There's something interesting in the watering hole shared by Ohio's prevailing noise scene, with local label Epicene Sounds at the forefront of an entire movement in sound...with bands like Teeth Collection, Watersports, and To-Night Golden Curls holding the torch for a special little nook of the genre. In a time where noise is hailed as the "new punk rock" or is utilized as an agitation device/retaliation against musical conventions, anything unique and singular is refreshing and appreciated. To-Night Golden Curls is not just "anything" however, and it's certainly not just "noise". While it is most often decidedly non-musical (the definition of noise in music), it is NOT decidedly unpleasant by any stretch. Found sounds and drifting haunting melodic passages ebb and flow through the foreground while distant clatters and unidentifiable ruckus ensues somewhere in the distance. Imagine being stuck in a dark motel room on the outskirts of town in the dead of night. One of your neighbors is slowly and methodically rearranging furniture. In another room, a scuffle ensues, the muffled voices barely audible. In yet another, a haunting soundtrack plays out to no one and the world continues turning....the entire experience is as haunting as it is familiar and reassuring.

hypnotic country tinged madness from the back hollers of georgia. multi-instrumentalist nick stinson combines harmonica, guitar, and vocals all meshed together by thick echoing sinues. drones and melodies become occasionally indistinguishable and the whole mess somehow relates something vernacular and regional as it does something bizarre and in a world of its own.
