INVISIBLE THINGS + NPR

"The squirreliest, weirdest and loudest noise-rock band in recent memory, which makes sense given its membership: guitarist/vocalist Mark Shippy (US Maple) and drummer Jim Sykes (Parts & Labor)."
–NPR Music

"Noisy post-punk music, sometimes straying into early no wave territory... Textured and bleak... before the entire song transitions into a '60s psychedelic dreamscape drone spectacular."
–VICE

"Driving, eccentric noise rock."
–BrooklynVegan

"Skronky indie rock zaniness... A tapestry of gloriously messy tones."
–Exclaim!

"A racket all you Lightning Bolt lifers will dig."
–Self-Titled

NPR Music has debuted Invisible Things' video for the song "F," off the duo's new LP, Time As One Axis, out now on New Atlantis Records.

Watch the clip, here. 

NPR's Lars Gotrich calls Invisible Things "the squirreliest, weirdest and loudest noise-rock band in recent memory, which makes sense given its membership: guitarist/vocalist Mark Shippy (US Maple) and drummer Jim Sykes (Parts & Labor)."

The "F" video was directed by Dylan Pecora, also responsible for Invisible Things labelmate Upsilon Acrux's latest video, on display here via Guitar World.

Time As One Axis, Invisible Things' second album, was recorded by the legendary Martin Bisi at B.C. Studios in Brooklyn, NY. Bisi's long list of credits includes Sonic Youth, Swans, Unsane, Cop Shoot Cop, John Zorn, Bill Laswell, and Herbie Hancock.
