Black Pus, Baby Asprin DVD, Flesh Wounds

When: Thu., May 30, 9:30 p.m. 2013

Brian Chippendale has long created massive soundworlds with minimal means. In infamous scuzzmonsters Lightning Bolt, for instance, Chippendale and Brian Gibson created tidal paroxysms of belligerent rhythm and tone with bass and drums. At their best, they emitted great big bursts of neon light from a tiny, congruent core. With the Bolt moving at less-than-lightning speed the last few years, Chippendale has trimmed his approach once again as Black Pus, a solo project that uses his manipulated voice, bruising drums and a bass-tone oscillator to create and deftly control the impression of chaos. All My Relations, Black Pus' debut for Thrill Jockey, plunks strains of Afrobeat, pop, hip-hop, harsh noise and old-fashioned rock 'n' roll in a rusty-blade blender. The alchemy is propulsive but not pedantic, like a party that throws itself. With Baby Aspirin DVD and Flesh Wounds. —Grayson Currin
