Black Needle Noise (the latest project by renown producer John Fryer) has launched 6 new songs on Bandcamp. Each song is available as a separate name-your-price download with its own cover artwork. For the 6 songs John Fryer worked with several vocalists, namely Jarboe, Antic Clay, Andreas Eleven’s (known from that lovely Norwegian act BC), Ledfoot & Zia.

You can stream and download the 6 songs below. Style wise Fryer remains in the shoegaze regions with lots of attention for subtle guitar work and electronics. Advised especially to everyone who loves the early 4AD period when experimentation was omnipresent.

For the newbies, John Fryer is an English record producer best known for his production and engineering work on cult releases by Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, This Mortal Coil and many more. He has since worked on several projects of which Black Needle Noise is his latest.

And available already since January was the track “Bang Bang”.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
