Nice, thanks! I think they’re playing a brief residency at Cafe Oto over the next few days. Might try to make it...

This is great, thanks for the heads up. The videos are excellent (More Data, Destroying Anything) too.

I guess they've been workshopping some of this material for a while? I've been out of the loop since Free or so.

one year passes...

The new album The World Will Decide is the best thing they've done since Helter Stupid. The stronger theming definitely helps.

The mirror image sequel to last year’s *True False*, *The World Will Decide* turns the focus away from our very human inability to accurately define reality, and towards the technologies attempting to do a better job at it. But if sorting true from false seemed like a full time job back when all we had to keep track of was our own minds, life alongside the machines built to connect us only seems to multiply the uncertainties.

A year or two later, I pitched Thingmotactic: https://papercomet.blogspot.com/2020/10/negativland-pitch-see-prev.html

Thought True False was uneven, mainly wordwise, but some amazing sounds---will have to check the 2020, din't know about that!

Hosler is a very lively conversationalist!

Yeah, and I wish I could have used more of what he was saying, but he was great with what we had room for, coming across at all times as the real deal. Negativland is a way of life.
