The Laughing


With an aural aesthetic pulling from somewhere between early Roxy Music and the stretches of contemporaries such as Animal Collective, The Laughing has quickly attracted the attention of audiences looking for a little dance in their rock as well as a little art in their pop. Over the course of a couple of thematic EPs (TIGER CRY [2007] and JUNGLE [2008]), The Laughing evolved and honed not only their sonics but also their methods, developing a sound which is a blend of psychedic rock and noise infused art-pop.

With an aural aesthetic pulling from somewhere between early Roxy Music and the stretches of contemporaries such as Animal Collective, The Laughing has quickly attracted the attention of audiences looking for a little dance in their rock as well as a little art in their pop. Over the course of a couple of thematic EPs (TIGER CRY [2007] and JUNGLE [2008]), The Laughing evolved and honed not only their sonics but also their methods, developing a sound which is a blend of psychedic rock and noise infused art-pop. Now set to self-release their proper full-length debut, FEVER, The Laughing has created a record that draws heavily from the past, while warping and manipulating those elements into something altogether new. Though grounded in a traditional rock line up of guitar/vocals (Logan Middleton), bass (Sean Neesely), drums (Grant Van Amburgh), and organ (performed on FEVER by Austin Jenkins and Logan Middleton), The Laughing also utilizes a vast array of percussion, bells, dulcimers, ukuleles, synths, clarinets, flutes, blankets of noise and lush harmonies.

Varied instrumentation and ornamental arrangements adorn core song structures and melodies that take cues from the likes of Harry Nilsson, Os Mutantes, Jorge Bem, Silver Apples, Love, Roxy Music, Sonic Youth, 13th Floor Elevators and more. Borrowing from some of the production tactics of classic dub recordings, with a small dose of noise rock, The Laughing has constructed an album of songs that bears only slight resemblance to its broad spectrum of influences, in turn creating something special and unique. FEVER is a collaboratively engineered effort by the likes of Erik Wofford (Black Angels, Voxtrot) working at Cacophany Recorders and Danny Reisch (The Lemurs) working in his East Austin home studio. Additional tracking was accomplished by Middleton himself working in his apartment, slicing and manipulating the core material.

The resulting work juxtaposes the warmth of analogue tape and vintage effects with the infinite otherworldiness of digital. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
