What makes people respond to something? Is it honesty? Anyone can be true, say what makes sense to them – talk about how they feel. It’s especially tricky to answer this question in a world where it’s never been easier to be heard, but never been harder to get anyone to listen.
It can be confusing doing something when it’s all you know. It means you are constantly sacrificing, whatever it is, to try and get someone to see things your way. It’s personal and it’s a message not everyone will receive. Friendships disintegrate, patterns becoming habits and everyday you wake up the world you know is different. Still, we make ways to relate with people, we search out meaning and make sense of our surroundings.
These are themes Disappears have been working out since their formation in 2008. Over the course of three full lengths in three years for the esteemed Kranky imprint, Disappears have taken the raw energy and intensity of post-punk and filtered it into the repetition of dub and minimalism.
With the recent and amicable departure of Steve Shelly, Disappears return with the Kone EP, 30+ minutes of new music that asks the listener to do something rare these days – listen. Abstract and experimental, Disappears use the 12” format to it’s full potential – take chances and get weird. Recorded in Chicago at Minbal and mixed in Dallas by John Congleton, Kone takes every opportunity to stretch out into the void and roar.
Following the April 16th release date, Disappears will be touring the US this Spring as they put the finishing touches on their new LP to be released later this year through Kranky. Known as a fierce and electric band to see live, Disappears are not to be missed.
