Sounds documents the improvisational side of XBXRX. The band has built a reputation over the past decade for its singularly high-energy live performances and committment to pushing the limits of rock music forms and Sounds is the next step in this progression. Through the years improvisation has been a major part of the XBXRX live show, but remained unrecorded until now. The album features 7 improvisations of distinctive character and mood ranging from frenzied storms of white noise to pointillistic chamber music.
xbxrx has constantly toured the US since 1999 and is scheduled through 2007 currently. The band has garnered a strong profile in recent years through its association with Polyvinyl records, releasing the acclaimed albums Sixth In Sixes (2005) and Wars (2007.) Sound will definitely appeal to those attracted to the experimental aspects of XBXRX and reconfirms the band's long-running solidarity with the noise scene.
