Even their live sound suggests a veritable army of sound makers. On top of that, Cinder Cone creates its sound live without the use/hindrance of computers, sampling, or keyboards--they only employ drums, guitar, and throat. Even live, though, the band notably sounds as if drummer David Foley has at least 8 arms and, at times, as though guitar player Anthony Fournier is playing two guitars at once, creating a massive wall of aural bombast. The gentlemen of the band take some cues from a golden-era Sonic Youth, the unorthodox instincts of Unwound and Fugazi, the complexity of Drive Like Jehu, and the less-is-more intuition of Shellac and CAN, but Cinder Cone have clearly forged a sound that is unmistakably their own.
With one full-length, an E.P., and a steadily growing arsenal of songs, Cinder Cone has every intention of bringing its music to all interested parties. Bring earplugs. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
