This past May ADULT. were featured on Brainwashed's The Eye. The 20 minute clip includes an interview and live clips.

The In My Nerves video was premiered last week on the Thrill Jockey vault.

ADULT. are also on the September cover of XLR8R.

And over at Slave to the Details you can find an mp3 off Gimmie Trouble. I contribute to the site and we're relatively new, so yeah...

9/18/05 08:16 am - elegiasexta - J+J+J+Magas+N.O.I.A.

The new J+J+J album They Hump While We Go Nuts includes a remix of "Portable Ultra Sound" by N.O.I.A. and a cameo by Magas on "High School? You Mean Inverted Caste System". Sounds lovely, erotic really.

The album comes out October 18 and can be purchased at the Johann's Face Records website.

7/31/05 02:19 pm - elegiasexta - Magas Live at the Tastee Freez





It could've been an awesome night of electro, but unfortunately Magas' set had to be cut short to five songs. I think he opened with Walkie Talkie, then followed with the four new tracks. The new songs are way more complex than anything he has done before, the sound it's more harsh and throbbing. I can't wait for the album.

"Fresh from a European tour with Brussels' DJ STEL-R, MAGAS returns to the studio to complete the long-awaited follow-up to 2003's FRIENDS FOREVER. Pre-production will occur over the summer, with the final product to be recorded in September, at Keyclub Recording, in Benton Harbor, Michigan. The new songs, several of which were debuted in Europe, showcase a heavier, wilder, ARP-driven sound. Because the good folks at Ersatz Audio will be very busy with ADULT., MAGAS will seek another label for this release. Expect news in coming weeks."
