Glowing Men by Angry Red Planet

arp_glowing

MCSD NetLabel is proud to announce
Glowing Men
by
Angry Red Planet

Indianapolis, IN based Angry Red Planet consists of Joe Howard (keyboards, guitar), Simon Howard (keyboards, guitar) and Mark McCleerey (percussion). They formed in 2012 as a merging and continuation of previous projects. Their music is a beguiling, frequency-defying combination of synthesizer textures, edgy percussion and arcane spoken-word fragments.

Particularly striking is their conflation of compelling melodies and sweet tones with unapologetically gritty noise. Their album Glowing Men is a collection of what are essentially well crafted songs, albeit without singing. But the album is also a fascinating journey through lovingly constructed sonic architecture – angry indeed at times, but often playful as well, and in any case a trip worth taking again and again.

Todd Campbell

Todd received his training in classical percussion at West Virginia University, studying with Phil Faini and Dave Satterfield. While at WVU in the mid 90’s, Todd took lessons in electronic music and FM synthesis with Gil Trythall – lessons and experiences that still inform his music today. In 2008, Todd embarked on a quest to release ten solo album-length recordings in ten years. Six years and six releases later, Todd is finding an innovative and critically-acclaimed compositional voice utilizing electro-acoustic percussion, guitar, and hardware synths and effects, combined with many years spent as a touring rock drummer. Todd’s solo performances invite you to experience a predictably unpredictable foray into a sonic bricolage, incorporating masterful drumming and avant-whacked synth wizardry that holds a curious treat somewhere in the depths. Currently, Todd is assistant professor of music at Bloomsburg University, and is completing his dissertation.

John Collinge of Progression Magazine rated Campbell’s 2010 release “Translation” 12 out of 12 stars, observing that Todd’s “prolific and complex contributions on drums, cymbals and percussion lend depth and resonance to his incredible array of electronic applications,” creating “uncharted forays into sonic alchemy that probably surprised their creator as much as the listener.” John Patrick reviewed Todd’s 2011 release “Pathology,” noting that he “sounds like Sandy Nelson, Mitch Mitchell, and Art Blakey touring Sandoz laboratory, imbibing the product, then being turned loose in a studio full of synthesizers, plus acoustic and triggered percussion!”
