRIDFAILURE released their second full length, Irritum, last month on the band’s second anniversary. But in that two year span they’ve amassed quite the catalog of dark and apocalyptic yet challenging releases which all started with the cannibalistic and off kilter nature of debut full length Ensuring the Bloodline Ends Here. After much experimentation, Irritum is an altogether more cohesive mass of noise driven rhythms that illicit an overwhelming sense of dread and paranoia. Tasty stuff to be sure. Today we’re excited to bring you the video premiere of third track “It Feeds On Negative Energy” so head inside to check it out. Continue reading
