How To Destroy Angels

Reviews can wait: Surely I am not really back on Bawley until I have written my first Nine Inch Nails related post.

Last year Nine Inch Nails played their final tour. At the time front man Trent Reznor did not rule out working on new Nine Inch Nails material but said to expect some new non-NIN stuff. Now, he has teamed up with his wife Mariqueen Maandig and longtime Nine Inch Nails collaborator Atticus Ross to form How To Destroy Angels.

A few mp3s have already started circulating the interwebs and there is more to come. On June 1st How To Destroy Angels will release their debut EP as a free download - better if you pre-order from as you will get an advance copy of EP track The Believers.

If you want to know more about the band you can ask them yourself via facebook/howtodestroyangels or check out a complete deconstruction of how a How To Destroy Angels song is made courtesy of Wired Magazine. (The iPad version of the magazine also has an interactive element. Eds Note: this probably the only useful thing I have heard you can do with an iPad)

Back in the Game

I have been busy of late but between a intercontinental house move, a month long walk across Patagonia, sudden catastrophic laptop failure, and my increasingly desperate attempt to find a house, I have had plenty of time to listen to new music.

Sadly, plenty of time to listen does not mean plenty of time to update Bawley.

The next few weeks will be catch up time, come back for reviews of:
The early word is that 2010 is becoming the awesome year we all hoped it would.
