Noise meets rock, they shake hands and arm wrestle to a standoff. They’re evenly matched – crisp drum thwack and buzzy synth, marching music and analog freakout in equal parts. That’s what you get with a producer who’s got a knack for melody and a confident touch behind the controls. Telvisio’s new double EP, ‘Til Deaf/Fuck the ‘80s, blends the best parts of the electronic underground with a punchy sense of drive. Telvisio’s Jim Tinsley played the Oakland warehouse scene for years, blasting out pirate radio and releasing tapes before they became hip again. Now in Pittsburgh, he draws a connection between the two cities, the creative freedom available in areas where artists can afford to live and work. That’s evident in his sound. You catch traces of Silver Apples and Chrome’s exploratory structures, and the sonic terrorism of Big Black, but tempered with the playfulness of Wolf Eyes and Fuck Buttons.
