TLASILA Blog: A forum for all things related (and of interest) to the experimental collective To Live and Shave in L.A. Founded by Tom Smith in May 1990, TLASILA is antithesis, energized at the juncture of aesthetic revulsion. Genre is obsolete.
this year To Live and Shave in L.A. released The Grief That Shrieked to
Multiply, a collection of 72 remixes by a wide variety of participants
(myself included) spread across three CDs and an 80-minute bonus download
(basically another CD's worth). The remixes were further remixed when
TLASILA founder Tom Smith mixed each disc of material into one
long, seamless track. The result was four complex and difficult beasts,
Voltroned together to make a veritable behemoth requiring purposeful and
thoughtful digestion. It was easy to lose track of whose remix you were
listening to as there were no time notes provided. The sum is an
immense obelisk. Today, though, Tom has finished uploading the separate
tracks for easier, bite-sized digestion and instant recognition so check
out the answer key as a set on Soundcloud."
Here. The set will only be available through November, so grab it while ye may. Or, feel free to explore it leisurely, or ignore the mammoth fucker altogether.
