Operator Share Puzzlephonics I Full EP Stream with FACT Magazine
EP Due out this Friday, October 9th
EP Release Event “Gesamtkunstwerk” Friday at Brooklyn’s Reverse Gallery
Operator’s infectious krautrock rhythms and interlocking analog synth grooves burn their way into your consciousness like a well oiled machine on Puzzlephonics I and yet… this is only the beginning. The EP is an expansive and hypnotic blend of noise pop, motorik rhythms, and skronky experimentation at it’s finest, a well crafted voyage of analog synth grooves and manipulated guitars. The first piece of the puzzle has been revealed, though Operator are merely getting started.
FACT Magazine shared the exclusive premiere, sharing “If DIY has been reduced to something of a buzzword, Operator embody the term in its truest sense. Their debut EP is self-produced, self-released, self-designed — they even built all their pedals from scratch. That kind of control shows in the focused propulsion of Puzzlephonics I, which manages to lock you into its hypnotic rush with only a few songs.” Expanding upon the band’s influences, FACT added, “‘Mr. Director’ shows a clear admiration for Stereolab with its motorik pulse, analogue squelches, and cooed backing vocals, but Operator feel like part of a distinct New York lineage.”
This is an early show. Open gallery at 7. Bands begin at 8. Food and beverages by James Peach included with price of entry ($10). An event that plays to all of your senses. Don’t miss out.
